Price did not dampen bid spirit

The Star Late Edition - - PROPERTY360 -

THE WA­TER-stained, grey woollen suit worn by Gene Kelly in the clas­sic 1952 MGM mu­si­cal Sin­gin’ in the Rain’ was sold on auc­tion five years ago for £65 000 (now about R1.2 mil­lion).

The gar­ment was bought by Robert Earl, founder of the restau­rant chain Planet Hollywood, who had been af­ter it since it resur­faced on the auc­tion market early in 2013.

The piece of Hollywood his­tory may have come at a price but will prob­a­bly es­ca­late in value in years to come. – Auc­tions Writer
