Do you fantasize about living the life of a movie star? Maybe go back in time or take a leap into the future; or perhaps be as fearless as some of the great action heroes in your favorite movie? Well, you may not be a movie star, but you can certainly own a piece of memorabilia that can make your dream come true…sort of.
Recently at an auction in Los Angeles, Harrison Ford’s fedora from Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) was the featured item in a sale. Another version of the hat also made an appearance in Raiders of the Lost Ark (one of my personal favorites!); both were created by Herbert Johnson. Although the hat showed its age with some light wear, it was considered to be in excellent condition and was estimated to make $150 – 250K. Hang on to your less expensive hats folks because this one sold for $300K, and now someone can pretend to be Indiana Jones in their new/old Fedora.
