Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds memorabilia up for auction

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Thousands of items from the estate of Debbie Reynolds and Carrie Fisher will be auctioned by Profiles in History, world's largest auctioneer of original Hollywood memorabilia.

The auction, which will take place from October 7 to 9, also includes vintage "Star Wars" poster signed by Fisher and Director George Lucas, reported Entertainment Weekly.

"Debbie always believed the things should go back from when the came. Collectibles belong back with the collectors," auctioneer Joseph Maddalena said.

One of the items up for sale is Reynolds' personal shot of a young Fisher with her pet bird Benny Karl, circa 1964. It's estimated to fetch somewhere between USD 100 and USD 200.

A custom Princess Leia figurine in a hanging reliquary shrine will likely sell for a minimum of USD 800.

Reynolds had an extensive collection of costumes, including the one worn by Audrey Hepburn in Sabrina in 1954. Designed by Hubert de Givenchy, the two-piece white strapless gown is made of organza and a bustled train. It's likely to sell for more than USD 80,000.

The silk chiffon dress that Reynolds wore in the "You Were Meant For Me" musical sequence with Gene Kelly is also up for auction.

Fisher's bound script for "Star Wars: Episode IV: A New Hope" from 1977 is up for sale as well.

The title page reads, "The Adventures of Luke Starkiller as taken from the 'Journal of the Whills' by George Lucas (Saga I) Star Wars" and a personal note from the director that reads, "To Carrie with much love, George." The estimated auction price is USD 20,000- USD 30,000.

Fisher's personal hand-annotated shooting script from "Star Wars: Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back" from 1980 has also made it to the memorabilia. The script contains more than 1,000 words scribbled by the veteran actor.
