The musical film won five Oscars in 1966

一九六五年電影《音樂之聲》拍攝時所用的道具和服裝以一百三十萬美元的價格在加利福尼亞洲拍賣成交。其中包括領銜女主角瑪麗亞(由朱麗·安德魯斯扮演)在演唱 DO RE MI 這首名曲時穿過的那套連衣裙。以下是 BBC 記者 Peter Bowes 的報道

There was intense interest in the iconic costumes as they went under the hammer. Potential buyers, gathered in a Los Angeles auction house, faced competition from bidders on the phone and the internet.

The central piece was Maria's outfit, described by the auctioneers as "a heavy brown homespun Austrian-style dress with a wheat-coloured homespun blouse." The floral lederhosen worn by the Von Trapp children were also part of the collection. The identity of the successful bidder has not been revealed.

The Sound of Music costumes were sold as part of a two-day auction of Hollywood memorabilia. Other items included an original cane used by Charlie Chaplin in the comedy Modern Times and, a month after his death, the clothes worn by James Gandolfini in the final scene of the final episode of The Sopranos, sold for $22,000.
