Cash in the garret

A guest post from Gail Renard, Chair of the TV Committee

Are you sitting on a fortune? On December 4th, Christie’s is having its “Popular Culture and Entertainment” sale and is looking for items to auction. As someone who’s recently been lucky at auction myself, I’d urge you to check if you have any hidden show biz gems.

Christie’s are looking for items relating to 20th century icons or from classic Hollywood films or genres. Pieces they already have for auction include a selection of costumes from The Sopranos; personal wardrobe from Marilyn Monroe; tuxedo trousers worn by James Dean in Giant; and Batman and James Bond collectibles, including a replica of the Golden Gun.

They also have items from Star Wars and Harry Potter; as well as a collection of vintage portrait photographs of Marlene Dietrich. (The photo shown is by Eugene Robert Richee, from the Paramount 1933 film, Song Of Songs, estimate £1200 - £1600.)

The deadline for pieces is October 10th. If you’ve memorabilia you might like to auction, contact:
