DROPPEDIT'S ONE-SHOE SCENES IN MOVIES AND TV
This is the second list containing description and pics of movie and TV scenes in which women happen to lose their shoes. This category is different from "Prime" List because: the female character slipped her shoe off on purpose; or the errant shoe is readily recoverable or carried in hand; or she removes the remaining shoe and continues barefoot; or the loss is a result of or accompanied by editing flops and inconsistencies in the movie; or the female character is already dead; or the dose of realism is low (such as twisted Cinderella theme, fairy tales), and so on.
The movies I have seen myself, for which more detailed and more reliable description is available, are marked with (*). Remarks and feedback are most welcome, so that I can make corrections and/or extend the list further. Use email@example.com.
My thanks here to all whose postings and inputs were used.

- Batman Returns*: Kim Bassinger loses
her right high-heel pump while climbing the bell tower's staircase with Joker. The Joker picks her

- Moonlighting*(TV): In one
episode that takes place entirely on a train, Cybill Shepherd loses a
pump while fooling around with Bruce Willis in the sleeper compartment. She
walks out one-shod (tan nylons) and walks for a while like that carrying her
other shoe at hand. Her shoe is back on in the next scene though. In another
episode, Cybill is getting completely drenched, and shows up at the office
with one shoe on and one off.
There is a short scene where Audrey Hepburn is getting
dressed and asked George Peppard to look for her shoes. He finds one under the bed, but they cannot find the other for a while. She finally finds it in an odd place - a flower vase on the table next to
her bed. Story credits belong to "Kinja" and "Feeture Feature".
- Only You
A semi-Cinderella theme in which Marisa Tomei is running from
would be suitor/prince, and one of her heels get caught in a Rome cobblestone
street. She walks off without it and removes the other immediatley. She walks back carrying her remaining shoe, when her friend asked what happened to her shoe, she looked around astonished and replied "I don't know", then sits down for a while holding her remaining shoe . The guy retrieves the shoe and eventually
returns it. Photo credits belong to "Feeture Feature" and story to "Kinja".
Annette Benign removes one of her high heels off and throws it at Warren Beatty. Then,
she packs a suitcase and storms out with a limp wearing one shoe. Photo contribution by "feeture feature".
New Pussycat: 1965 comedy with Woody Allen. Scene 1: Woody Allen is in a fight in a library where his fiancee works. During the fight she is standing on a stepladder with one shoe on, one off and I can't find anything showing her losing the shoe. (It may have been edited out of the final version.) The clip is a minute or two and shows her with the one shoe off quite well. The scene and picture credits belong to "feeture feature".
Scene 2: Woody Allen’s character’s fiancée was getting out of a car and had her shoe fell off and onto the pavement. This seemed to be something, not in the plot, but just allowed to stay in the final release since it was not all that obvious - she just picked it up and went on. Story credits belong to Kinja.
the Living Dead (1968):
Character played by Judith O'Dea, while fleeing from a zombie in the cemetery, falls and loses one shoe. Before getting up, she kicks the other shoe off and runs. She is seen for, maybe an hour or more of the movie, in her stocking-feet. “Kinja” discovered reference to a book contending that the scene was not intended to include a shoe loss but when filming, she lost one shoe. So they added in a scene where she loses the other one so she would not be one shod, but totally barefoot. It was a cheap production obviously. In 1990 remake of the same movie, same details, only here she loses one shoe, and kicks off the other while running. Same amount of screen time and some nice close-ups, too. Photo contribution by "feeture feature".
Anne Parillaud, who plays a vampire, lost her shoe on a snowy sidewalk, and hopped
around on one foot until a man helps her to put it back on. Later in the movie, she lost her shoes again for an extended period, and a cop even carries around one of the high heels she lost. Also, woman in heels going from car loses a shoe. But the camera shot is substandard. Photo credits "Feeture Feature".
Zeta-Jones kicks off her shoe and Eric Idle catches it (black nylons). PHOTO Credit: "feeture feature" from mickflux.com
Cool World: Running out from a nightclub, Kim Bassinger trips and walks out of her shoe. She stops to retrieve it, but just ends up leaving it there
for the rest of the scene. In the next scene, she has both her shoes again. Contributed by "Kinja" and “feeture feature”.
(TV): Jeannie played by Barbara Eden is on a swing
and knocks over Master. Good scene with one shoe on and one off.
Fastest Guitar Alive
(1967): 15 minutes into the comedy western (takes place around 1880-1890), one of the can can dancers at the saloon goes into her dressing room and she finds Roy Orbison's character and a pretty girl kissing in embrace on the couch. She
is mad because they invaded her private space, and they fall off the couch and quickly stand up. You see the girl reach down to put on her left shoe. Then
the camera pans out and you can see her right shoe, a light blue 3-inch,
pump lying on the floor right next to her. She makes no attempt to put it on. As
she is trying to get out of her dressing room, you can see a noticeable
'one-shoe' limp, and right before they are about to leave, the girl whose
dressing room they invaded hands her her missing shoe and she carries it out. Story credits belong to Kinja and photo credits to “feeture feature”.
Cincinatti (TV) : In one episode from late 70’s, it is wintertime and there is no heat in the
studio. Jennifer (Loni
Anderson) is wearing pale gray 3 inch slingbacks, and light gray hose. Johnny Fever happens to have some hard liquor in his bag and shares it with her so they can warm up a bit. This loosens inhibitions and Jennifer puts her leg up on his, takes off one of her slingbacks off and gives it to him and
tells him to keep it as a souvenir, which he does. After that, you only see
her above the waist but can see that she is walking lopsided because she has
only got one shoe. Later on in the show, Johnny Fever gives the shoe to Andy
and when Jennifer sees Andy with the shoe, she puts her leg up and asks for it
back. He comes over to put it on her foot when she starts wiggling her toes
and he chickens out and just places the shoe in her hand. This is one of the
best female foot shots on a sitcom that I've seen. Contribution made by
“Nylonman”; caption by “kinja”.
Stevens (TV): In Episode 19 ("Strictly Ballroom") first aired in Feb
2001, the girl goes to a party and her foot gets stuck in the toilet. With a
friend’s help she succeeds in freeing her foot but the shoe remains stuck.
Dispirited, she leaves the party and begins her walk home one-shod, when
another friend comes running after her, and like in Cinderella, puts her missing shoe back on . Contributed by "Kinja".
Island: In Episode 38 (Beauty is and Beauty Does) There is a scene
where they have an island beauty pageant and Mr. Howelll has poured glue on
the stage to sabotage Mary Ann. She gets a shoe stuck on the stage and has to
step out of it and walk in one shoe until the end of the contest where they
announce a gorilla as the winner - the only 'native.' In Episode 62 (Will the
Real Mr. Howell Please Stand Up) a Mr. Howell look-alike lands on the island
carrying a 3" pump. He fell overboard a yacht drinking champagne out of a
girls shoe. He was also trying to take over Mr. Howell's identity as a
billionaire. In Episode 82 (All About Eva) they did a sort of a Cinderella
theme where Eva Grubb landed in the island to live out the rest of her life -
alone. She felt so ugly. She was wearing 3" pumps and she heard a noise
(Gilligan and the Skipper) and she ran scared and she lost a shoe in the sand.
Gilligan found it. The girls fixed her up and she looked just like Ginger
(Tina Louise played a dual role) and Eva promised to rescue the castaways but
eventualy she became conceited and decided to go back to Hollywood and become
'Ginger Grant' who was a beautiful movie star before getting shipwrecked. Contribution made by "Kinja" and "Stratius".
(1966-1968): In an episode (The City on the Edge of Forever) with Joan Collins playing Edith Keeler, Kirk follows Edith up
some stairs, and she trips. On the camera view, as Kirk catches her, she has both shoes on. But, when she walks up the stairs, she has only one. This is actually an editing flaw.
Apparently they filmed this scene several times and in one of them she must
have lost her shoe on the way up. They edited the last part of the take where
she lost her shoe and spliced it into the final cut. Therefore she is missing
a shoe for no apparent reason. Story credits belong to "Kinja"; photo contribution by "Feeture Feature".
C.H.U.D.D.: In the very beginning a woman with
flip flop sandals is walking her dog. When she comes to a man hole, something
reaches out, grabs her leg, and pulls her in. She leaves one sandal behind.
You never see the woman again, but throughout the opening credits the sandal
is shown until a street cleaner wisks it away. Story credits: "Stratius".
on Elm Street 4: Actress playing Alice Gets one shoe sucked off by huge vacuum movie screen. Story contribution by "Stratius", photo by "feeture feature".
On Season 3, episode named "The One With the Giant Poking Device" has Chandler breaking up with woman, Janice. He pulls her shoe off as she goes, saying “you can’t leave! I have your shoe!” But she walks off with one shoe. Chandler never did give her the shoe back in a future episode and she has appeared in one or two since then. He thought that pulling off her shoe would force her to not leave him but she did anyway. Story contributed by "Stratius", "Wang Tohan", and “Susan” via Kinja.
In the shootout at the drug dealers apartment, Gina Gershon's
character and another woman are running up the stairs. The other woman's shoe starts coming off , and seconds later it fell below Garshon's elbow. Story credits "Stratius", captions provided by "feeture feature".
At Halloween, teen girl (played by Tammy Reger) is walking through woods at night in high-heels, and she gets jumped by a man in a skeleton mask who tries to rape her. In her rush to escape, she jumps into a sewer hole, already missing one shoe. And a barefoot can be seen as lies in water. When the camera pans out to the outside where the man is looking for her, it shows her shoe lying on next to the access hole, and you hear her screams, because she is eaten alive by slugs. Contributed by "Stratius", “Erik Lee” and “feature feature”.
Dynasty: There is famous scene
in an episode (first aired 4/13/1983) of the show Dynasty where Lynda Evans'
and Joan Collins' characters - Krystle and Alexis - get in a cat fight in the
mansion's reflecting pool in the garden out back. Alexis gets out of the pool
carring a high heel shoe that came off and she starts to limp back. After a
few steps she just slings the shoe off to the side. They were trying to
emphasize anger I suppose or maybe the strap broke and the shoe was supposed
to be unwearable. The first 4 photos from HERE
are during the cat fight. Photo and story credits: Kinja.
(1982-90 setting in Vermont) Not actually a shoe loss, but the three
dolts who ran the cafe next door (Larry, Darryl and the other brother Darryl)
thought there was. Julia Duffy's character, Stephanie, who was the Stratford
Inn's maid and cook, was disturbed by the chirping of a bird outside her
window one night so she threw one of her houseshoes - a pair of cute furry
slides with a small heel - at it to shut it up. The three guys found it in the
yard and returned it to Stephanie (they had apparently seen her wearing it
before) the next morning thinking they were like Prince Charmings. Stephanie
then discovered she had killed the bird and it was a protected species. So,
she then wanted to hide the evidence so she buried it. The guys happened to be
digging for food and they found her shoe - now it's slightly dirty - and they
returned it to the Stratford Inn where Stephanie found it had mysteriously
reappearred. Then she is getting paranoid so she drops it in the swamp far
away. Again the guys find it and secretly return it and she finds it.
Stephanie thinks the houseshoe is reappearing mystically as some sort of
torture for killing the bird. The guys think it is strange that Stephanie
could lose her shoe so many times in such odd places. This ARTICLE
references this episode. Contribution by "kinja"
House: : On the series finale, D.J (Candace Cameron) talking about
whether she will attend her senior prom with her dad (Bob Saget) and Aunt
Rebecca (Lori Loughlin). The actual show script form episode #192
Dad: DJ. I really think you should go tonight. You only get one senior
Rebecca: Yeah, my prom was incredible. I felt just like
DJ: Did you meet Prince Charming?
Rebecca: No, but I lost my
shoe. There was a mouse in my car and my date had a head like a pumpkin. But
the point is this, it's your prom. You'll remember it forever. Contribution by "kinja".
and Shirley: There was a
Christmas episode where Laverne and Shirley went to a department store to
shop. They were standing next to a rack of clothes just as it was announced on
the intercom that that rack was going on sale. They were caught in a mob and
in the fray, Laverne and another woman played tug-o-war with a sweater they
both wanted. As she lost the battle, she fell backwards into a cart with her
legs sticking up. She was wearing loafers and white socks. While stuck in the
bin a guy took one of her shoes off and walked away, leaving her in the store
with one shoe. Later on they were manning a charity stand and she is still in
one shoe and the guy who stole it donated it into the kettle where people were
dropping donations. Also, in the opening credits from the first season,
Laverne and Shirley are running across the parking lot at the Schotz Brewery
where they work and one of her penny loafers falls off and she has to stop and
go back and get it. By next season, the scene has been cut short in the
opening before she loses it. There is an episode where the girls get into a
fight with two guys who are in their apartment and supposed to be their dates
but they turn out to be jerks. Laverne loses a shoe when she jumps their the
couch during the fight. In the original run they showed her after the guys
leave going back to look for her shoe. In syndication, the scene is cut short
before she looks for it. In a later episode, after they move to California,
they have a clothing drive for charity and their sexy neighbor Rhonda (Leslie
Easterbrook) donates a pair of mismatched shoes - implying she had lost one
from each pair. Contribution made by "Kinja".
Company: There was an episode from the second season where it showed
Chrissy getting ready for a date and she was wearing one shoe - a high heeled
slide (when backless shoes first started coming back into fashion in the late
70's). She looked all around in the living room and eventually went in the
kitchen to ask Jack if he'd seen it. He had not but he told her to pretend he
was a shoe and think where she'd be. "Ditzy" Chrissy did as he suggested and
the first place she looked, she found it and put it on. In the syndicated cut being aired more recently, this part is left out, and the scene begins only moments after she slipped her shoe back on after she found it. On a later episode, Jack was invited to his boss' house for dinner and when his boss left the
room, leaving him alone with his wife, she came onto Jack and slipped off one
of her pumps and played with his leg under the table. He got up to flee a
possible damaging situation and she chased him around the table wearing one
shoe. Story credits belong to Kinja.
Crowd: This show ran one season after Three's Company with the star of
the show, Jack, having moved in with his girlfriend, Vicky, into an apartment
over the Bistro where he was the chef. There was an episode where Vicky was
standing on the balcony on the second floor of their apartment and Jack
accidently and unknowingly knocked her off. She landed in the garbage dumpster
below and when she walked upstairs she was dirty and missing a shoe. This was
the end of the episode so they did not resolve if she ever went back into the
dumpster to look for her shoe. I suppose they had her come up missing a shoe
merely to add to the otherwise dirty and messy look she had haven fallen into
garbage. Contribution by "kinja".
Eye: This was a very short-lived detective series about a
father/daughter detective agency. The series therefore made the daughter
(Stephanie Faracy as Tracy) to be a bit of a klutz who often fell down and
stubled along during chases. The show also seemed to lampoon other shows which
portray high-heeled women as both very tough and very feminine who can run
everywhere in high heels. On at least two occasions - once trying to run up
the long set of steps into the court house and again chasing a suspect across
the park, she had a shoe come off two or three times - the latter being caused
by her spiked heels on her pumps digging into the wet ground. Her dad was with
her both times and was frustrated with her clumsiness. In the park, she ended
up having so much trouble that she took off both shoes to continue her chase.
(See Kinja's series plot review at the IMDB link above.)
Hillbillies: Never did see Elly May lose a shoe in 10 years on the
air, but there was an episode where Mr. Clampett and the clan were bored and
Mr. Drysdale let them set up work on an abandoned floor of his Commerce Bank - mostly carpentry and sewing related stuff. One of the ladies in the
secretarial pool wanted an excuse to meet the rich Jed Clampett so she went to
where they were working, purposefully broke off one of her high heels and went
to Mr. Clampett to fix it. She took her shoe off and left it with him to work
on and she came back later to claim it. They did not show more than her
limping away, but she would have had to go back to work in one shoe for
awhile. Contribution by "Kinja".
Jones: In one episode a woman in a taxi with another passenger takes
off one of her high heeled sandals because it is pinching her. The other
passenger slips the key into the sole to hide it. Then he tries to steal the
shoe form her house later. Found this episode description on the 'Net: Episode
150 in Season #7; first broadcast 3/01/1979; title - A Short Happy Life;
Description: Buoyant Foxie comes to visit her cousin Betty, and is dated by
fellow passenger Arnie. She doesn't know that he hid the key to a locker in
one of her pinching sandals, now sent to a shoe repair. Foxie is pursued by
two men, who try to get the key after killing Arnie. There is another episode
from an earlier season (around 1976) where Barnaby comes to a suspect's house
and she is wearing one shoe. He comments on it. Apparently, he found her
missing shoe at the crime scene. Contribution by "Kinja".
athletes: Kinja reports a trend has been for celebrating athletes to throw their shoes into the audience after a victory. Since they have numerous pairs, losing one or a pair is insignificant. Even walking to the locker room in one shoe is no big deal. This link is a photo of US pro ladies soccer player Julie Foudy throwing a shoe into the audience. She is attractive and in one shoe as is nicely illustrated in the shot. Whereas this photo shows Serena Williams having apparently spetted out of her show during Australia Open.

Charmings: The eleventh episode of this 1988 series poked fun at Snow
White and other inhabitants of the Enchanted Forest. They had been
transplanted to 1980's Los Angeles and this particular episode had a great
shoe loss storyline. The queen of shoe loss, Cinderella (played well by very
pretty Kim Ulrich), appeared at the Charming's house (Prince Eric and Snow
White) and proceed to lose a glass slipper (she asked Eric to find it which
he did - under the couch.) Then later, she tried to leave - with the Fairy
Godmother's help - and she lost both shoes on a botched attempt. She found
only one "I can't find my other glass slipper" then left again - this time for good. Each time, she was wearing a pair of 2" open-toe clear upper slides. Contributed by "Kinja".
Hill Show: One funny skit took place at a nightclub and at the end of
the night, several of the unattached guys stood outside the club hoping to
give one of the girls a ride home. The gag was that one at a time a girl would
come out and use the guy itself as the ride home. One guy, the girl contorted
into a motorcycle and rode off on his back. Another guy, she sat on like she
was in a boat and tore down a stop sign and used it as an oar to paddle them
along. Benny was the last guy left and it started to rain. The last girl rode
him like a scooter, but first she raised one leg, jerked off one shoe and
threw it away before pressing her nyloned foot on his back and using the other foot to push the "scooter" along. Contribution by "Kinja".
In Episode 297 which first aired 4/06/89, April Stephens is at Cliff
Barnes' condo and had earlier taken off her shoes - pink 3-4" pumps. She is
ready to go and can find only one. Cliff gets on the floor and runs his hand
under his couch and chair to no avail. Just when they were about to give up,
he found it under a side table. Contribution by "Kinja".
Loves Chachi: On an episode of this short-lived spin-off from Happy
Days, Joannie gets her ankle stuck between the seats in a movie theater.
Chachi helps her get her foot out and in the process, Joannie kicks her loafer several rows in front of them. I think the show ended with them looking for it. Contribution by "Kinja".
Now: There was an episode of Nashville Now (which ran on TNN and was
hosted by Ralph Emery) where Lynn Anderson was one of his guests and there
were a few more people in adjacent chairs (He talked to them one at a time
like Johnny Carson, Jay Leno, David Letterman, etc...) One of the other guests
was a very large and tall man and they ended up letting her try on one of his
large boots and walking around. While she was walking, the guy hid the 4"
white pump, she had removed to try on his boot, behind his chair. They went to
a commercial break so they did not show how the prank played out. She had her
shoe back, though. Contribution by "Kinja".
Pete Smith Short
- Movie Pests (1944): This comedy short discusses movie theater
patrons that annoy others. A well-dressed woman wearing 3" black pumps loses a shoe under the seat at he movie theater (she kicked her shoes off becasue her feet were tired from shopping) and her husband later crawled under the seats looking for it. Her shoe slid forward and landed under the seat of another woman who had taken both shoes (white pumps)off. The second lady had to get up and leave and she walked out of the theater with one white shoe and one black shoe. Story contribution by "Kinja", pics by "feeture feature".
Junction: There is an episode (Yogurt Anyone?) from the old-1960s where one of the daughters (Betty Jo played by Linda Henning) wants to impress a college guy she is dating. She finds a pair of high heel stilletos and and goes to a movie with him. You see her change into one of the shoes before she goes out. Then, when in the movie theatre, she kicks off her shoes and struggles later to retrieve them. She kicked one under the seat in front of her, and very good shots of her searching for it using her foot, she even mistakingly brushes her foot on the shoe of another patron. Story courtesy of "RHTMAN", also contributed by "Kinja".
Various TV Commercials: There is a Hanes pantyhose commercial where a lady struggles with a shoe while trying to get into to taxi. Before she barely gets it the taxi drives off. Another Hanes
commercial from 1980 has a Cinderella theme with a lady losing a backless high heel
slide walking down the stairs to the Ball (of course the Prince is to there
to retrieve and replace her shoe at the bottom). A while ago, "all matt" posted the you tube link to this commercial in yahoo group "losthershoe". Payless Shoe Store has run to couple of interesting ads with the theme - " You never know when you'll need
to new pair of sneakers/pumps, etc... " One commercial has a majorette in the
band marching in a parade who performs a high kick and sends a tennis shoe
through the air and down into a manhole in the street. Another one has a woman and a dance instructor on a cruise ship. She gets dipped and she flings one of her red pumps into the air and into the ocean. A GEICO Car Insurance commercial shows a mother running down the street (imitating a car) wearing one brown pump going to pick up her daughter from school. How she lost the shoe is not shown (contributed by "Kinja", photos by "feeture feature"). An interesting ad aired in Europe for Nivea deodorant, begins with an attractive blonde sitting in her apartment with fuzzy hair etc. Then the doorbell rings. She reaches for intercom and finds out this is her boyfriend. She tells him on the intercom that the elevator is broken and he must use the stairs. That’s a lie to delay him so that she can put herself in shape. First, she rushes out to the hallway and places one of her hi-heeled shoes (kind of a slingback) in between the doors of the elevator, so that they would not close. As the guy is shown climbing the stairs (high-rise building, it seems), she rushes back in her apartment, quickly puts her hair in shape, a little makeup, and also applies her deodorant (the message of ad!). When the guy reaches her apartment and rings the doorbell the second time, her looks is perfect except for one thing: she misses one shoe. She runs to open the door and welcomes and kisses her boyfriend, always one-shod. The guy takes a funny look at her one-shod feet, then turns his head towards the elevator and sees the lonely sling back blocking the doors. The ad ends with a smile in his face making clear that he understood what was going on. An interesting and creative twist of the one-shoe theme. Nivea captions, contribution of “Nigel C”.
The Love Boat This 70's and 80's hour show featuring three mini-stories on a Princess Cruise ship generated a couple of shoe-related incidents. One
situation was not a shoe loss but an interesting social mixer. Julie McCoy the
Social Director came out to the pool area during a singles cruise and was
carrying a basket. She had all the girls remove one shoe and put it in the
basket. Then she had the guys draw one and meet the girl whose shoe he drew
out. There was a Cinderella storyline in Episode 60 in the third season in an
episode first airing 10/27/79. Melissa Sue Anderson played the pary of a girl
named Cindy who ran out of a Halloween masquerade ball and left behind one of
her shoes - some type of a shiny high heel sandal or pump. The Yeoman Burser
"Gopher" found the shoe and eventually figured out that it was Cindy's - a
girl he liked but did not recignize when he danced with her at the ball. Contribution by "Kinja".
Forward - movie Helen Hunt's character is late for a big date with her son's teacher and her son helps her get ready. He grabs a pair of very sexy
high heeled slides with spiked heels and a narrow upper strap. She even
comments that they are too sexy for her date but she is late and wears them
anyway. The taxi lets her out at the restaurant and she sees him leaving (He
had given up on her coming). She runs to catch him and she comes out of one of her slides. Her date walks back and retrieves it for her and kneels to replace it on her foot like Cinderella. The loss seemed to be part of the intended plot so she had to learn how to lose that shoe at the right moment and cause it to land where they wanted it to.

(movie 2002): The scene in question occurs near the end and the villan
- the Green Goblin - is on top of the Brooklyn Bridge holding Kirsten Dunst's
character over the edge threatening to drop her in the river and daring
Spiderman to come and rescue her. Right before this, she is walking on the top
of the bridge and her slippers are visibly fuzzy bedroom slippers. When they show her about to be dropped, both her slippers fall off at the
same time and the camera shows them falling into the river. Most probably, it is
computer enhanced. The shoes falling are probably only done to illustrate the
height she is above the river. Interestingly, in other earlier parts of the
movie, she is wearing strappy pumps (almost a retro style) never slides, mules
or even unstrapped pumps. This is interesting because in the movie she is
playing someone 18-19 years old. She has to run in a couple of scenes and this
choice of footwear ensured no losses. In fact I remember thinking at one point
that she woud have surely lost a shoe had she not been wearing strappy pumps.
It would be interesting to know if the director/producer took that into
consideration. Story by Kinja.
