The dress is one of the most important pieces of memorabilia from the film ever to come up for auction.

Heritage explained that it was "worn by the actress as 'Scarlett O'Hara' in four pivotal scenes: when she's dictating how the 'Wilkes & Kennedy' sign is being placed on the building, when she encounters 'Rhett Butler' [Clark Gable] in the 'What a woman!' scene, when she gets attacked in Shanty Town, and then when she's at home as her husband 'Frank Kennedy' [Carroll Nye] decides to take some action".

A suit worn by Clark Gable in his role as Rhett Butler also sold well, realising $55,000.

It's worn during the scene where Butler kicks down Scarlett's door to tell her he doesn't want to have any more children.
