Break out your chequebook and get ready to explain to your kids why they're not going to university anymore, Julien's Auction House is currently running its "Hollywood Legends 2013" live auction in Beverly Hills. In addition to a creep-ton of clothing once worn by now-deceased actress Brittany Murphy, many classic props from some of Hollywood's biggest films are up for bidding right now. Props like Captain Kirk's one-of-a-kind Phaser Rifle used in the retooled series pilot, which is estimated to go for £30,000 to £50,000. Ouch.
In Alien, after the Xernomorph blows through the guy's chest and runs off, the crew splits up to look for it. Sigourney Weaver walks past this static rover prop just before Harry Dean Stanton gets eaten. As Julien's explains,
The static prop buggy is made primarily of wood on a custom frame made by welding a centre support to front and rear suspension mounts for the tires. The intricate detailing is made of wood, metal, electrical components, camera parts, and more. The entire unit was gold painted, then detail painting was added for highlight and colour.
Bruce Lee's lightweight (and lightning fast) demonstration nunchucks as well the infamous "Claw Hand" from Enter the Dragon are both up for bid.
Remember that brutal scene in Castaway when Tom Hanks knocks out his rotten tooth with an ice skate and makes a necklace out of the resulting carnage? This is that skate and tooth, both of which have likely been in Tom Hank's mouth, which can only increase the value.
The Black Beauty, quite literally the only redeeming part of the slow-motion shit storm that was 2011's The Green Hornet, is looking for a good home. Roll-out rockets not included.
For just a grand-odd, you can look like the drug-induced hallucinations of a middle aged burnout! The Pin Girl Dress includes the dress, headdress, and shoes.
