Sound of Music memorabilia sells for $1.3m

Costumes from classic film, The Sound of Music, which i must admit is one of my favourite movies as a child have sold for $1.3m (£845,000) at a Hollywood memorabilia auction in California.
The BBC reports that outfits included the main costume worn by lead character Maria, played by Dame Julie Andrews.

It was described by auction house Profiles in History as "a heavy brown homespun Austrian-style dress with a wheat-coloured homespun blouse."

Floral lederhosen worn by the Von Trapp children also went under the hammer.

The story of a singing Austrian family trying to escape the Nazis prior to World War II won five Oscars in 1966.
