Debbie Reynolds’ Movie Costume Collection

Posted on June 18, 2011

Darlings, today’s the day Hollywood history goes on the auction block. Legendary performer Debbie Reynolds has amassed over the  last 50 years a legendary collection of over 3,500 items of film memorabilia and she’s decided it’s time to let it all go. We’d always heard about her collection, but when the catalog became available, we were shocked both at how extensive a collection it is, and how well-preserved most of the pieces are. We’ll not give any away; just scroll down. If you’re any kind of film buff, you’ll gasp at some point.

“My lifetime dream has been to assemble and preserve the history of the Hollywood film industry. Hollywood has been an enormous part of my life as I know it has been for countless fans all over the world. This collection represents a lifetime of collecting Hollywood artifacts and this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Hollywood History for those who love the movies as much as I do.”

You can read more about it here and if you’ve got the bucks to spare, you can bid online here. But like most of us, you’ll probably have to be content to just scroll down and have your memories flooded. We hope Debbie makes a fortune on this. She deserves it for preserving such an amazing chunk of cultural history. It’s such a shame she could never get that museum idea of hers to work. Seeing all these in one space would be amazing.
