Dorothy's Dress from "The Wizard of Oz" will be For Sale

Decades after its appearance in the classic 1939 movie, the blue-and-white checkered gingham dress worn by Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz will be up for sale. 

The dress was worn by the actress Judy Garland who played the iconic role. This dress was assumed to be lost at the Catholic University of America. However, it was discovered after clearing out some of the office clutter in the university. Imagine if someone just threw it without a second glance! 

Now the dress is slated to be sold at Bonhams’ Classic Hollywood: Film and Television auction on May 24 in Los Angeles. It has a presale estimate of up to $1.2 million.
