  • Captain America’s Shield Acquired by Smithsonian Institution

    Captain America’s Shield Acquired by Smithsonian Institution

    Captain America’s shield is probably the most famous superhero accessory of all time, second perhaps to the Batarang, which doesn’t even really count since those are more or less disposable.

    ‘Property from the Estate of Jerry Lewis’ Auction Next Month

    Picture this: An exclusive auction of priceless Hollywood memorabilia, surrounded by wealthy prospective bidders. The star item of the collection is brought to the stage, but some idiot wearing glasses trips and falls bringing it to the podium, and the item (let’s say, a vase from Gone with the Wind or something) is destroyed.

    If the home at 12 Picket Post Close in Bracknell, Berkshire, England looks familiar, it’s probably because you saw it in the Harry Potter films, where it stood in for Harry’s old house at 4 Privet Drive (you know, the place where his evil aunt and uncle kept him under the stairs).
