The actress has kept the black leather trousers locked away after being sewn into them for the 1978 film, having only shown them to Oprah Winfrey when she appeared on the show in 2011.

The outfitthat Newton-Johnwore for the famous scene was made in the 1950s, so the garments were already 25 years old by the time the film was shot. An iconic piece of movie history that has produced many imitations since, they will undoubtedly see strong bids.
