London, July 17 : A horde of Hollywood memorabilia is set to go under the hammer, among it is the Holy Grail from 'Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade'.
A horde of Hollywood memorabilia is set to go under the hammer, among it is the Holy Grail from 'Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade'.

The Grail, which was used in the third instalment in the hit Harrison Ford franchise, is made out of gold-painted fibreglass, and it has been valued at 12,500 pounds.

The next item are the two tablets held aloft by Charlton Heston in the 1956 film The Ten Commandments, and they are expected to fetch up to 25,000 pounds.

They are among items of classic Hollywood movie memorabilia going under the hammer later this month.

Of the whole lot, the most expensive item is a model TIE fighter from the original Star Wars movie of 1977, which was used in the climactic trench dogfight against the Death Star.

Despite measuring just 18 inches high by 14 inches wide, the model is expected to fetch up to 100,000 pounds.

The other items included in the auction are Jack Nicholson's axe from The Shining, Clint Eastwood's Colt Walker pistol from The Outlaw Josey Wales and C-3PO's rubber shoes from Star Wars.

Michael J Fox's hover board from Back To The Future is set to fetch around 25,000 pounds.

The sale also has a good collection of superhero costumes, one of them being the red and blue outfit worn by Christopher Reeve in Superman and Superman II.

Even fans of late actor Heath Ledger will have something to look forward to, a coat he wore in The Patriot, which has a starting price of just 500 pounds.

While Star Trek fans will be offered 74 original scripts from the 1960s TV series and a pair of Vulcan ears from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock.

Besides those mentioned are Sir Ian McKellen's Magneto outfit from X-Men an original ray gun from sci-fi classic Forbidden Planet, Lou Ferrigno's prosthetic nose from The Incredible Hulk and a set of matching silver space suits worn by Mike Myers and Verne Troyer - aka Dr Evil and Mini-Me - in Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.

The Profiles In History auction (www.profilesinhistory.com) runs from July 31 to August 1 in California and features more than 1,000 lots.

"This sale features over 1,000 unique pieces of Hollywood history, from the silent era to modern sci-fi classics and everything in between. This incredible collection represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire some of the most important visual effects pieces ever created for modern cinema," Telegraph quoted Profiles in History president Joseph Maddelena as saying.
