Movie Memorabilia

Bird is the Word

Let’s say you happen to have $4m burning a hole in your pocket. Let’s also say you’ve got a lifelong love of The Maltese Falcon. A little schnapps here, a little bidding there, and suddenly you find yourself in the possession of The Maltese Falcon’s Maltese Falcon. What do you do with it? Well, some anonymous soul has just landed in that very situation (minus the schnapps). The Maltese Falcon was auctioned off for the low, low price of $4m and change to some exorbitantly wealthy Humphrey Bogart fan. As we all contemplate the truly astronomical sum that purchased a single movie prop, note that its price tag, while certainly not cheap, is not the heftiest ever paid for a piece of movie memorabilia. Sean Connery’s Goldfinger Aston Martin went for just a smidge higher – $4.1m – while the original Adam West Batmobile went for $4.6m. Nor was it entirely a personal purchase, as a chunk of those millions (how big a chunk, we don’t know) went towards the charity Film Foundation, which works to preserve movie history.



It seems like a no-brainer: putting the movie memorabilia in the same place as the movies.



The geek in me realized that if I got this, I would only be a Delorean away from having a working-fake time machine.

All addicts have their favorite hook-ups. Movie addicts aren’t much different. They all have a movie store they go to, sometimes on a weekly basis, where they blow their paychecks on DVDs, posters and other assorted paraphernalia.


It seems like it is Crazy-Awesome Contest Week here at FSR! First Sweeney Todd, now Balls of Fury!


A long-time reader of the site pointed me in the direction of a company Mimoco that produces designer USB flash drives, and their new line is something that can only be described as being “From a Galaxy far, far away.”
