Just a li'l something Lauren Bacall had banging around her apartment. What a striking nude! This and the rest of her belongings are already on the auction block. Can't take it with you.

Burt-Reynolds-auction-2

Burt Reynolds is broke. To satisfy over a million dollars in mortgage payments, he's auctioning off what appears to be his life's collection of memorabilia, which includes priceless stuff like his Golden Globe and People's Choice Awards, as well as cringeworthy fan art.

The oddest thing I saw was this painting of Madonna. Why he has it, I can't begin to guess, but she sure would've been a fun addition to Cannonball Run (1981).

John Hancock-Tease: Penn Badgley Comments (0)

Autograph-Penn-Badgley

When I ran a teen mag, I knew what the fuck I was doing. I could spot stars in their embryonic form from a mile away. Less hyperbolically, I was pretty good at figuring out which kids would blossom—I made good, early calls on Zac Efron, the Jonas Brothers, Hilary Duff, Jessica Simpson and lots more.

I was also on the money with Penn Badgley, who was such a cutie on a new show in 2002 called Do Over that we did an exclusive shoot with him.

When he ran in the mag, he sent me this adorable signed headshot. I can't tell you how rare it was to receive a thank-you.

Movie Madness: Biggest Poster Collection EVER Hits The Auction Block Comments (0)
  Bette Weissmuller-Tarzan-shirtless Veronicas-Lake Dempsey Back-Stage Cabiria Cameraman Mysterious-Island Chaplin Dietrich Golem Oz Valentino

Some great examples from the collection in the gallery above

If he who dies with the best toys wins, Morris Everett Jr. has decided to lose—while he's still kicking, he's decided to part with what is widely considered to be the world's best collection of movie posters, lobby cards, photos and ephemera. 

Greed

But he isn't auctioning off his 196,000 items one by one, he's unloading the entire thing in one go—if you wanna bid, you gotta bid on the whole enchilada.

Freaks

Gotta say, if I had the $5 million to ? that this will achieve, I'd pay it!

Material World Comments (0)

The big Madonna auction from Julien's Live seems to have gone well. Madonna's “Material Girl” gown, which has been altered fairly dramatically since Madonna's wearing of it 30 years ago, went for $59,375, and many non-iconic, incidental sorts of pieces like belts and blouses went for ridiculously high prices.

Veronica-MayaVeronica Maya made a boob of herself aping “Material Girl” on Italian TV last night...

Most surprising to me, the series of rather lovely Herb Ritts images (some never-seen, others seen, sold for 10 or more times their estimates. For example, a common shot of Madonna bending over, cupping her breasts, sold for $28,125—the image isn't worth a fraction of that, or shouldn't be. I don't get it?

RittsWhat about this image makes it worth $30,000???

SusanThe other big-deal entries were Madonna's A League of Their Own uniform at $31,250, Who's That Girl Tour '50s-style dress at $50,000, her  Evita ball gown at $43,750, a Desperately Seeking Susan earring at $34,375, a Susan jacket (which has been shown to be Rosanna Arquette's, not Madonna's) at an insane, Marilyn Monroe-level $257,000 and Madonna's dress from her wedding to Sean Penn, which topped out at an exciting (but anti-climactic, considering the jacket's performance) $81,250.

Tell me again how Madonna is over.
