Movie Memorabilia Cheap

For as little as a $1, people could get a three metre model of a World War II American B-17 bomber when Warner Bros Movie World holds a no-reserve silent auction on Friday.

More than 100 items are up for grabs and could make the perfect Christmas present.

Many of the items are no longer needed around the park and some may be of sentimental – and possibly monetary – value.

A 1997 Pontiac sedan with a possibly Mel Gibson-sized hole in the windshield or airplane models that featured in fight scenes from the 1990 movie Memphis Belle are the auction’s obvious Hollywood stars.

Another highlight is a vehicle rigged to flip up in the air used during the park’s highly popular Police Academy Stunt Show.

The vehicle has low mileage but be aware it has exploded into the air nearly 100,000 times.

More for car enthusiasts is a 1961 Cadillac De Ville convertible, which could be worth up to $100,000 if fully restored.

There’s also an outdoor toilet from the Police Academy show, a jeep complete with steel GI helmet and one of the futuristic police vehicles used in Sylvester Stallone’s Demolition Man film.

Movie World general manager Dianne Rigg says items such as the Memphis Belle models are becoming harder to acquire as movies shift towards computer-generated props and sets.

“We continue to get pieces from overseas … and we’ll always do that but I think some of the key things like the B-17 Liberators, those types of pieces won’t be seen anymore because of CGI,” Ms Rigg told reporters.

The auction will be open to the public on Saturday from 8am to 4pm AEST. More details can be found at
