    Cowardly Lion costume from Wizard of Oz sells for $3million

    'The Cowardly Lion costume from the classic film "The Wizard of Oz" and the piano from the movie "Casablanca" each sold for over $3 million at a New York City auction.

    They were among Hollywood memorabilia offered at Bonhams on Monday.

    The big cat outfit, which went for just over $3 million, had been authenticated as the one Bert Lahr wore in the 1939 film. Its face is a sculpted likeness of the late actor.

    A spokesman for costume owner James Comisar says a secondary costume used in the film sold at auction in recent years for close to $1 million.'
