Behind The Scenes With An Obsessive Collector


As a kid, every year on Thanksgiving night, Joseph Maddalena and his family gathered around the TV set in Cranston, R.I., to watch The Wizard of Oz. He was entranced by Dorothy and her ruby slippers, the yellow brick road, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man and even the Munchkins, but there was one prop from the 1939 movie that held him under the deepest spell: the broomstick of the Wicked Witch.

"To me the broomstick was the central plot device and the coolest thing in the movie," he says.
