The shoes up for auction are believed to be those worn by Dorothy in the famous scene where she clicks her heels together to return to Kansas and they're expected to fetch up to $3m.

Sign of the times

Remaking the classics Universal Studios have announced that they intend to produce a new version of Scarface, the classic gangster story that's already inspired two films.

While the 1932 original was based on the life of Al Capone, Brian De Palma's more famous 1983 version was set in Florida's Cuban underworld and starred Al Pacino. The new film will borrow elements from both films.
