Rare Hollywood memorabilia including props from blockbusters Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Mission: Impossible III are to go up for auction next month.
Bosses at Premier Props are opening up their vaults for a high-profile sale, which will include the enormous truck featured in Sacha Baron Cohen’s comedy Bruno, Lori Petty’s goggles from Tank Girl, and Larry Hagman’s personal mobile dressing room from the set of Dallas.
Ryan Gosling’s motorcycle from The Place Beyond The Pines, a throne from 1956 epic The Ten Commandments, and costumes from Hugh Jackman and Jake Gyllenhaal’s new crime drama Prisoners are also on sale, along with stunt guns used in Mr. and Mrs. Smith and Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible sequel.
The auction will feature more than 1,000 movie props and outfits and will take place in El Segundo, California on September 28.
Star Trek fans have the opportunity to get their hands on a piece of sci-fi history as a prosthetic ear worn by Leonard Nimoy as Spock goes under the hammer.
The veteran actor wore the distinctive pointed ear to play his most famous character in the 1979 film StarTrek: The Motion Picture.
The iconic memento has been carefully preserved for more than 30 years and is now set to be sold off at an auction of Hollywood memorabilia next month (Apr11).
Dan Levin, a spokesman for Premier Props, the company behind the sale, says, “This ear was kept by the prop master from the film. It was carefully wrapped up which is important because silicone latex can deteriorate.
“Spock’s ears are an iconic part of Star Trek and fans across the world would love to own it – we’ve already had lots of bids.”
The auction will take place in Los Angeles on 2 April (11).
News of the sale emerged on Saturday (26Mar11) – the day of Nimoy’s 80th birthday.
