Profiles in History announces the sale of the largest collection of Hollywood costumes and props in the world. For the first time in 50 years, the private collection owned by screen legend Debbie Reynolds will be made available to the public in a series of auctions beginning in June 2011.
The Debbie Reynolds Collection is deemed to be the most significant collection of Hollywood costumes and props since the liquidation of the MGM and FOX studios in the 1970’s.
“My lifetime dream has been to assemble and preserve the history of the Hollywood film industry. Hollywood has been an enormous part of my life as I know it has been for countless fans all over the world. This collection represents a lifetime of collecting Hollywood artifacts and this is a rare opportunity to own a piece of Hollywood History for those who love the movies as much as I do. For the first time in nearly five decades, these iconic pieces will be made available to the public through a series of auctions presented by Profiles in History beginning in June 2011.” – Debbie Reynolds
