Obscure movie prop you wished you owned

Other than the ruby slippers or the sled "Rosebud"--which are the two most 0bvious (and there were multiple copies made of each)--which would you most want to own personally?

I would love to own one of the "Summer Rain" perfume bottles from "The Women," with the glass figure holding the glass umbrella on the top.

the owner was a huge collector of movie props and costumes, and when he retired he sold the business to a non-profit organization that still rents DVDs and Blu-Rays (it's probably the last in Portland) but also keeps the props on display. You can see there:

*Rod Taylor's miniature time machine

*Miriam's broken glasses from "Strangers on a Train"

*the presentation copy of the Maltese Falcon statuette Warner Brothers gave Humphrey Bogart

*one of the balsa wood copies of "Rosebud:" they used in "Citizen Kane"

In addition, they also have:

*the baby carriage from "The Unotuchables"

*the carved piece of soap (really plastic) that says "Fight Club" from the poster for that movie

*knives from "Scream" and the shower sequence from "Psycho"

*the severed ear from "Blue Velvet"

Plus costumes worn by: Vanessa Redgrave and Glenda Jackson in "Mary Queen of Scots" (they are both enormously tall women), Ginger Rogers in "The Major and the Minor," Frank Morgan in "The Wizard of Oz," Madonna in "Evita" (she is a tiny woman), Julie Andrews in "The Sound of Music" (ditto), Jodie Foster in "Panic Room," Mike Myers in "Austin Powers," Diane Keaton and Talia Shire from "The Godfather Part II," etc.

Bonnie Cashin is a truly iconic American designer.

Offsite Link
by Dolly de Puysterreply 12707/15/2021

^^ Yes! This is the sort of forward thinking stuff she did:

[quote] The wearer is ready for day or evening in this elegant ensemble. As rustic, tactile, and colorful as Cashin's favored mohair is, this outfit works chiefly in terms of silhouette. The profusion of skirt materials can be pulled up and even stuffed into pockets ("retroussée dans les poches") to create a look reminiscent of late eighteen-century fashion. The Cashin silhouette, however, is more simply achieved with an unusual skirt fastener. She called this favorite device her "dog leash" in recognition of that simple hardware. The effect is to winch up the cloth and make the mohair more layered and luxurious by a profoundly simple hitch. A suede bodice, a surprising element for evening, provides a luxurious contrast as well.

[quote]R119: Some of these are available to be seen on display for free at a video store, Movie Madness, in Portland, OR.

Alas, R119, not the miniature Time Machine, since the original was kept, together with its ornate box, by George Pal at his home in Bel Air. It perished in the 1961 Bel Air fire, which took out the entire neighborhood. A shame, since it's probably the single film prop I would have most coveted. If Movie Madness has one on display, it's a replica.

In place of it, I might accept in exchange one of the Martian War Machine models used in 𝐖𝐚𝐫 𝐨𝐟 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐖𝐨𝐫𝐥𝐝𝐬 (1953), if any of them survive. Or perhaps 'Robby the Robot' from 𝐅𝐨𝐫𝐛𝐢𝐝𝐝𝐞𝐧 𝐏𝐥𝐚𝐧𝐞𝐭 (1956).

(I choose these since we're talking 𝑓𝑖𝑙𝑚 props; my most coveted objects would be from television, like an old-style laser pistol from the first few episodes of 𝐒𝐭𝐚𝐫 𝐓𝐫𝐞𝐤.)

So is a handbag a prop or part of a costume?

by Dolly de Puysterreply 30207/17/2021

If it is part of a costume, it's a costume.

If in the scene, the handbag is sitting on a shelf and is for sale, then it is a prop.

So is Mary Poppin's carpet bag a prop or part of a costume?

by Dolly de Puysterreply 30407/17/2021

It's both, r304.

by Dolly de Puysterreply 30507/17/2021

So it depends on how it is used according to the plot. It can change from scene to scene. So that the costume in All About Eve is both.

In practical terms, a prop is considered to be anything movable or portable on a stage or a set, distinct from the actors, scenery, costumes, and electrical equipment. Consumable food items appearing in the production are also considered props.

by Dolly de Puysterreply 31007/17/2021

Obviously that distinction can at times be blurred as when somebody's hat turns into a prop.
