Auctions of Movie and Rock 'n' Roll Memorabilia Set

March 12, 1993

Just have to have Freddy Krueger's actual kid-killer glove in time for Halloween? Or Sid Vicious' silk-lined cream tuxedo jacket? The fine-art auctioneer house Butterfield & Butterfield is going pop culture with a vengeance, with separate movie and rock 'n' roll memorabilia auctions Sunday and Monday.

Sunday's spread, up for bids beginning at 1 p.m., will include such film artifacts as the "Batman" cowl, Judy Garland's "Wizard of Oz" test apron, Scotty's tunic from "Star Trek," a bullet-riddled "Terminator 2" leather jacket and Walt Disney and Chuck Jones animation cels.

Monday's rock 'n' roll sale, commencing at 7:30 p.m., will dispose of a never-released Rolling Stones acetate of Bo Diddley songs, an autographed Bob Dylan harmonica, and the bandleader costumes worn by the Bee Gees in the movie "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," among hundreds of items.

The rock collection comes courtesy of Hard Rock Cafe co-founder Isaac B. Tigrett, who is selling off his goods to raise money for an educational charity.

For more information, call (213) 850-7500.
