“Master of Disaster’s” Rare Movie Props, Artwork, Production Material & More from His Classic Films and Television Series


Los Angeles, CA– (May 21st, 2024) – Julien’s Auctions and Turner Classic Movies (TCM), the ultimate destination for Hollywood memorabilia auctions, are kicking off the big summer blockbuster season with a marquee lineup of film and fandom’s greatest screen gems coming soon to HOLLYWOOD LEGENDS: DANGER, DISASTER AND DISCO taking place live Wednesday, June 12th, Thursday, June 13th, Friday, June 14th and Saturday, June 15th in Los Angeles and online at

A stunning collection of over 1,300 of the most famous and celebrated artifacts from popular film franchises, Golden Age of Hollywood and modern classics, and the legendary producers and production artisans behind the movie magic, will be presented in this four-day auction event.

Lighting up a disco inferno once again this time on the auction stage will be Hollywood’s most famous dancefloor of all time: the original dancefloor featured in Saturday Night Fever. In his star-making turn as the young Tony Manero, John Travolta dressed in his iconic white suit strutting his blazing dance moves across this dance floor to the irresistible soundtrack of the Bee Gees became a cultural phenomenon (estimate: $200,000-$300,000). Both the original acrylic panels and the modern production made panels feature wear from use. The dance floor (photo below) and components are housed within three rolling production carts, two crates, and one road case.

The original and iconic dance floor used by John Travolta as "Anthony 'Tony' Manero" and the cast during the production of the film Saturday Night Fever (Paramount Pictures, 1977). 

The dance floor was custom-made for the 2001 Odyssey Disco in Brooklyn, New York at a cost of $15,000 in 1977 for the production of the film. The dance floor would remain at the club until closing its doors in 2005. At that point, the club had been operating under the name Spectrum, which it gained in 1987. Vito Bruno, one of the club's employees, purchased the floor at the time of closing. In 2012, the floor was featured in the production of the season three episode "Saturday Night Glee-ver" of the television series Glee (20th Century Fox Television, 2012).

After the smash success of Julien’s and TCM’s first “The Dude” auction celebrating the Coen Brothers’ comedy masterpiece’s 25th anniversary, Duderinos will be able to take it easy, man, with even more far out props, costumes and memorabilia from The Big Lebowski production in this new curated collection coming together for the first time in auction history for a good cause. A portion of all of the proceeds from each of these lots will benefit Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry. No Kid Hungry is a national campaign that is working to end childhood hunger in the United States, run by the national nonprofit organization Share Our Strength. Launched in 2010, the No Kid Hungry campaign equips schools and community organizations across the country with the technical assistance, funds and resources they need to connect kids to the food they need to thrive. The Dude Abides..with Jeff Bridges’ iconic bowling costume consisting of his vintage bowling shirt and plaid shorts (photo left). Bridges wears the shirt in the final three scenes of the film, including the “spreading of Donny’s ashes” scene (estimate: $100,000-$200,000) and “The Dude” Lebowski ensemble consisting of a dyed purple Jockey v-neck T-shirt, and loosefitting cotton pants with a distinctive Jamaican pattern worn in various scenes in the film including when The Dude and Walter interrogate Larry Sellers and when he meets Jackie Treehorn (estimate: $50,000-$70,000); John Turturro’s Jesus Quintana six-piece purple ensemble consisting of a purple, short sleeve jumpsuit and matching zippered jacket featuring the name “Jesus” stitched over the proper left chest; a pair of purple socks and purple Linds lace-up bowling shoes worn by Turturro in the scene when he first encounters The Dude, Walter and Donny at the bowling alley (estimate: $100,000-$200,000); John Goodman’s Walter Sobchak seven-piece ensemble comprised of a pair of cotton Canyon Ridge khaki shorts, a cotton and polyester Cotton Mist brown polo shirt, custom made multi-pocketed tan hunting vest, a pair of dark green socks, and distressed green canvas and black leather combat boots, together with a poster of the film featuring Goodman wearing the ensemble (estimate: $15,000-$25,000); and the film production’s lane 21 and lane 22 ball return lanes (estimate: $8,000-$10,000).

A bowling shirt and a pair of plaid shorts worn by Jeff Bridges as Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski in The Big Lebowski (Gramercy, 1998).

The shirt is a vintage yellow and brown rayon short-sleeve bowling shirt with "Art" sewn above the front pocket featuring embroidered bowling ball and pins. The left sleeve has an "American Bowling Congress League Champion 1964-1965" patch, and "Medina Sod" is sewn on the back. Accompanied by a costumer's tag that reads, "Character: Dude / Ch #16 / Scenes: 75-78 / Description: D8 / Mortuary / Ext. Point Dume / Int. Alley / Bar." Bridges wears this shirt in the final three scenes of the film, including the "spreading of Donny's ashes" scene.

Behold one of the greatest archaeological and ancient artifact prop discoveries in all of Hollywood history: an original Ark of the Covenant prototype used for the making of the action-adventure film Raiders of the Lost Ark (estimate: $50,000-$70,000) (photo right). This prop that became an iconic treasure within the blockbuster Indiana Jones film series starring Harrison Ford comes from Peter Stoltz, the Industrial Light & Magic Visual Effects artist who used the prop for the film’s lighting and pyrotechnic testing. The Ark was previously presented on Antiques Roadshow by the owner’s grandson to expert James Supp who identified this as being the closest a collector could get to owning an Ark of the Covenant since the hero prop used in the final version of the film is held by Lucasfilm Archives.

An original production-used Ark of the Covenant prop as used during the making of the action-adventure Indiana Jones film Raiders of the Lost Ark (Lucasfilm Ltd., 1981). 

This ark prop is composed of wood, plastic trophy figures (missing arms), hot glue, and gold-tone paint. The back side of the ark is unfinished and is painted black. The Ark is uniquely constructed from layers of picture frames and hot glue, placed together to form an ornate design. The top of the Ark features a hinged lid and a "battleship gray" painted interior. A cut-out portion of the interior of the lid may have been used to mount the trophy figures and frames on the surface of the lid, or may have served a purpose during pyro experimentation.

This summertime auction event would not be complete without Hollywood’s epic sagas. Joining the previously announced galaxy of Stars Wars’ most iconic helmets, blasters, models, and droids heading to Hollywood Legends are some of the most heart-pounding and imagination fueled props, costumes, and memorabilia from the legendary superheroes, movie menaces, mythic creatures and cinema’s most debonair secret agent.

The helmet is composed of a vacuum-formed plastic that is joined together in multiple places with threaded nuts. An inner MSA brand ratchet-style suspension is present, complete with a foam forehead cushion. Tinted lenses are present at both eyes.

Though this helmet is ultimately unused during filming, this type of TIE Fighter Pilot helmet can be seen most notably during the final battle of the film, when Imperial and Rebel forces battled for control of the schematics for the Death Star, over the planet Scarif.

DC Comics’ greatest superheroes and their most powerful insignias will be represented such as the full costume made for Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in Wonder Woman (estimate: $60,000-$80,000); tiara (estimate: $20,000-$30,000); gauntlets (estimate: $10,000-$20,000); bracelets of submission and harness (estimate: $3,000-$5,000); Christian Bale’s Batman cowl from Batman Begins (2005) (estimate: $3,000-$5,000); trident used by Jason Mamoa as Aquaman in Aquaman (2018) (estimate: $10,000-$20,000); as well as an original production clapperboard from the 1978 classic film Superman (estimate: $5,000- $7,000) and more.

An original production-made costume developed for Gal Gadot as "Diana Prince / Wonder Woman" in the DC Comics film Wonder Woman (Warner Bros. Pictures, 2017). 

This costume is complete with a hand-painted cast rubber chestplate, with internal fabric corset. Attached at the bottom of the chestplate is a hand-painted foam skirt, made of multiple subsections. The interior of the chestplate section of the costume is silver-tone.

An original unused cowl prop developed for Christian Bale as "Bruce Wayne / Batman" for the production of the Christopher Nolan film The Dark Knight (Warner Bros. Pictures, 2008). 

The cowl is composed of a black cast rubber and features the writing "PT 85" inside. An opening is present at one of the nostrils.

This cowl variant was utilized to evaluate material thickness, and was not incorporated in the ultimate film rendition. Approximately seven tiers of rubber thickness were generated for assessment, ranging from extremely soft and flexible to rigid.

An original five-pointed Atlanna's trident prop as used by Jason Mamoa as "Arthur Curry / Aquaman" in the DC Comics film Aquaman (Warner Bros. Pictures, 2018).

This prop trident is composed of a cast rubber with hand-painted detailing throughout. Unlike the classic trident with three points at the top, this unique weapon features five distinct prongs, and a spear-like base. The prop features an internal metal armature for support.

An original production-used clapperboard from the film Superman (Warner Bros., 1978). 

A wooden production-used clapperboard featuring the adhesive writing "SUPERMAN (Prod.) / RICHARD DONNER (Director) / Geoff Unsworth (Cameraman)." Hand-written on tape in the lower left portion of the clapperboard is "SC-24."

The legendary movie Superman boasted a stellar cast featuring Christopher Reeve as Superman, Gene Hackman as Lex Luthor, Marlon Brando as Jor-El, and Margot Kidder as Lois Lane.

Fantastic screen-used props from the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Avengers and X-Men are heading to the auction block such as a production helmet (stage 4) made for Chris Evans as Captain America in Captain America: The First Avenger (estimate: $10,000-$20,000) and his USO Captain America shield (estimate: $6,000-$8,000) (photo right); a trickshot arrow used by Jeremy Renner as Hawkeye in Avengers: Endgame (estimate: $2,000-$3,000); an Eye of Agamotto necklace (stunt) worn by Benedict Cumberbatch as Stephen Strange in Doctor Strange (estimate: $3,000-$5,000); Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine claws used in X-Men Origins: Wolverine (estimate: $2,000-$3,000); as well as Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee’s personal prescription glasses (estimate: $5,000-$7,000) and more.

An original USO shield prop as used by Chris Evans as "Steve Rogers / Captain America" in Captain America: The First Avenger (Marvel Studios, 2011).

This shield is composed of resin and fiberglass, with faux leather straps adhered on the back side for securing the wearer's arm. The weight and quality of this shield indicates it was likely utilized for scenes that required a rigid stunt prop.

Models from the Steven Spielberg classic E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial will take flight such as a 1981 Kuwahara BMX bike custom built to the style of the bike that Elliott played by Henry Thomas rides in for the production that was used in the very first Kuwahara E.T. promo ad placed in BMX Action magazine in July of 1982 promoting E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (estimate: $40,000-$60,000) and an animatronic E.T. full-figure model, used for the E.T. Adventure attractions at Universal Studios Florida, Hollywood and Japan (estimate: $20,000-$30,000).

A 1981 Kuwahara BMX bicycle made for Universal Pictures, custom built to the style of the bike that Elliott (Henry Thomas) rides in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (Universal Pictures, 1982).

This bike was one of the five originals created for the main character Elliott and delivered to Universal Pictures for use in the film. The now iconic red/white style bike that Elliot rides can be seen in various scenes throughout the film. Most notably, the iconic chase scene that culminates with E.T. lifting all the bicycles into the air, allowing the kids to fly through the sky to escape the policemen after them

From the wizarding world of Harry Potter, comes an incredible array of character wands used by the film franchise’s most legendary characters such as Daniel Radcliffe’s Harry Potter wand from Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 (estimate: $8,000-$10,000); Ralph Fiennes’s Lord Voldemort wand used in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (estimate: $15,000-$20,000); Michael Gambon’s Albus Dumbledore wand used in Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (estimate: $8,000-$10,000); Rupert Grint’s Ron Weasley wand used in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (estimate: $5,000-$7,000); Emma Watson’s Hermione Granger wand used in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (estimate: $6,000- $8,000); a Golden Snitch used in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (estimate: $5,000-$7,000).

This type of wand is the principle wand used by Harry Potter at multiple points in the film. This type of wand can be seen during an intense battle between Lord Voldemort (Ralph Fiennes) and Harry while he is knocked unconscious in flight on Hagrid's motorcycle. Harry Potter uses this type of wand until it is broken when both he and Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) are attacked by Lord Voldemort's snake Nagini. Hermione's use of a blasting curse backfires and causes the wand to break.

Daniel Craig’s iconic role as secret agent 007 James Bond will be feted with items such as his “JB” monogrammed cufflinks worn in No Time To Die (estimate: $10,000-$20,000); bullet-hit Aston Martin DB5 window (estimate: $5,000-$7,000) and briefcase in No Time To Die (estimate: $5,000-$7,000); as well as a stunt submachine gun used by Lashana Lynch as Nomi in No Time To Die (estimate: $4,000-$6,000); “Dent’s” gloves worn by Craig (estimate: $5,000-$7,000) and stunt hard drive prop (estimate $8,000-$10,000); as well as an ice pick used by Dave Bautista as Mr. Hinx in Spectre (estimate: $8,000-$10,000); and a million dollar casino chip from Casino Royale (2006) (estimate: $2,000-$3,000).

These oval-shaped silver-tone cufflinks are accented by pearloid inserts that feature the monogrammed initials "JB." Each cufflink is joined at the back by a link-style connector. No maker's marks are present on the back of the cufflinks.

James Bond wears these type of cufflinks during his battle with Mr. Hinx (Dave Bautista) aboard a train. The design for the cufflinks was done by Jany Temime, while the development is attributed to Tom Ford.

The handle contains an expanding foam material on the interior to keep it connected to the rods. Some of the rods have become loose at some ends as their adherent has deteriorated with age, but all are still connected to the main prop.

A Predator mask prop used by Ian Whyte as Elder Predator in the film Alien vs. Predator (20th Century Fox, 2004).

This mask appears at the end of the film when the other Predators take the body of Scar (also Ian Whyte) back on the spaceship and the Elder Predator gives Lex (Sanaa Lathan) a Combistick Spear after seeing the Xenomorph Hunter mark burnt onto her face.
