Some of the most memorable film costumes ever to grace the big screen will go on sale in Beverly Hills this weekend.

The items - including Judy Garland's outfit from The Wizard of Oz and Marilyn Monroe's white dress from The Seven Year Itch - are from a personal collection owned by the film star Debbie Reynolds.

The Hollywood icon has spent the past 50 years buying and preserving items of movie memorabilia, all in the hope of putting them into a museum.

Peter Bowes went along to take a look at the collection of iconic costumes.
