Thanks for the heads up! That's one expensive dirty t-shirt 🤣 I still cling to the hope of meeting TJ one day. One handshake and loud bravo would be enough for me.

Nah... costumes often look icky and stinky (as they are supposed to) - puts me right off! 🤣 

I really couldn't justify spending $1000 dollars on an item of clothing, simply because someone I like wore it in a film or something. If I had that kind of money to throw around, I'd spend it on improving someone's life... or many people's lives. A thousand bucks could inoculate an entire village in India, for example, and still have change! 

(That's absolutely not a criticism of anyone who does spend money on fan stuff, BTW - everyone should be able to do what makes them happy... as long as it doesn't harm anyone, of course. Plus, I fully admit to spending £10 on making a Rocinante cup!)

Sadly (or fortunately!) I’ve got far too much Yorkshire blood to justify spending $1000 on a t-shirt!  Even (and I can’t believe I’m saying this) one worn by TJ!  
But if money was no object then who knows........I could do the good deeds thing and still have money left for frivolities 😉

I belong to a prop group that is huge on FB.  Would it interest you to know that while we do spend some major money on props for many it is more than just an expensive pastime or hobby?   I can say we have changed lives in a village.  Our donations of items to various charities...has benefitted Make-A-Wish, cancer research, animal shelters, children’s hospitals, Ronald McDonald’s Houses...just to name a few.  Lives have been changed and transformed.  It’s been nice to participate in giving back because I could donate Hollywood history to an auction that would raise money for things I hold dear to my heart.  ❤️ Especially, cancer research..I lost my father and my sister to cancer.  Teresa, (my beautiful sister) donated her eyes...all she had left to give...now someone can see...TJ’s PSA on that touched my heart and soul.  

Also, it’s nice to know that we are preserving Hollywood history in some form.  Films touch our lives and entertain us. In the past, studios would dump...these items... can you imagine..Judy Garland’s dress or ruby slippers being dumped?  Gene Kelly’s outfit from Singing in the Rain, eaten by moths or dumped also? Of course, because of collectors, this part of our America film history has been preserved for generations to see. 
 

I collect whom and what I love in regards to film...for enjoyment and because their work touched my childhood and adulthood.   Very proud to say I have also achieved having an item from every one of TJ’s films.  To me, he’s worth my time and money and maybe one day I can donate his items to an archive or museum.  We are fans, we just take it to another level. 😊 He has graciously authenticated items for me and admits he collects certain items as well.  To watch Deep Blue Sea and know I have his “stunt wetsuit” or a shirt from Molly, just makes me smile, and has opened up my world to different friends and people, just like this forum.  We are no different then the fans that were here in the TJ heyday, or the fans that travel worldwide to go to premieres or Comic Cons etc...to see or meet film heroes.  I know a lady that owns TJ’s hero vest from The Punisher...she traveled many miles to see him at a Con...and brought the vest with her.  As she approached him in line...she could see his eyes light up.  When she got up to him, he asked if he could hold the vest.  He validated her time, money, and trip, with his smile and questions. He was a bit overwhelmed to see something he had wore so many years ago, preserved in a fan’s home and hands! ❤️❤️ That alone...along with the reasons I mentioned is why I collect TJ...he loves his fans.  His words to me about the Deep Blue Sea prop:

 

“Says Jane and says ‘stunt’ so it looks like you got the real stunt suit!

Nice find. Just don’t wear it on a hot day.  ;)“

TJ

So, as you can see our time, money, effort, we do not considered as “thrown” away.  We pay it forward, we love what we do, and love why we do it.  ❤️ Thanks for your response! 😊👍🏻

Ha, I must admit, I didn't think of that! Clearly, I have little concept of money being no object! 🤣 

(Still not convinced I'd be willing to spend a grand on a sweaty second-hand tee shirt, though, regardless of who it may have been worn by!)

That's really nice to know, Sundance. As I made a point of saying before, I was only speaking for myself, and that others are free to do as they wish. I was not, nor would I, judge someone for spending their hard-earned money in a way that I wouldn't feel worked for me. It gladdens me to know that you and your group are doing so much to help others - you sound lovely, and I hope you didn't feel as though I was judging you!

BTW, if your group is interested, Kiva is absolutely worth working with. I make microloans on a regular basis, which then goes to help all kinds of people all over the world.

Here we have to agree to differ, I'm afraid! As far as I am concerned, a prop or a costume is just a tool. Having worked in film, TV, and theatre, I know from first-hand experience that if possible, these things often get recycled, which is eminently practical, so I'd find it hard to form any kind of emotional or sentimental attachment to such things! Truly, I really wouldn't care whether Judy Garland's or Gene Kelly's (or anyone else's for that matter!) costumes cease to exist. In fact, until now, I wasn't even aware that they do... probably because it's not something I've ever wondered about! 

Once the film is done, those things have fulfilled their purpose. Their continued existence adds nothing to my enjoyment of the work they contributed to. As Holmes famously said, "The work is its own reward"😋

BUT... I should add that I am not a materialistic person, and I don't form attachments to things that I perceive to have no practical value to me. A costume (in whole or part), for example, comes under that criterion. If I can't use it in my work, can't wear it, or if it serves no purpose other than to look nice, or because it happened to be used/owned/worn by someone whose work I enjoy, I'd find it hard to muster up the desire to own it. If that makes sense! 

Even my Rocinante cup, I made to use as a prop in a photo shoot. I use it every day as a tea cup but if I didn't, I wouldn't having it gathering dust, and being of no use, I'd have passed it onto someone else. I say this as a massive, massive Expanse fan! 🤣 (And people wonder why I like Amos so much! Ha ha!)

I certainly can't argue with that! 😋 

It's cool that you have such a rewarding hobby. One of mine is playing videogames, which a lot of people would find utterly pointless (although my love of games did enable me to make a decent living for over a decade, when I worked in the industry)! For me, playing games is a way to relax after working hard (on average, I work 85 hours a week). Some folk go out drinking - I'd rather spend my money on games. You'd rather spend yours on movie memorabilia. We all have our own shtick... it's what makes us such a wonderfully diverse species!

 That's really sweet! I imagine it must be a blast from the past for actors to see their old stuff not only brought out but so lovingly cared for, too!

Well, to be fair, I didn't say that I considered it to be throwing money away! I said, "to throw around", which is not in any way the same thing! Over here, it's used to express casual spending, without needing to be mindful! Maybe it means something different where you come from!

Nor did I say that anyone was wrong for doing what makes them happy. Quite the opposite, in fact! Anyway, I'm genuinely happy that you love doing what you do - I suspect the world would be a much better place if everyone were able to! 🙏

😂😂😂I have no sweaty t-shirts in my collection!! Sweat is very costly...and with DNA cloning and the advances of technology...it’s out of my range!!! 😂😂😂 I do have a tacky, crumbling, stick of gum that I found in one of Robert Redford’s shirt pockets! 😳😳😳😳 However, without proof that he touched it or thought about chewing it...it’s value diminishes each day!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

I don’t think we differ about our worldview I think we take different avenues and means,  to achieve the same results.   To preserve our film history and our stories, go hand in hand with a movie prop. I like looking back in history and seeing where we were and how far we have progressed. 

Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History is here to preserve our past and present in the entertainment history; among other things.  From music, superheroes, even music, and comics.  It’s a small part of our heritage, but vital to our way of life and thinking.  

“This Museum's popular entertainment collections hold some of the Smithsonian's most beloved artifacts. The ruby slippers worn by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz reside here, along with the Muppet character Kermit the Frog, and props from popular television series such as M*A*S*H and All in the Family. But as in many of the Museum's collections, the best-known objects are a small part of the story. 

The collection also encompasses many other artifacts of 19th- and 20th-century commercial theater, film, radio, and TV—some 50,000 sound recordings dating back to 1903; posters, publicity stills, and programs from films and performances; puppets; numerous items from World's Fairs from 1851 to 1992; and audiovisual materials on Groucho Marx, to name only a few.”  I could spend days in the Smithsonian...I am a history geek! 

Kiva, does sound interesting and something I will address with the administrators.  It would be great to branch out.

OMG.... you just made me laugh very, very loudly! 🤣🤣🤣 I don't even want to know how you'd go about getting DNA proof from chewing gum... but I bet there's a website for it. Probably with photographic instructions.

Pass the mind bleach, would you! Ha ha!

Actually, you make a very good point, and the more I think about it, it's no different, really, than a library full of books of folk tales, or a an archaeological or ethnographic museum. I suppose I just automatically saw movie props etc. as a means to do a job, without actually giving any consideration to the fact that essentially, they are no different to an ancient hand axe, an item of folk costume, or an abacus. All of these things have had a cultural impact on the way we are now, or have led to where we're at now, so why should movie stuff be any different? Is an original Star Wars script any different in essence to one penned by Shakespeare? Aside from the obvious age thing, of course! 

I am in complete agreement with you about looking back at history, and as you say, we just take different routes. Mine, for example, is domestic history, particularly with regard to women, and how our lives and expectations have changed over the centuries. And culinary history is something I continue to study and write about a lot. I still wouldn't have any memorabilia though, unless I could put it to good use! 😂

Maybe one day, if I ever return to the US, we could a field trip together! And if you find yourself over here, I could show you some of ours!

It's great - it gives me a big happy to be able to help, and know I am helping people to help themselves, too. Especially in areas I've worked in - mostly in South East Asia and Eastern Europe. It's also cool to occasionally spot some of the NGOs I've worked with in the past, still doing their bit. The best part though, is getting emails to tell me that my loans have been paid off. Not because I get my money back (I don't - I just re-lend it over and over again) but because it means that people's lives are improving, and that they are able to build a future. That means so much to me!
