Massive Hollywood film auction brings in millions

One of the largest movie prop auctions in a while was just held out in good ol’ Los Angeles last week.   It was chock full of movie items you know and love from as far back as the 60’s.  There were over 500 items listed, many didn’t sell.  Mostly clothing.   But I went through and culled my particular favorites to share.  Just for the fun of reminiscing.
