Cánh cửa 'Titanic' cứu Rose bán với giá 718.750 USD

theo Heritage Auctions, nó giống như mảnh vỡ nổi tiếng trục vớt từ vụ đắm tàu ​​năm 1912, nơi đưa nó vào kho kỷ vật từ Planet Hollywood

At the end of the movie “Titanic,” Rose floats atop an ornately decorated piece of a door frame as her beloved Jack clings to its edge, holding her hand. A rescue boat (thuyền cứu hộ) finally arrives, but in time only for Rose, who promises to “never let go” of Jack as she frees herself from his icy grip and he slips below the surface of the Atlantic.

The wood panel sold at auction for $718,750 on Saturday, part of a trove of memorabilia from Planet Hollywood. About 1,600 items, including the whip from “Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom,” a bowling ball from “Kingpin” and the ax from “The Shining,” brought in $15.7 million, according to Heritage Auctions, the auction house (nhà đấu giá) that handled the sales.

The prop was one of several “Titanic” items on the auction block; others included the ship’s helm and costumes (phục trang) worn by DiCaprio and Winslet. All but a few sold and some are still available, including high school yearbooks featuring Steven Seagal, Sharon Stone and Michelle Pfeiffer, and a red thong from “The Full Monty.”

In February, Robert Earl, the chairman and co-founder of Planet Hollywood, said in a statement that the sale was “an extremely exciting, pivotal moment” for the resort and casino group. The items were a selection of memorabilia from the Planet Hollywood vaults, he said.

When the first Planet Hollywood opened in New York City in 1991, it was a star-studded affair, with appearances from Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone, who were among the restaurant’s financial backers. Planet Hollywood would go on to open more than 100 locations around the world. But the luster quickly faded, and the company filed for bankruptcy (phá sản) twice after opening a marquee location in Las Vegas in 1998. Earl lost $1 billion along the way.
