The grey wool suit Gene Kelly was wearing as he splashed through puddles during his Singin' In The Rain dance routine is expected to fetch over $20,000 (£13,000) when it goes under the hammer at an auction in Dallas, Texas later this week (06Dec13). Heritage Auctions bosses are selling the clothing item, which memorabilia collector Gerry Sola bought for just $10 (GBP6) at a MGM studio sale in 1970. It's one of two iconic wardrobe items set to go to auction this week - Bruce Lee's yellow jumpsuit from his final film Game of Death is among the highlights up for grabs at a Spink auction in Hong Kong on Thursday (05Dec13).
