The Golden Closet Newsletter Blog May 2009
May has proven to be another busy month here at The Golden Closet. Exciting new entertainment memorabilia items are constantly being added to our collection of screen used celebrity wardrobe and props. We also had several items that were sold in the recent Profiles in History Auction that took place on March 1st. Auction results will be posted soon and more info can be found at www.profilesinhistory.com.
We were saddened to hear about the recent passing of Mr. Dom Deluise, a true comedy legend that brought laughter to millions of film fans over the years and whose collaboration with Burt Reynolds produced some of the finest comedies of the 1970’s era. We are proud to offer collectors the chance to own memorabilia from two of Mr. Deluise’s funniest films, “Cannonball Run” and the film adaptation of “The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas”, both of which featured the actor’s long time friend and collaborator Burt Reynolds. These items are currently featured on Ebay and can be viewed by clicking on this link:
Fans of deceased rap legend Tupac Shakur now have the opportunity to purchase signature wardrobe the artist wore in the 1997 film “Gridlock’d” starring Tim Roth. The film was one of Shakur’s last acting performances and was released only a few months after Mr. Shakur’s untimely death. The outfit consists of a vintage t-shirt and Armani Exchange pants. Images and purchasing information can be found on our website at this link:
We are also pleased to offer costume wardrobe worn by legendary musical entertainer Deborah Harry (AKA “Blondie) in John Carpenter’s made for television production “Body Bags”. The outfit is a nurse’s costume that was worn in the segment “Hair”. More information and continuity images of the actress wearing the costume can be found here at this link:

Robinson, Eleanor Parker, Joanne Woodward, Carole Lombard, Olivia DeHavilland, and more.
