Part two of Debbie Reynolds’ extraordinary film memorabilia auction took place today in Hollywood.

After success of her first auction in June of this year, a further 415 lots were up for bidding in the second auction.

Marilyn Monroe’s strapless pale green silk gown from ‘Let’s Make Love’ was the highest selling item of the auction – going for $295,200
