The colourful striped coat is selling for $4,028, but will undoubtedlyachieve far more as the sale draws to its close, such is the demand for important movie memorabilia.

The jacket previously sold for $4,370 - a 118.5% increase on estimate - at Christie's in 1993.

Dick Van Dyke's cheery Cockney character Bert can be seen wearing the jacket during the scene in which he is introduced, and as he sings Jolly Holiday with Julie Andrews' Mary Poppins. The latter scene was a groundbreaking moment in cinema history, as one of the first to combine live action with animation.

Inside the jacket are two hooks where Van Dyke was lifted to sing along with some birds. Its tag reads: "Western Costume Co. Hollywood/ No. 2764-1/ Name: Dick Van Dyke/ Chest: 39 1/2/ Sleeve: 17 1/2". It is in fine condition, though has two minor spots.

Also featuring in the sale is an early signed photograph of Marilyn Monroe, with bids reaching $4,875 so far. The shot shows Monroe as Roberta in the 1951 film Love Nest, which was released just prior to her career in Hollywood taking off.

The inscription reads: "To Renie, Love & Best Wishes, Marilyn". It ismade out to Renie Conley, who worked as costume designer on three of Monroe's films.

Paul Fraser Collectibles has some superb signed photographs of Marilyn Monroe for sale, as well as autographs and an authentic strand of her hair.
