Obi-wan's Lost Cloak Stuns At Auction
Star Wars sage OBI-WAN KENOBI's famous cloak has gone under the hammer for $104,000 (GBP53,300) at a movie memorabilia auction.
An anonymous fan snapped up the famous hooded garment, which had been tossed into a prop warehouse and forgotten, at the Bonhams sale in London yesterday (06MAR07).
The cloak was worn by SIR Alec Guinness when he played Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars, EMPIRE STRIKES BACK and RETURN OF THE JEDI.
Other highlights of the Bonhams auction included the fur-lined dressing gown Madonna wore as EVA PERON in Evita, which was purchased by a collector for $5,200 (GBP2,670).
Other items that went under the hammer included Mel Gibson's Braveheart kilt and SIR Sean Connery's James Bond dinner jacket from 1965 movie Thunderball, which sold for $64,700 (GBP33,200).
