Television, movies, living vicariously through others, Disney, rare and unique finds, whiskers on kittens and cheap and feeble attempts at humor by parodying Hollywood’s most beloved classic musicals: these are a few of my favorite things. So needless to say I was thrilled when I learned that Syfy would be introducing a new series titled ‘Hollywood Treasure’ in which we followed the path of Hollywood’s treasures from unearthing to ending up on the auction house block. And when Syfy reached out to me to ask if I would be interested in reviewing the first two episodes from the 12-episode season, I would have ordinarily jumped at the chance, but what could Syfy (owned by NBC Universal incidentally) possibly offer me, someone who focuses on The Walt Disney Company? Apparently everything (but more on that later).
We previously announced the ‘LOST’ exhibit and memorobilia auction being held by Profiles in History in Santa Monica on August 21 and 22, 2010.
Profiles in History has graciously provided us with hi-res photos of some of the items that will be going up on the auction block to some very lucky bidders. In addition, the auction preview gallery is now live on Profile in History’s website here.
