Eszterhas Promotes On Set Thievery
Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas has urged people who work on movie sets to steal props and sell them on eBay, because they could stand to make a fortune.
Eszterhas advises potential thieves to aim for an item which could become iconic - like the pick axe which featured in his Basic Instinct script.
He says, "Steal as much memorabilia from the set as you can.
"There seems to be a market for everything on eBay these days.
"If you are somehow lucky enough to get something iconic, like the ice pick I wrote into my script for Basic Instinct, I would suggest you hang onto it."
