Imagine gleaning hundreds of pieces of prime movie memorabilia from such diverse sources as private collectors, studios, rental houses, and movie and set production companies! Now imagine that it was all up for grabs to the lucky bidder for such classic props as Indiana Jones’s whip from ‘The Last Crusade’ or The Joker’s suit worn by Jack Nicholson in 1989’s ‘Batman!’
This is no dream but the happy reality this September 26th at the Odeon BFI Imax Auction in London, England. Over 600 items have been collected with all of them being vigorously documented and certified as authentic. Regardless of your favorite movie genre, there should be something to make your heart flutter.
‘Star Wars,’ Ghostbusters,’ ‘Back to the Future,’ ‘Conan the Barbarian,’ and many more movies and franchises will be represented. Do not expect these items to go cheaply, even James Bond’s Royal Navy cap from 1977’s ‘The Spy Who Loved Me’ is expected to fetch between $6,500 to $9,200 and that is on the low end of this exquisite collection.Bid $50-$390,000
