Minnelli auction raises more than $1m

It was hats off to Liza Minnelli's enduring fame when her signature Cabaret bowler hat, boots and halter-top vest fetched US$81,250 (S$110,890) at a Los Angeles auction. Her hand-annotated shooting script for the 1972 movie sold for US$15,000.

The three-day auction of items from the actress-singer, 72, raised more than US$1.2 million.

She earned an Oscar for her performance as a nightclub singer in Cabaret.
