Dorothy's 'Wizard Of Oz' Dress Prototype Going To Auction


A prototype of the iconic blue and white checkered dress made famous by Judy Garland in "The Wizard of Oz" will be going to the auction block.

It was a test dress and one of the very first that had the checkered fabric we've all come to know.

Lara Spencer of ABC reports, "Somewhere! Thank you. ... Bottoms estimate for the dress somewhere between $200,000-$300,000. ... My guess, you hear it here first, it will go much higher than that."

And ABC's Lara Spencer might be right. The original dress Garland actually wore in the film sold for $480,000 at auction in 2012, according to CNN.

And those iconic ruby-red slippers Garland wore were appraised at $2 million to $3 million but never went to auction thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio and Steven Spielberg. They led donors to purchase the shoes so they could be given to a museum instead.

So, if you've got a few hundred thousand to spare, that piece of movie memorabilia could be yours. It goes to auction Nov. 24 at Bonhams in New York.

The auction is going to have a "There's no place like Hollywood" theme. Other items up for sale include a piano from "Casablanca" and an outfit from "Gone With the Wind."
