The Independent has the details on the rest of the auction, which sounds like a very cool batch of stuff that will soon be bought by rich folks who saw a movie once. In addition to “Star Wars,” other major items from Lucasfilm history will be up for auction, including one of the shirts worn by Harrison Ford in the Indiana Jones franchise and, more importantly, one of Indy’s trademark bullwhips. And if you’re in the market for more movie weapons wielded by our favorite heroes, Steve Rogers’ shield from “Captain America: The First Avenger” will also hit the block. Those wanting a less-righteous weapon should keep their eyes peeled for the razor-fingered glove worn by Robert Englund in the original 1984 “A Nightmare on Elm Street.”
Naturally, each of these is expected to sell for more than anyone reading this makes in a year. Insert the “Curb Your Enthusiasm” theme here!
Look, I’m not saying I should be the person to own the shirt Leonardo DiCaprio wore in “Titanic,” which is expected to fetch £100,000-200,000 at this auction. But maybe I’m suggesting that it would be neat for these incredible objects to end up in museums dedicated to art and pop culture rather than some rich dude’s house. I don’t know! I’m just a member of the poor, unwashed masses!
The auction for this treasure trove of movie props will begin on November 9, 2023, and run through November 12. If you’re rich enough to join in, you probably have someone who can set up the details for you.
