Friends have asked why my wife and I are auctioning a number of rare posters and lobby cards with Heritage Auctions later this week. Answer: we’re trying to simplify our lives. We haven’t taken anything off the walls that we live with every day and enjoy; there’s just too much “stuff” stashed in cabinets and closets.

I don’t know if everyone shares my fascination with flip books, but I’ve never outgrown my youthful fondness for them. In recent years I’ve tracked down a number of unusual movie-related examples, but I’d never seen or even heard of one featuring Harpo Marx, let alone Chico and Marilyn Monroe!

Film archivists and documentary filmmakers have come to value home movies as a valuable document of 20th century American life. But when those 8mm or 16mm films were taken by (and of) famous figures in Hollywood history it piques the curiosity of movie nuts like me. At last year’s TCM Classic Film Festival, Joan Crawford’s grandson introduced some of his famous grandmother’s personal footage. A documentary on Humphrey Bogart drew on the movies he actually shot of his children growing up. And Basil Rathbone’s footage on the set of The Adventures of Robin Hood has been a fan favorite on several home-video releases of the classic swashbuckler.
