The Sound of Music A selection of costumes from Julie Andrews' classic movie The Sound Of Music have sold at auction in California for $1.3 million (£866,000).

The garments included the main outfit worn by the Hollywood legend's character Maria, which was described in the auction handbook as "a heavy brown homespun Austrian-style dress with a wheat-coloured homespun blouse".

Floral lederhosen worn by cast members who played the Von Trapp children also went under the hammer at the Profiles in History auction over the weekend (27-28Jul13).

Another highlight was a costume worn by late actor James Gandolfini in his final scene of The Sopranos, which sold for $22,000 (£14,600). The outfit was placed under auction before Gandolfini passed away from a heart attack while in Italy last month (Jun13).

A painting of the plantation building Tara from Gone With The Wind, used in the 1939 film's opening sequence, fetched $270,000 (£180,000), and a diving helmet from 1954 movie 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea sold for $75,000 (£50,000).
