Scarlett’s Bonnet: The black bonnet worn by Vivien Leigh as the tempestuous Scarlett O’Hara in “Gone With the Wind” will be auctioned Friday by Phillips Auctioneers in London. When filming finished, Leigh gave the Christian Dior creation to London theater critic Alan Dent, her close friend and biographer. . . . Also scheduled for London auction is Marilyn Monroe’s Jewish marriage contract with playwright Arthur Miller. The 1956 contract, decorated in illuminated-manuscript style, will be sold Dec. 20 by Christie’s and is expected to fetch up to $16,000. . . . In New York, Christies will auction the 300-piece Paramount Collection of Hollywood costumes Wednesday. Included: the seductive black suit worn by Anne Bancroft in “The Graduate,” Ginger Rogers’ dance dress from “Lady in the Dark” and Mae West’s beaded wedding gown from “I’m No Angel.”
