The record price for Hollywood memorabilia was smashed Saturday when pop star Michael Jackson paid more than $1.5 million for producer David O. Selznick's best picture Oscar from the classic film "Gone With the Wind." Jackson, bidding in the Sotheby's auction via phone through an agent against another phone bidder, paid $1,542,500. That obliterated the previous mark of $607,500 set in 1996 for the Oscar Clark Gable won as best actor in the 1934 film "It Happened One Night."

A 58-minute film of John F. Kennedy greeting voters during his 1952 Senate campaign sold for $34,500 on Thursday as an auction wound up with more enthusiastic bidding than the dismal first day. The 16mm black-and-white footage of Kennedy, parts with no sound and parts with Kennedy narration, was intended for television commercials. It shows him greeting factory workers and others in Massachusetts and was bought by an anonymous telephone bidder.

All 662 lots were sold, said Christie's spokeswoman Roberta Maneker. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Roman Catholic seminaries of the Los Angeles Archdiocese. The sale had been projected to bring up to $1.
