Anthony Daniels Collection: Screen-matched Light-up
C-3PO (Anthony Daniels) Head 
Est. $500,000 – $1,000,000

From the second and final part of the Anthony Daniels Collection, this Light-up C-3PO Head screen matches to several of the scenes on Endor through distinct markings on the right side of C-3PO’s outer perimeter ring. As the sole complete C-3PO head from the film in private hands, it’s a rare gem directly from Daniels’ collection.

Lot 86
“Captain America” Wyatt’s (Peter Fonda) Panhead Chopper Motorcycle 
Est. $200,000 – $400,000

Easy Rider, an emblematic counterculture film of the 1960s, garnered two Academy Award® nominations, a Cannes Film Festival award for Best First Work, and a place in the Library of Congress’ National Film Registry for its cultural influence. In the climactic finale scene, shotgun-wielding yokels attacked Wyatt and Billy (Hopper), crashing Wyatt’s signature American flag-patterned motorcycle and ending their freewheelin’ ride to New Orleans. This is the crashed motorcycle used for the scene, and was restored to its current state after filming finished. Believed to be the sole remaining Captain America Chopper from the film, this is a must for anyone with a love for motorbikes and movies.

Lot 116
Vito Corleone’s (Robert De Niro) Screen-Matched and Photo-Matched Pea Coat
Est. $20,000 – $40,000

The young Vito wore his signature pea coat in several key flashbacks to his early years in New York during the late 1910s, including when he helped steal an expensive rug after losing his job in a grocery store. Distinctive creases on the right chest pocket and left sleeve screen match to when Corleone took his coat off in his apartment, while patterning on the tortoiseshell-patterned buttons and wear on the left lapel of this coat match it to set photographs from the production. Worn by Robert De Niro in a role that cemented him as a superstar, this is a fantastic piece of movie history.

Lot 156
James Bond’s (Sean Connery) Screen-Matched Costume
Est. $40,000 – $80,000

It is rare for examples of Sean Connery suits to go under the hammer, with the actor keeping many of his costumes under the approval of Albert “Cubby” Broccoli. This lot was initially obtained by a crew member from a set costume sale when production wrapped. A distinctive pinch in the jacket’s left shoulder screen matches to the moment Bond met sumo wrestler Sadanoyama Shinmatsu, making this rare find even more highly sought after.

Lot 293
SABRINA (1954)
Sabrina Fairchild’s (Audrey Hepburn) Screen-Matched Embroidered Silk-Organza Gown
Est. $100,000 – $200,000

An icon of Hollywood glamour – few pieces would serve as such a perfect symbol of Hepburn’s grace and sophistication as this embroidered silk-organza gown worn by the actress in Sabrina. Inspired by Givenchy, and winning Edith Head the Academy Award® for Best Costume Design, this dress was seen as the height of fashion. Used in publicity pictures seen across the world, the dress screen matches via the pattern of the dress, specifically in the way the pattern cuts off along the top and the left princess seam.

Lot 346
Captain Picard’s (Patrick Stewart) Screen-Matched Light-Up Command Chair
Est. $50,000 – $100,000

The centerpiece of Enterprise-D’s bridge, Picard sat in his chair whilst commanding his faithful crew as they explored the Alpha and Beta quadrants of the Milky Way. Creases in the headrest and paint markings on the left arm and seat of this chair screen match it to multiple episodes in Seasons 6 and 7. So, if you would like to feel like Captain Picard, bid now and make it so!

Lot 148
Indiana Jones’ Screen-Matched Stunt Leather Jacket
Est. $200,000 – $400,000

Indiana Jones’ leather jacket is a signature part of his outfit and a look instantly recognizable to film fans around the globe. Believed to be the only genuine, screen-matched Indiana Jones jacket ever made available at public auction – this represents a rare opportunity for collectors to obtain a piece of film history. This jacket was custom-made specifically for use by Vic Armstrong, Harrison Ford’s primary stunt double, in the second installment of the Indiana Jones series. Armstrong was previously one of Ford’s doubles on Raiders of the Lost Ark and he later returned for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. He is widely known for his work on the Indiana Jones films and published a book on his career entitled “The True Adventures of the World’s Greatest Stuntman” where he recounts playing James Bond, Superman, and more.

Lot 16
Marty McFly’s (Michael J. Fox) Screen-Matched Erlewine Hondo Chiquita Guitar
Est. $100,000 – $200,000

This distinctive Erlewine Chiquita travel guitar – the one and only example used during production – was personally selected by Zemeckis for one of the most memorabal scenes in film history. It screen matches to the first shot of McFly as he plugs the guitar into an amp in Doc Brown’s lab, before strumming it with a metal pick and blowing the speaker. As the highest grossing film of 1985, Back to the Future remains a popular cinematic touchstone with an extensive cultural legacy, and a favourite for collectors everywhere.

Lot 120
Adenoid Hynkel’s (Charlie Chaplin) Dress Uniform Jacket
Est. $20,000 – $40,000

Charlie Chaplin, known primarily as a silent movie star, took his first step into the realm of “Talkies” with The Great Dictator, where he delivered one of the most poignant speeches in film history. Hynkel wears his dress uniform throughout the film, and the jacket features a Western Costume Co. label hand-marked for “Chas Chaplin” “No. 24457 # 6-A” “Chest: 37 1/2” in black ink. A significant piece for any collector interested in early cinema and vintage Hollywood.

Lot 205
Gimli’s (John Rhys-Davies) Double-headed Axe
Est. $100,000 – $200,000

The distinctive double-headed axe wielded by Gimli in the 17-time Academy Award winning Lord of The Rings trilogy. Famously, forced perspective was used when shooting the films to create the illusion of differing fantastical heights between cast members – meaning some props are larger or smaller than they would be in real life. This weapon is scaled to the size of actor John Rhys-Davies – whilst another version would have been scaled differently for one of the shorter performers used in long shots to create the appearance of Gimli’s smaller stature within the Fellowship.
