Review Entries for Day Wednesday, 06 March 2013

In a strange Twilight Zone sense of looking into the future auction market, it seems odd to be looking at the past future. Once you have your head around that idea it only becomes (slightly) clearer when you look at the selection of Film Memorabilia and Collectables on offer in the Sporting & Collectors Sale of 20th March 2013 at Dowell Street in Honiton.

 Alien 1979 Nostromo crew shirt worn by Harry Dean Stanton

 
In 1979 Alien captured the imagination of film fans with its disturbing look at space exploration and possible close encounters of the future. A huge box office success on its release, it seems odd today that the film is now 34 years old and we have already passed the first decade of the 21st century.
 
Film makers today now understand the commercial side of toys, collectables and Film Memorabilia that accompany any new film upon its release. In the late 1970’s however there wasn’t such thought given to merchandising and so original props, scripts and photographs from film sets are extremely desirable.   The shirt here (SC16/721) was worn by Harry Dean Stanton and is accompanied by a photograph of the cast, a photograph of Sigourney Weaver and her signature on a compliment slip. Though Harry Dean Stanton was perhaps not the most memorable character (Brett), the films popularity and cult status will still attract buyers to a classic piece of Film Memorabilia
 
It also reminds us, that whilst each generation considers itself to be the most up to date and forward thinking, it doesn’t take long before it all become another piece of nostalgia for the next generation.
