If you had the mind, money & inclination to buy a piece of movie memorabilia, what (if anything) would take your fancy?

Asked by ucme (45781points) June 9th, 2011

Noticed these are up for auction soon & it got me wondering about you lot….yes way! What would you like from a movie or indeed a tv show if your bank balance didn’t scream out in pain too much?

Lebowski’s rug. It would really tie the room together. I’m sure the nihilist urine will wash out.

@lucillelucillelucille Just as long as you have ”a room somewhere!” ;¬}

The cars that weren’t—Chitty-Chitty-Bang-Bang. Or any cars from the “Fifth Element”, maybe Lotus S-1 sub-car of James Bond.

Groucho Marx’ cigars.

I’d buy an antique carriage or stage coach from one of the western movies.
I have had horses in my life, but, always wanted to learn how to drive a team or at the very least a pony cart. lol

In the original Star Trek series the walls of the hallways were intermittently decorated with big plastic wall hangings that looked kind of like plumbing pipes intended to look like some highly integrated part of the ships vital systems. I wouldn’t mind having one of those to hang in my office.

If it was in a Cher or Barbra Streisand movie then I want it. They may have touched it with their own, bare hands you know.

The ranch house from the original Parent Trap. It’s Real Estate porn. Makes me sigh with delight.

@Blueroses – Well, as long as we are including (pornographic) real estate, put me down for the lair of Dr. No

The Darth Vader suit. I would wear it everywhere; I would wear it to the opera, I would wear it grocery shopping.

@Leanne1986 Somewhere in my link there’s a reference to Streisand’s dress that she wore in Hello Dolly. Apparently it was the most expensive dress ever to be made for a movie. I found that hard to believe, but there you have it :¬)

Either a pulse rifle from the movie Aliens, or Indiana Jones’s whip

I would like to have some of the wall panels from one of those pyramid ships in SG1 to panel the walls of my house.

@Tropical_Willie You missed your chance with the Chitty Chitty Bang Bang automobile. It went up for sale last month during an auction. One source

Tropical_Willie's avatar

I didn’t have the “jingle” to make the auction.
2 million is 1.9999999 million more than I have in “Car Account”.

I’d buy the coconuts from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
