One of Judy Garland’s dresses from the 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz" is set to be auctioned off next month.
The iconic blue-and-white checkered gingham dress with white collared top had been missing for decades but was found in July 2021 at the Catholic University of America (CUA) in Washington, D.C., Fox News Digital previously reported.
Now that it has been rediscovered, the dress will be auctioned in Los Angeles on May 24 in the "Bonhams Classic Hollywood: Film and Television" sale, according to a news release from the CUA.
