A collection of draft scripts for "The Wizard of Oz" and other material from the archives of the 1939 film are going up for auction in December and could fetch up to $1.2 million.

Los Angeles auctioneers Profiles in History said on Thursday four handwritten draft screenplays by Noel Langley were being sold.

Langley, who died in 1980, was one of about a dozen screenwriters who worked on the big screen adaptation of L. Frank Baum's children's book that catapulted Judy Garland to fame and became an enduring movie classic.

Some 16 photos of special effects, including the tornado sequence that transports Garland's Dorothy from Kansas to the magical land of Oz, will be included in the single lot.
