Once again, Propstore’s Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction makes its yearly trip to London this November 9– 12. The UK team will be presenting just under 1,800 treasures from film, TV, and music – with a total value of over £12 million! Last year’s auction saw Andy Dufresne’s (Tim Robbins) Screen-matched Rockhammer Bible from Frank Darabont’s classic The Shawshank Redemption (1994) sell for £387,500, and this year’s auction is set to be even bigger and better! So, read on and take a look at 9 of our featured picks…
From the personal collection of Anthony Daniels, which features over 160 lots from the career of the Star Wars actor. Take a look at the rest of the Anthony Daniels Collection here.
The hand-sculpted dents in the helmet have allowed Propstore specialists to positively screen-match this iconic piece to the medal ceremony in the film’s finale. A symbol of the Star Wars franchise and a true rarity, this is a fascinating piece that is coming to auction.
Created by master whip maker David Morgan, Indy’s bullwhip has become a signature for the character, with Ford famously whipping a sword from a Thuggee cultist in a single take. This lot is one of the longer whips created for the film, sitting at nearly 13 feet in length – and comes complete with an autograph from Harrison Ford himself, along with a signed LOA and photograph.
From the striking scene in Blade Runner in which Rick Deckard (Harrison Ford) shoots replicant Zhora Salome, Propstore is pleased to present this costume display of the character, played by Joanna Cassidy. It features a body suit worn by Cassidy when her blood squibs burst, a black leather brassiere, PVC raincoat, and her spiked leg guards. This lot comes from the Geoff Hutchins Collection, which is the largest collection of Blade Runner memorabilia to come to auction. Take a look at all of the items here.
The only metal hero glove created for Freddy Krueger in A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) is a symbol of one of the most iconic horror villains of all time. Details in the welding on the metal armature screen-match to a close-up of Kruger scraping his blades across a pipe as he corners Nancy in the Boiler Room.
A cornerstone of the Western genre, wardrobe from The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly never usually comes to market. This first-time offering of Angel Eye’s (Lee Van Cleef) archetypal black bolero hat is a hugely sought-after piece of cinema history. The hat is accompanied by a black-and-white photograph of Van Cleef smoking a pipe, which has been inscribed by the actor with “to my friends for life, love Lee Van Cleef”. The lot also comes with copies of photographs of Van Cleef and the consignor’s family featuring the hat.
From one iconic hat to another, we have this fantastic newsboy-style cap from hit show Peaky Blinders. Within the series, Shelby (played by Cillian Murphy) and his gang wore caps like this with razor blades sewn into the brim, giving the show its name. The cap has an interior tag signed by Murphy and a signed LOA.
The First Avenger’s first outing in 2011 saw Chris Evans as the star-spangled superhero, wielding his instantly recognisable vibranium shield as both a defensive tool and a weapon. This shield has been expertly distressed to reflect combat use and is consistent with markings seen on the shield in the early second half of the film, and in the climactic scene on Red Skull’s aircraft.
Wearing his ceremonial arena costume for the final duel of the film, Joaquin Phoenix’s Commodus is considered one of the best villains in cinema of the new millennia. Designer Janty Yates had the leather armour painted off-white to look like marble “based on Ridley Scott’s thought that Commodus was trying to echo the statuary of his predecessors”. Those wanting even more Gladiatorial action can check out Maximus’ Arena Costume here.
Winning 11 Academy Awards ®, Titanic is one of the rare films that not only impressed critics but captured the hearts of cinemagoers all over the world upon its release in 1997. Part of the film’s appeal was the doomed romance between Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) and Jack Dawson (Leonardo DiCaprio) – who wore his signature costume throughout the film.
Join us on November 9 – 12, 2023, when just under 1,800 lots of rare film and TV memorabilia will go under the hammer in our four-day live auction. And remember to get those bids in early if you want a shot at picking up some incredible pieces of entertainment history.
