Christies in London hosts a Film and Entertainment sale on Monday 5th December, with around 277 lots of props and memorabilia from film, TV and theatre – the pick of which is Audrey Hepburn and James Bond memorabilia.
For Audrey Hepburn fans, there’s the black Givenchy dress made for her for the 1961 classic, Breakfast at Tiffany’s. It’s being auctioned for charity, with an estimate of £50,000-70,000. Other items include a Hepburn cocktail dress from Charade, a costume from Sabrina and a selection of original cinema posters, photographs and autographed material.
The James Bond lots are led by a selection of guns used by Bond himself, Bond girls, villains and henchmen. These include Sean Connery’s Walther PP from Dr. No (£15,000-25,000), Pierce Brosnan’s Walther P99 from Die Another Day (£5,000-7,000) , Roger Moore’s Walther PPK from For Your Eyes Only (£8,000-£12,000) and Timothy Dalton’s WA2000 sniper rifle from The Living Daylights ( £4,000-6,000)
Other characters’ guns include Tanaka’s Gyro Jet gun from You Only Live Twice, Nick-Nack’s Derringer from The Man with the Golden Gun and Halle Berry’s Beretta Cheetah handgun and silencer from Die Another Day (£5,000–£7,000). All have now been decommissioned to UK legal requirements.
The full listing of lots isn’t yet online – we’ll keep you posted when it is.
