JUDY GARLAND’S wry, ironic voice has been vividly captured by author JOHN MEYER in Operation Ruby Slipper, a World War II adventure which casts the twenty-one year old singer as an undercover agent behind German lines in 1943. Judy is recruited to go on a secret mission to find a reclusive Nazi physicist, Franz Kintner, who is developing a nuclear-powered battery for Hitler’s U-boats. All Judy has to do is get his picture --- with the camera that’s concealed in the heel of her shoe. Once he’s identified, the Allies can take him out.
Why Judy? She seems an unlikely choice for a spy. But the American Office of Strategic Services has unearthed a fan letter Kintner wrote MGM, asking for Judy’s picture. They’re certain he’ll surface if Judy is the bait.
