    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.

    We have a winner:

Chris was the first person to correctly guess the door from the original Universal Studios Alfred Hitchcock 1960 film, “Psycho“. Chris wins 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. Chris, please email me at Admin@MoviePropCollectors.com for your contact info.

    Thanks to everyone who entered. Their were some great guesses :) .

    Special mention to Dan Wright who also guessed correctly shortly after Chris.

    Here is Profiles in History’s complete auction catalog page of Lot #96: The original front door of the house from “Psycho” (1960).

    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 :) .

    Well since I feel Dan got robbed of his goal. Did all the leg work just to see a dude touched the ball as was crossing the goal line. I'm just watching the clock from your post here and then Chris post. It's almost 2 hours apart with an different answer from your psycho one. Not taken away Chris win, but looks as he took your idea and glory maybe. But rules are rules for a reason.

    Anyway I'll send you my copy of the catalog if profiles sends me one. I seem to get one almost every time lately. If I don't get a copy...well sorry Holmes. Wait..you're in the UK..F that! Jk man, I'll still mail it out still.

    - - - Updated - - -

    huh..you are joking right? I can't see the answers on the site anymore. Was that a day 2 answer?

    No not a joke. I posted the answer on both pages. I actually almost answered this the first day and hesitated because it was on its side and went back and posted later!

    In fact here is my computer search history dated 2 days before I posted the answer.

    It's pretty straightforward and easy to understand guys :) .

    Chris posted his guess before Dan. Whether it was seconds, minutes or hours. Both comments (guesses) were approved at the same time and Chris's appeared first.

    To be nice since they posted near one another I told Dan if I get another catalog from PIH I will out of my pocket, send one to him too.

    Now Monkey, why are you being a naughty primate and flinging your poo?.....(All said tongue in cheek of course ;) ).

    Oh I'm not flinging poo / causing a problem...am I? I mean no disrespect to anyone playing or running the contest. I'm not taken anything away from Chris. He won fair and square. I don't have a problem with his win since he did play by the rules. I'm just thinking that he took dan's answer before Dan could fix his error and place it on the right site. Did he? Idk for sure as I said I'm going off this site alone. A time stamp is a time stamp, no question about it. I simply feel for Dan and would gladly give him my personal copy of a catalog if one is sent to me. That's just me trying to be a nice guy.

    You are totally being a nice and generous guy to offer up anything you might have extra of. I'm simply trying to help out by offering mine in case you have no luck.

    The other person I figured was joking about it. I have no insight on thier claim nor think it to be true.

    If I have offended anyone, sorry my bad. no hard feelings to anyone, I enjoy the game.
