Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade

Lot # 371 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Robert Watts Collection: Production-Used Clapperboard

Stock #106335

A production-used clapperboard from the production of Steven Spielberg's action-adventure sequel Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. This item comes from the personal collection of producer Robert Watts. The wooden clapperboard displays white painted text, including the production's working title "Indy III", the name of director Steven Spielberg and the director of photography Douglas Slocombe. Multiple lines have been painted on it to create fields for slate, take and date. "Vistavision" and "23rd July 88, Interior" have been handwritten in black on two strips of adhesive canvas tape. The back of the board features additional strips of tape, creating five filled-in sections titled lens, distance, stop, height and angle.

The clapperboard exhibits wear, including corrosion on the metal hinge, scratched surfaces and evidence of chalk marks. Several marks are present on the lot and the edges of the tape have begun to peel away in the bottom-right corner. Dimensions: 1.5 cm x 38 cm x 35 cm (3/4" x 15" x 13 3/4")

£4,000 - 6,000 M
