Hollywood Auction 96

Auction Details

Welcome to Hollywood Auction 96.

This is an extraordinary assemblage of props, costumes, costume designs, set decoration, and other studio relics that we have scoured the globe over the past year to present to you in this monumental sale. From the silent era up through Hollywood’s Golden Age, we have artifacts spanning all the major stars and covering all genres. Of immense literary and cultural importance is Noel Langley’s handwritten first draft 86-page screenplay for The Wizard of Oz, being part of a production archive covering the creation and development of the most beloved film in cinema history.

Following is just a glimpse of the items awaiting you in these pages that left indelible marks in Hollywood history:

Greta Garbo Adrian-designed coronation cape from Queen Christina.
Irving Thalberg’s “Best Picture” Academy Award from Mutiny on the Bounty.
Groucho Marx “S. Quentin Quale” tailcoat worn in Go West.
Margaret Hamilton “Wicked Witch of the West” witch’s hat from The Wizard of Oz.

These few examples represent the tip of the iceberg of this sale, which is so incredibly broad in scope and importance that mere words can only hint at its magnitude.

Thank you for participating and good luck!
