Movie memorabilia goes under the hammer at Premiere Props

The results are in for Premiere Props’ Hollywood Auction Extravaganza II sale held on Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st July. Please note that these prices do not include the Buyers Premium of 23% that is added to the final sale price.

The results for the music-related lots mentioned in my previous post are as follows:

• A signed colour photo from a vintage celebrity magazine of Frank Sinatra, estimated at $50-100, sold for $150
• A hand written note by Johnny Cash, estimated at $1,800-2,200, was passed
• Original sound equipment and cases labelled ‘The Doors’, estimated at $3,800-4,200, was also passed

The results for the movie-related lots mentioned in my previous post are as follows:

• An original publicity still of Boris Karloff, estimated at $50-100, sold for $150
• An original hand drawn design sketch of Kiefer Sutherland’s vampire make up from The Lost Boys, estimated at $150-250, sold for $150
• A life size ‘creature’ from The Village, estimated at $2,400-2,600, sold for $2,100
• A life size replica figure of Charlton Heston in Planet of the Apes, estimated at $2,300-2,600, sold for $2,100
• A screen worn costume worn by Keira Knightley in King Arthur, estimated at $50-100, sold for $1,000
• A life size figure of Agent Smith in the Matrix films, estimated at $900-1,100, sold for $1,000
• A stunt cutlass used by Orlando Bloom in Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest and Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, estimated at $2,800-3,200, sold for $4,100

Items of note from the sale that reached very high figures include:

• Ringo Starr’s 1968 Ford Mustang in candy apple red, estimated at $15,000-17,000, sold for $35,000
• Storyboards from 1980’s Flash Gordon, estimated at $50-100, sold for $2,250
• A production used and modified umbrella for the Penguin from the ‘Batman’ TV series (1966-1968), estimated at $50-100, sold for $4,400
• A cowboy hat worn by Robert Redford as the Sundance Kid, estimated at $400-400, sold for $2,900
• Jack Lord’s screen used stunt gun and badge from ‘Hawaii 5-0’ (1968-1980), estimated at $50-100, sold for $8,500
• An original painting owned by Forrest J. Ackerman of Marlene Dietrich, estimated at $200-300, sold for $1,300

A rather disappointing lot was Lot 974, one of the sets of tablets from 1956’s The Ten Commandments. Arguably one of the most iconic props in film history, the lot sold for $16,000 against a pre-sale estimate of $28,000-34,000. Still, $16,000 is not bad for two pieces of wood, covered in resin and painted to look like red granite!
