The iconic Cowardly Lion costume donned by Bert Lahr in the Wizard of Oz is up for auction in New York.
The costume is one of many rare film relics being sold at the Bonhams auction house on Monday. The costume is fashioned from actual lion hide and was worn in over a dozen scenes in the 1939 film, Bonhams said. The costume is sure to go for a pretty penny, the Associated Press reports: A secondary version recently sold for almost $1 million.
The costume will appear alongside other film memorabilia including props from the Wizard of Oz and costumes from Gone with the Wind, Pretty Woman and Rosemary’s Baby as a part of “TCM Presents: There’s No Place like Hollywood.”
