The musical film won five Oscars in 1966

一九六五年电影《音乐之声》拍摄时所用的道具和服装以一百三十万美元的价格在加利福尼亚洲拍卖成交。其中包括领衔女主角玛丽亚(由朱丽·安德鲁斯扮演)在演唱 DO RE MI 这首名曲时穿过的那套连衣裙。以下是 BBC 记者 Peter Bowes 的报道

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.
