Debbie Reynolds: The Auction, Part II

Auction Details

Welcome to the Debbie Reynolds: The Auction, Part II! This sale features over 400 additional treasures from Debbie Reynolds's one-of-a-kind collection, covering the full spectrum of cinema from the dawn of Hollywood film production, the golden age of Hollywood's extravagant historical costume epics, through some of the latest blockbusters.

The sale highlights four Marilyn Monroe screen-worn costumes, including her iconic green and black sequined leotard from Bus Stop, a light aqua suit from Niagara, a strapless pale green silk gown from Let's Make Love and her aubergine gray evening dress and Bolero jacket from Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.

A number of important motion picture cameras are offered, including two notable historic cameras. The sale begins with Charlie Chaplin's Bell & Howell Model 2709 serial number 227. This special camera was purchased by Chaplin himself, one of the few Bell & Howell 2709s owned by an individual, and was likely used to shoot some of his most important work including The Kid (1921) and The Gold Rush (1924). Also featured is the Panavision PSR 35mm with matching serial numbers used by George Lucas for principal filming of Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope. This is one of only a handful of privately owned Panavision cameras.

In addition to the camera offerings, we are proud to present Orson Welles's RKO two-man camera crane used on the set of his first two iconic and seminal films, Citizen Kane (1941) and The Magnificent Ambersons (1942). It was from the chair perched on the front that Welles's vision took shape and the signature camera angles were achieved.

Other highlights include Hedy Lamarr's elaborate Indochinese costume designed by Adrian from Lady of the Tropics, a pair of Barbra Streisand costumes from Funny Girl, Judy Garland's ivory satin wedding dress from The Pirate, Betty Grable's blue and black beaded dance costume from My Blue Heaven, Ava Gardner's period gown designed by Walter Plunkett from Show Boat and many others.

We hope you find something new and exciting in these treasured pieces of Hollywood history from Debbie Reynolds's collection.
