Julien's Auctions is proud to present our "Hollywood: Legends & Explorers" auction taking place in Beverly Hills and live online at Julien's Live on Friday, July 17th and Saturday, July 18th.
This summer, Julien’s Auctions, reaches for the stars and rockets into space with "Hollywood: Legends & Explorers" auction taking place on Friday, July 17th & Saturday, July 18th in Beverly Hills and live online at Julien's Live. This two-day extravaganza offers a marquee collection of over 900 items from Hollywood entertainment film and television both past and present. A special category to this year’s edition is an exclusive collection of significant and historical Space artifacts and treasures.
The highlight of the auction is one of the most iconic space suits from the Hollywood science fiction masterpiece that captured the imagination of filmgoers unlike any before... Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. The suit features a helmet that was repainted throughout production for many scenes, and is believed to have been worn by the film’s star, Keir Dullea, as mission pilot and scientist Dr. David Bowman in the most memorable scene in the film, when his character Dr. Bowman reenters the antechamber of the Discovery ship leading to the "brain room" and logic center to "kill" HAL.
