DALLAS (AP) - Although rain couldn't stop Gene Kelly from singing and dancing, an ice storm has postponed the auction of the Hollywood star's gray wool suit.

Heritage Auctions spokesman Noah Fleisher says accumulated ice cut the power to the auction house, so there's no way the suit Kelly wore as he joyously danced in a downpour in "Singin' in the Rain" can be auctioned as scheduled Friday.

Fleisher says the auction has been rescheduled for Thursday.

Heritage expects the suit to sell for more than $20,000.

Memorabilia collector Gerald Sola has owned the suit for more than four decades. He bought it for $10 at a 1970 sale of MGM props and wardrobe items.
