Profiles in History

The auction, known as Drama, Action, Romance: The Hollywood Auction, will take place on December 15 in California.
Quote:
Indiana Jones fanatics can purchase the gun used by Harrison Ford in Raiders of The Lost Ark for 50,000 pounds.

The six-shot revolver is an original film-modified Smith & Wesson Hand Ejector Mk II and was used through the majority of filming in Tunisia.

Ford used the weapon in the shoot-out at the Raven bar - one of the most memorable scenes in the movie.

It is one of only two pistols that exist today that were used by Ford in the production of the film.

From the mailbag:

The Wings Over The Rockies Air & Space Museum where Star Wars Celebration I was held currently has a silent auction online. Harrison Ford has been pretty supportive of the museum, and the auction features 3 Raiders items signed by him: A poster, a Blu Ray Set, and a book (items 230-232). The prices are currently $35-$175.






And in the live auction:
Quote:
Meet famous actor and pilot Harrison Ford at his personal hangar in Santa Monica, California for a tour of his unique aircraft collection and lunch. Round-trip air transportation for two from Denver to Los Angeles at a mutually convenient date in 2013. Join Harrison for a local flight in one of his aircraft to see LA and California beaches. Depending on weather, aircraft availability and timing, enjoy lunch with Harrison at his hangar or “fly out” to a lunch location. The top box office actor in history is an outstanding pilot who will share his passion with two fortunate winners of this once-in-a-lifetime experience.

the new profiles in history auction (as seen on the syfy channel) is auctioning off Indiana Jones hat that he wore on the ship in the beginning of last crusade, it was used when the hat got wet and a stunt double saved the hat from the water tank , the hat is in a much more flatter mode , but can be reshaped back into the hero mode , (that was stated by the catalog). they also have have Indiana Jones bullwhip from temple of doom. both start out at 10,000 dollars to 15,000 dollars.
they also have frank darabont's young Indiana Jones chronicles crew jacket which starts at 400-600dollars and a khyber bowie knife ( i think that's the one that was sold in the 90's ) that was signed by george lucas to darabont each starts at 200-300 dollars , the auctions starts july 28th and 29th .

Old Bonhams auctions had some nice documents, of interest if only for pricing.

Raiders scripts:

Man, if only it was tax season right now and I didn't have bigger fish to fry, maybe one of those scripts could realistically be mine. That's one advantage (and simultaneous disadvantage) to being momentarily single. You get to have crazy lapses in judgement and spend top dollar on essentially useless pieces of paper.

Although, had Raiders not yet been made, those scripts could accurately be deemed PRICELESS!

Too bad much of those auction items are for just paper collectibles, albeit "sacred" paper! LOL!

However, I'd be lying if I said that S&W Mk II didn't get my pulse racing a bit. That is definitely one of the greatest key Indy props IMO!

There are better ways to spend that kinda money, including benevolent charities, which I would hope some of these auction proceeds could possibly go to, but one can dream of getting the opportunity to Hahaha!

Although I would rather have Young Indy's house in Utah that was sold a few years back.

Here's a heretofore unknown 4th draft of Radiers, which sold with other goodies this month. The fifth draft soon followed. Notice even at the big auction houses you can't trust the page number claims, they're almost certainly looking at the last scene number.

Great Wired article, though not Indy related.

In the world of vintage collectables, there’s always a marquee brand that demands insane prices. In the sci-fi prop world, that brand is Star Wars. The prices for production artifacts with a Lucasfilm provenance make a mockery of presale estimates.

Well, we might finally have an answer to that question.

It seems that a veritable treasure trove of Hollywood collectibles are going up for auction at the end of September by the Prop Store. I haven't gone through the complete list yet, but you can buy Sam Jackson's Bad Ass Mofo wallet from Pulp Fiction and a bullwhip from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Hope you got some money, though. The bullwhip is starting at ~$32,000 and the wallet is asking for ~$12,000. Both will probably go over asking price. A lot of the items are viewable to our European brethren at London's Odean BFI IMAX. Can't be in London for the physical auction on the 26th of September? No worries! You can bid online or over the phone!

Wired has a blurb about the auction over here. There isn't much else to say, but they do have a nice sample of pictures including said bullwhip and Data's trench coat from The Goonies!

I'll see you at Bring Cash Alley.

The full list for those well heeled members is available over here.


The search form seems kind of wonky. I've put in 'Indiana Jones', 'Indy', and 'Jones' and gotten different results. Or, rather, incomplete results. This seems to have offered the best results: Indiana. That one includes the voodoo doll from Temple of Doom as well as the full-sized(!?) bi-plane from The Last Crusade and The Mummy. There's a production script and a pair of crew screening passes from Raiders of the Lost Ark too.

Stop reading now! Go remortgage the house and start bidding!

Yeah I would if I had any money at all but this kind of stuff will get real expensive real fast. I think the only thing Indy related from the movies I ever tried to bid on was a Indy Crew jacket from Raiders that went for 200 on prosper like an year ago and i decided that was too much for me.

The Prop Store Temple of Doom script has blue April revision pages, while the yellow March pages they replaced are kept nearby. Very nice of someone, but there's probably nothing not included in the two scripts on the main site.

Asking: $1350 - $2025. September 26.

Collecting experiences - how to police the bad apples?

The stuff on Prop Store is really amazing, and they seem to be one of the few places of movie memorabilia that's truly legit.

eBay is a dangerous place, and I know from personal experience about some dubious and downright lying Indiana Jones collectors. I'm sure they're just a few spoiled apples out of a very large barrel, but I just wish there was a way to police those sellers.

What is everyone's experience with Throw Me The Idol, The Collectors Covenant, or I Hate Snakes? Are there any that are considered more reputable than others? I'm pretty new to collecting, and had bad experiences with eBay sellers in the past.

Bonhams

Merged two auction threads of equal size.

Checking out some old Bonhams lots:
Three Raiders of the Lost Ark advertising artwork concepts
I could probably draw better than this.
A group of original press kits from the three "Indiana Jones" films
Probably nothing earth shattering inside, but need to get some scanned someday.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: two revised scripts and call sheets
I do like their large images and how their links don't expire.
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: 5 storyboards
Some items apparently didn't sell. Maybe a deal was made later.
Unit lists for 'Indiana Jones & The Temple Of Death' and 'Greystoke'
Five quid! There are still deals to be found.
