I’m a producer for a new TV show and we are looking for fantastic movie props to feature on the show. We found your collection and would be very interested in speaking with you further.
Please give me a call or write back at your earliest convenience. I look forward to speaking with you.
This vintage sundress was worn by the character `Tara Gregson/Alice', portrayed by Australian actor Toni Collette in the award winning series "United States of Tara".
The pink and white gingham dress with a red floral pattern is constructed of lightweight cotton, and features a sleeveless crossover bodice and full skirt. It was worn most notably in Alice's debut episode `Aftermath' (Season 1, Episode 2.) In the episode, Tara finds herself having difficulty talking to her daughter about sex, and becomes frustrated that her son prefers his father to deal with a school related problem rather than her. Her distress in dealing with the situation results in the emergence of her alter ego Alice, a perfect Betty Crocker 1950's housewife personality who decides to take matters into her own hands. This episode was aired in Australia on the ABC on the 5th August, 2009.
Toni Collette received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy for the show's first season. The following year she won a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series (Musical/ Comedy.)
The dress came from Palace Costume Company, the costume house in Los Angeles that hired it to the show's wardrobe department. Now if I can only find the green cardigan and gloves or the apron to go with it !!
Sometimes the opportunity comes to add some truly amazing items to my collection.
These are Liam Neeson and Ralph Fiennes shaving equipment from Schindler’s List. (Universal, 1993) Included are the straight razor and aluminium shaving brush used by Ralph Fiennes in his role as “Amon Goeth”, and straight razor with box and wooden handle shaving brush used by Liam Neeson as “Oskar Schindler”. They were used in the short overlapping scene, where they are both shown shaving before the clearing of the Jewish ghetto later that day.
All items are vintage German-made equipment, and come from the personal collection of Batia Grafka, the film’s prop master and includes his letter of authenticity.
This stunning wrap around evening gown was worn by J-Lo in a deleted scene from the film Monster in Law. Supposedly created from another dress, which was too small from Jennifer's character and heavily embroidered net curtains, it was designed by Australian costume designer Kym Barrett, and hand made by the film's skilled wardrode department. The scene, and the dress, can be seen on the Monster in Law DVD.
Cpl. Wilhelm Wicki’s (Gedeon Burkhard) bullet wound jacket used in the Quentin Tarantino’s 2009 unique take on World War 2, Inglourious Basterds. This was worn by Wicki when he met an unfortunate end in the underground bar after a German officer becomes suspicious about their covert op, ending in a bloody shootout. The dark grey jacket has a black band around the sleeve with embroidered silver German writing, the black and silver Panzer emblem patch on the left sleeve, SS and pips collar tabs, silver with golden pips and Waffen S.S. cipher epaulettes, and finally a black and red button hole ribbon. It also has the obvious addition of multiple bullet holes in the front, back and arm from the special effects shots in the fire fight.
