In 1972 my grandma, Debbie Reynolds, formed the Hollywood Motion Picture Museum, a 501c3 nonprofit corporation, containing the largest collection of Hollywood movie memorabilia in the world. She assembled this collection from all the major studios over the last thirty years & is considered one of the most knowledgeable collectors in the field. The Collection includes almost every Academy Award winning film and star from the Silent Era forward through the late 1970′s.
The collection is so large and comprehensive that the public auction of it has been in progress over the last 2 years, ending with part II of the auction tomorrow in Beverly Hills, which will feature over 430 lots altogether including four Marilyn Monroe costumes from Gentlemen Prefer Blonds, Bus Stop, Niagara & Let’s Make Love. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to purchase pieces of priceless Hollywood History. The breakup of this amazing collection will surely be remembered as one of the greatest tragedies in American film history, but we are hopeful that these one of a kind pieces will be purchased by those passionate about preserving them as my grandma did for so many years.
