Guess the movie and prop/item used in what film and win a prize package

Prop Store
Thought I would post a little contest I am running on my site. Everybody is free to enter :) .

Todays Hollywood Auction #74 preview item is extra special in that Movie Prop Collectors is making it a contest.

Profiles in History donated a prize package of an Auction #74 auction catalog, (which is over 650 pages, of almost 2,000 lots featuring amazing Hollywood props, costumes, art, and emphemera), a Profiles T Shirt, coffee mug, and a special PIH keychain celebrating their 30th anniversay which was available to select Comic Con 2015 attendees.

To enter just click to make a comment in the comments section of the article and post your movie title and the item you think this is, The first person to correctly guess both the film and item wins!

Each day I will post another part of the photo and give another hint as to what the film and item is.

Today’s hint: The film is well known and was released before 1980. The item itself is also very familiar to most of us in our lives.

Nice, Congrats.

Only problem I ran across was how was the remake so horrible? It was shot frame to frame from the 1960's version. Kinda like it was honoring the masterpiece. That clue threw me off the pyscho trail.

General opinion of movie goers more than anything. When the original has a 90+ % rating, and the remake is about 35%, that generally indicates most people thought it was horrible :) ... (Or that the idea of an exact remake was just a horrible idea...). I remember it being pretty universally hated when it came out.

I got ya. People dont seem to like remakes of classics. Even tho it is the same screen shots.This was a fun game to play. Thanks for making it.

Are you Dan? Great guess!

I approved his and your ( (Dan Wright's) comments at the same time in the order they appeared in my Admin panel before posting publicly. He made his right before yours so he had an earlier timestamp.

if I get anything extra from Profiles (I can't promise anything), I will send your way :) .
