We're Not in Kansas Anymore: Dorothy's Dress Sells For Serious Cash

No, not anything Bea Arthur wore, Dorothy Zbornak didn't own any damn dresses! Now, if I'd said "white pant suit," then maybe. We're talking about Dorothy from Wizard of Oz! I know, less exciting, but that blue gingham tablecloth-dress fetched a cool $480,000 at Julien's Auctions in Los Angeles. Oppan Gingham Style! (No?)

According to Deadline, other goodies like Steve McQueen's racing jacket went for $50,000. The prop watch worn by John Belushi in The Blues Brothers went for $15,000 and his Blues Brothers sunglasses brought $16,640. Jaclyn Smith's dress from the original Charlie's Angels TV series brought $15,000. A Jayne Mansfield cat print jumpsuit sold for $16,250, and Julie Andrews' dress from The Sound of Music cost $38,400. Marilyn Monroe's purple skirt from River of No Return brought $50,000. Publicity material from The Wizard Of Oz including keybook, continuity and photos sold for $33,750.
