Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Original screen-used Chimp, Gorilla and Orangutan background masks from Planet of the Apes. (TCF, 1968) Planet of the Apes makeup master John Chambers and his Oscar-winning team of artists realized they did not have the manpower to transform hundreds of actors into apes using their innovative and elaborate prosthetics on a daily basis. So, they created these background masks for actors and extras furthest from camera. This is a set of three (3) background masks including: (1) chimp mask, (1) gorilla mask and (1) orangutan mask. Each mask is made of slip cast latex, hand painted and finished with life-like fake fur; a velcro flap closure neatly secures the back of the mask concealed under a lace hairpiece. While Chimp and Gorilla background masks have appeared at auction before, only three orangutan masks are known to have survived. This represents the only set of all three Planet of the Apes background masks to be offered. In vintage good condition. , exhibiting some cracking in the latex. Special shipping arrangements will apply.

20th Century-fox first-unit motion picture camera used to film Planet of the Apes.

Lot 562: 20th Century-fox first-unit motion picture camera used to film Planet of the Apes.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: 20th Century-fox first-unit motion picture camera used to film Planet of the Apes. (TCF, 1968) This 20th Century-Fox camera AKA “Fox” camera is the seventh of only seventeen made. Rarely seen outside the studio that built it. The Fox camera dominated the studios output for almost 36 years. Its last film was the 1968 science fiction epic Planet of the Apes. When sound took the industry by storm in the late 1920s, studios and their existing noisy cameras were caught flat-footed. The solution for most was to put the camera in a big heavy soundproof box or “blimp”. The prime example was the popular 120lb. Mitchell BNC (1936). 20th Century–Fox took a far more modern approach in 1932. Each individual component was designed to eliminate noise and vibration at its source. The result was the first “un-blimped” 35mm motion picture camera. It weighed in at 86 lbs. ready-to-shoot.  This technological achievement was unrivaled until the introduction of the Panaflex forty years later in 1972. Planet of the Apes and TC-7 also mark the capitulation of Fox’s own Cinemascope process to Panavision. Cinemascope and its massive lenses of the 1950s cut deeply into the functionality of the camera’s original design. The coup de grace came in the late ’60s when the studio gave up the ghost and decided to embrace more modern Panavision lenses. This meant the camera had to be adapted to function like the bulky and popular Mitchell BNC (367 were made). TC-7 runs smooth and quiet with film. The focal plane shutter has been removed due to oxidation and swelling of the lead balance weight. A new “old” stock shutter is included. It was made for an 18υth but not completed camera and is in vintage fine condition. It requires balancing before installation. This can be done at cost upon buyer’s request. Special shipping instructions will apply.

Steve McQueen's signature screen-used

Lot 563: Steve McQueen's signature screen-used "Frank Bullitt" hero tweed sports jacket worn in Bullitt.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Steve McQueen’s signature screen-used “Frank Bullitt” hero tweed sports jacket worn in Bullitt. (Warner Bros., 1968) This brown herringbone tweed jacket, with suede elbow patches, was custom made for Hollywood legend Steve McQueen and worn in arguably his greatest film role — as all guts, no glory, San Francisco Police Lieutenant “Frank Bullitt”. Not only was this jacket worn in what is consistently voted as the best car chase sequence in film history — pitting “Bullitt’s” “Highland Green” 1968 Mustang GT 390 against the bad guy’s ’68 Dodge Charger — McQueen wore this jacket throughout the second half of the film. McQueen wears this distinctive jacket while on the hitman’s trail, the iconic car chase, while riding with Jacqueline Bisset in her yellow Porsche cabriolet in San Mateo, the police station, Coroner’s office and the climactic chase on foot at San Francisco International Airport where “Bullitt” finally kills the mobster and places this jacket over the dead body. The jacket was designed specifically without the charcoal-gray satin lining in the back, below the shoulder blades, to be cooler for McQueen to wear while filming in the car. In close-ups, the distinct herringbone patterns on the seams and edges of the lapels precisely screen match, serving as a fingerprint. In fine production used condition. This sports jacket is, without question, the premier 20th century male cinematic wardrobe piece, worn by star and “King of Cool” pop culture icon Steve McQueen in his best-remembered role. The motorsport tie-in and appeal is undeniable. This historic costume piece was exhibited at the Warner Bros. Studio Museum. This item is fully authenticated by the seller and a letter of authenticity will be included with the lot. Cooler than a fridge loaded with ice cubes at the North Pole.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Steve McQueen’s signed Gulf Travel Card allowing the star free fuel. Steve McQueen’ signed personal Gulf Oil Travel Card. Gulf Oil Corporation custom “Travel Card” issued to and used by Steve McQueen. Traditional plastic credit card with embossed numbers and McQueen name.

The card’s expiration date is 12/99. Front of card features a colorful illustration of a Gulf gas station and logo central in a setting of vacation and leisure time images including cars, boat, resort and jet plane. The signature strip on the flipside features Steve McQueen’s signature faded and worn from use. Gulf Oil was famous for its association with auto racing, as it sponsored the John Wyer Automotive team in the 1960s and early ‘70s. The signature light blue and orange color scheme associated with its Ford GT-40 and Porsche 917 is arguably the most famous in racing history. Much of its popularity is attributed to the fact that in the 1971 film Le Mans, Steve McQueen’s character drives for the Gulf team. Due to this corporate sponsorship arrangement, McQueen received “free Gulf gas for life anywhere in the U.S.” This item is fully authenticated by the seller and a letter of authenticity will be included with the lot.

Hero screen-used illuminating Bedknob from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

Lot 576: Hero screen-used illuminating Bedknob from Bedknobs and Broomsticks.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Hero screen-used illuminating Bedknob from Bedknobs and Broomsticks. (Walt Disney, 1971) During the 1940s blitz in WWII England, three “Rawlings” children are evacuated to a small village called Pepperinge Eye. There they meet “Miss Price” (Angela Lansbury), an apprentice witch hoping to use her magic to assist in the war effort. As a reward for keeping her secret, Miss Price casts a spell on a bedknob that young “Paul Rawlings” has removed from a brass bed in the children’s room. When re-attached, the bed will travel anywhere that Paul asks. This is the actual bedknob that is the very key to the entire story and even the film’s Bedknobs and Broomsticks title. Consisting of solid, translucent red cast resin, the 3 in. round knob has a fluted foot where the knob would connect to a bedpost. The knob has been lightly plated in metallic gold with spots created to allow a strong light source, introduced through the 2.25 in. long hole from the base of the knob, make it appear to “magically” illuminate/glow from within. In the film, the bedknob’s glow is subsidized through special effects, but this practical knob enhanced the glowing appearance. Exhibits age, production-wear and some metallic surface scratching and pitting. Overall in very good condition. The bedknob is an icon of screen FX magic, within a beloved example of Disney story-telling magic. Originally obtained from special effects coordinator Danny Lee and comes with letter of provenance.

Description: Original dancing nightgown puppet from Bedknobs and Broomsticks. (Walt Disney, 1971) In a magical (and somewhat creepy) scene in the classic, live-action fantasy Bedknobs and Broomsticks, “Miss Price’s” (Angela Lansbury) nightgown animates and dances. This is the original, screen-used marionette nightgown puppet from the film. The puppet measures 50 x 23 in. and consists of a soft sculpture of foam stuffed and with wire jointed muslin torso arms, dressed in a ruffled, cotton nightgown. The puppet is manipulated by marionette filament strings attached to a 48 in. long wooden puppeteer’s rig with a series of four 10 in. handling dowels protruding from the main rod. The foam armature is deteriorating, but the piece still maintains its shape and flexibility. The gown has mildly yellowed with age. Overall, in good condition.

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Close Encounters of the Third Kind alien effects prop. (Columbia, 1977) Stephen Spielberg made his first foray into sci-fi filmmaking with his dazzling Close Encounters of the Third Kind.

This miniature rig is composed of a 10 x 4 in. tooled aluminum plate with dozens of tiny cast resin Alien torsos, heads and arms painted black. The figures are attached to rods below, adjoining one control bar that caused them all to show movement at once. There is a bank of (9) small lights affixed behind the figures. The effect of the rig was for bright lights to cast the tiny moving aliens into silhouette and create the illusion of a large group of space visitors amassing. A clever piece of moviemaking craft and ingenuity from a landmark in Sci-Fi film. This prop is production used, good condition.
