Star Trek, Jurassic Park memorabilia up for grabs at Hollywood history auction
London: From ‘Star Trek’ to ‘The Ten Commandments,’ some of the most iconic props in Hollywood history are expected to be put up for auction in California this month.
Memorabilia from dozens of films, including a full-scale alien from the ‘Aliens’ films and dinosaurs from ‘Jurassic Park,’ will be sold at ‘The Hollywood Auction’ on December 15, the Daily Mail reported.
Included in the sale is James Bond’s suit, as worn by Pierce Brosnan in ‘The World is Not Enough,’ and the tunic (and ears) worn by Spock in ‘Star Trek: The Motion Picture,’ which is boldly expected to go for more than 75,000 pounds.
The iconic Spock tunic was worn by Leonard Nimoy in ‘Star Trek’ as the mixed human-Vulcan first officer.
Complete with original rank braiding on the sleeves, the piece has been locked away since 1968 - but the colour is still as vibrant as ever.
It was won by a viewer who entered a competition to design a costume for the cult Paramount TV show and has been kept by them ever since.
Also up for auction are The Tablets of Stone used by Charlton Heston when he played Moses in the 1956 film, ‘The Ten Commandments.’
The tablets come with a letter of authenticity from the creator, Paramount Studios scenic artist A.J. Ciraolo.
He made the tablets to be slightly irregular with craters so they appeared to be carved with God’s “fire bolts.”
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 and Wesson Hand Ejector Mk II, and was used through the majority of filming in Tunisia.
Science fiction enthusiasts will have the opportunity to purchase the full alien warrior creature costume from ‘Aliens’ for 75,000 pounds.
Film fanatics can also leave with a selection of models and motion puppets used in ‘Jurassic Park.’
Six models are on offer: a Tyrannosaurus rex, a Velociraptor, a Dilophosaurus, a Triceratops, a Gallimimus and a Compsognathus.
The highly-detailed and finely painted puppets range in value from 1,500 pounds to 5,000 pounds.
