Gone with the Wind jacket valued at $90,000 with Bonhams

Bonhams' TCM auction stars a jacket worn by Clark Gable in Gone with the Wind

The highly anticipated TCM PresentsThere's No Place Like Hollywood auction from Bonhams will star a jacket worn by Clark Gable in Gone with the Wind.

Clark Gable Gone with the Wind Gone with the Wind is one of the most collectible films of all time - big bids can be expected

The auction, which takes place on November 24 in New York, is the second collaboration between Bonhams and Turner Classic Movies, the first of which saw a Maltese Falcon statuette sell for $4m last year.

This year's instalment features a piano from Casablanca, as well as the $60,000-90,000-valuedClark Gable jacket.

Also starring is one of the test dresses worn by Judy Garland as Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, which is estimated at $200,000-300,000.

The original dress seen on-screenmade $480,000 in 2012, while another of the prototype dresses sold in 2011 for $910,000.

"There were several variants made before they settled on the one we all know from the film," said Bonhams' Catherine Williamson, head of entertainment memorabilia.

"It doesn't appear on screen but we do have stills of Judy Garland modelling it. They took pictures and then the producers would take a look and see if they liked it or whether they wanted to make more tweaks."

 Any item of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia is highly coveted, though dresses worn on-screen are the ultimate piece for collectors

Another of the star attractions in the sale is Marilyn Monroe's saloon gown from River of No Return, which is valued at $400,000-600,000. It will attract big bids, as it is featured not only on-screen but also in publicity shots for the film.

Paul Fraser Collectibles has a wonderful selection of Marilyn Monroe memorabilia for sale, just part of our movie collectibles.
