(Newser) – The blue gingham dress Judy Garland wore as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz was the star of a two-day auction of Hollywood memorabilia. An unidentified buyer paid $480,000 for the dress made by famous MGM costume designer Adrian Greenberg, and another buyer shelled out $33,750 for a selection of studio and publicity images from the 1939 classic, CNN reports. Other items sold in the auction included a skirt Marilyn Monroe wore when filming River of No Return, which sold for $50,000 and a dress Julie Andrews wore in the Sound of Music, which fetched $38,400.
