Props From "Top Gun" And "Pretty Woman" Are Up For Auction
More than 900 pieces of movie and TV memorabilia will be offered during this auction, which are collectively expected to bring in over £4.4 million (around $5.6 million).
The black boots worn by Julia Roberts in the classic romantic comedy "Pretty Woman" are estimated to fetch between £10,000 and £15,000 ($13,000 to $19,000), while Pete “Maverick” Mitchell's bomber jacket could sell for up to £16,000 ($21,000).
Also going under the hammer at Prop Store are the fedora worn by Jack Nicholson's character Joker in Tim Burton's "Batman" and the red leather jacket used by Brad Pitt in the 1989 movie "Fight Club." Both items are estimated to nab between £20,000 and £30,000 ($26,000 to $38,000) when they hit the auction block.
While the auction also includes pieces from "Skyfall," "Saving Private Ryan," "The Hunger Games" and "The Dark Knight," the lot with the highest anticipated sale price comes from George Lucas's "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith."
The Hero Lightsaber used by Ewan McGregor's character Obi-Wan Kenobi in the 2005 blockbuster is expected to fetch between £80,000 and £120,000 ($103,000 to $155,000).
Movie enthusiasts on a tight budget will have the opportunity to bid for items such as the beanie hat worn by Will Smith in "Bad Boys II" and Billy Mack's snakeskin suit from "Love Actually," which are both estimated at £400 ($510).
The seventh edition of Prop Store's Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction will be live-streamed from London on December 1 and 2, with bids either placed over the phone or online.
