During ROADSHOW’s 2013 Detroit event, a guest named David brought in an original working script for the beloved Hollywood classic, The Wizard of Oz. The script had belonged to the actor who played the Cowardly Lion, Bert Lahr, who was David’s step-grandfather. After Collectibles expert Simeon Lipman gave the script an insurance value of $150,000, David decided to contact appraiser Catherine Williamson at Bonhams in San Francisco to auction the script. Watch footage from the auction and see how the script joined other well-known Wizard of Oz pieces (right image) in the “top selling lots in movie memorabilia.”
