Was Obi-Wan Kenobi a friend of Dorothy's?

In the same week that Mish alerted me to the theft of Judy Garland's ruby shoes from a Minnesota museum, it's announced that the cloak worn by Sir Alec Guiness as Obi-Wan Kenobi in 1977 was found during a stock check at a fancy-dress shop earlier this year.

Both are truly iconic bits of cinema history.

Read about Judy's shoes here and Alec's cloak here.
