Bearnes Hampton & Littlewood, the Westcountry's leading auction house combed the entire universe to find the purchaser for a jacket from the crew of the ‘Nostromo’ in the film Alien.

Engineer Brett's Jacket (SC16/721)

In this classic film directed by Ridley Scott one of the characters was Engineer Brett, played by Harry Dean Stanton and it was his jacket that was up for auction, together with a photograph of the crew.

Nostromo Badge (SC16/721)

It was part of a collection consigned to Bearnes Hampton and Littlewood from the estate of the late Sheala Daniall who worked on the accounts and budgets for such films as Alien, Raiders of The Lost Ark and Return of The Jedi.

It may be true that “In space no one can hear you scream” but after intense bidding by telephone and Internet the jacket and photograph sold for £2,500.

Next time Christopher Lee and the Hammer House of Horror.
