SCARLETT'S BONNET UP FOR BIDDING

The black bonnet worn by Vivien Leigh as the tempestuous Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With The Wind" will be auctioned this week, the Phillips auction house said Sunday.

The actress wore the Christian Dior creation in the box office blockbuster and for publicity stills with co-star Clark Gable, who played Rhett Butler. When filming finished, Miss Leigh gave the hat to London theater critic Alan Dent, her close friend and biographer, a spokesman for Phillips auctioneers said.
