 article about Whiz of a Dress


The dress worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz has been sold at auction.  It sold for $252,000, four times the expected bid.

An unidentified buyer conducted his bids over phone.  The dress is one of six that were worn by 17 year old Garland in the 1939 movie. It also has her name on the inside of the hem and is one of two that has secret pockets.

According to Jon Baddeley, Bonhams collectors department group head, the dress represents the magic of childhood and is cherished memory for millions of fans worldwide.
