    I know the house used for the outside shots burned down a number of years ago, and that the interiors were done via sets. Does anyone know if there are any props from that movie around or in a collection anywhere? I'd love to see one, or heaven forbid, actually own one...

    Being a Paramount picture the furniture was all theirs. The large red throne chairs in the entry way, best seen at the resolution sequences at the end, were from the old RKO hoard and were used in CITIZEN KANE and later STAR TREK:TOS. A member here owns the one used there.

    That's pretty cool info! I'd love to know if anyone has id'ed the actual murder weapons. I would love to buy copies if they are simple enough to get.

    I know the rope should be easy enough to duplicate.

    Had no idea there was a firearm movie database. I just lost 2 hours...

    Anyone know about the knife or candlestick?

    I think the prop to own from the movie would be Yvette the maid. I'll give the movie another look for more reasonable items.

    Check the paper props sub forum. Someone recently made them there, you can download bad print them I think...

    [Edit] Haha, turns out it was Marc that made for that display... Makes sense I guess. Here's a link to the thread:

    It is indeed a very expensive collection!

    A replica of the knife can be bought here:
    http://www.ebay.com/itm/PAKISTAN-KNIVES-Commando-Knife-11-1-4-Overall-Matte-Finish-Brass-/400644104052?pt=Collectible_Knives&hash=item5d483f df74]PAKISTAN KNIVES Commando Knife 11 1/4" Overall Matte Finish Brass

    The rope and pipe can be bought at any hardware store (the pipe isn't really made from lead these days).

    The wrench is an antique pipe/monkey wrench I got on Ebay. There are lots of them up for sale but the trick is finding the one used in the movie. There are a bunch with wood handles that look like the right one but the one they used is solid metal.
    Like this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Metal-Handled-12-Inch-Monkey-Nut-Wrench-Stamped-Intermediate-/171215933972?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27dd43 d214]Metal Handled 12 Inch Monkey Nut Wrench Stamped Intermediate

    The candlestick, unfortunately, doesn't have any replicas that I am aware of. I found a set of two at an estate sale. They had no idea what they had but I did! I kept one and sold the other to another person who was looking to collect the Clue weapons. They are antiques so its hard to find them cheap. Keep searching ebay and you may get lucky.

    The gun I have yet to find an acceptable replica. A genuine will run you about $250+. Mine is a plastic toy that I painted (my wife wouldn't allow me to have a real gun - even without any ammo)

    Hope that helps!

    Here is my collection. The only weapon I do not have is the H&R. That's a tough firearm to find. I managed to reproduce a few of the blackmail photos as well. The wrench is a british issued Billings/Coe wrench (UK Gas Grip, whatever that is) stamped with a triangle symbol centered with a 'B', the candlestick is one of the Diamond Jubilee collection, "The Diamond Princess" (pretty easy to find on ebay- got mine for $60 a set) and the dagger is an old Fairbarn Sykes WWII British Commando Knife (those are pricy, but I found a cheap replica in brass for $25 on ebay). The pistol (according to IMFDb) is an H&R model 732 with nickel finish and a 4" barrel. The rope is a standard hemp- I can't tell whether it's 5/8" or 3/4", and the lead pipe is a 1 1/2" x 18" standard galvanized iron pipe nipple (Home Depot).

    Oh man, this is one of those times where I really wish I hadn't been browsing the RPF. Now I want to collect them as well.

    Hi all. I am new to the forum, directed here mainly because I am trying to assemble my own collection of Clue weapons. Looking at the candlestick, and comparing screenshots from the movie, I'm still a little unsure exactly which model was used. Is the Prince of Diamonds? The Princess of Diamonds? Something about the way the candlestick was photographed for the movie is making it difficult for me to match. If anyone can help me narrow this down I would greatly appreciate it. And props (pun intended) to those of you with such great collections!

    Absolutely loved this movie when i was growing up. Watched it way too many times on vhs. Great to see prop collectors on this forum consider it worthy of it's own collection.

    Found the knife on eBay: PAKISTAN KNIVES Commando Knife 11 1/4" Overall Matte Finish Brass

    It has begun. I also scored a candlestick holder off of ebay as well. Next I am trying to track down the revolver, but everyone is selling the short stubby barrel. When i have the others, I can just stop at the hardware store and pick up rope and pipe.

    I've got the same knife on it's way to me. Bought the candlesticks and the plumbing wrench about two months ago. They are a perfect match to what we see on screen.
    As others have said, the revolver is difficult to find, might just make my own replica. Would be really hard to import one to Australia anyway.
    Just picked up the right sized pipe too. The rope can be added at anytime.
    See if you can post pics of the weapons you've got so far. Happy collecting

    Anyone able to tell me what size plumbing pipe Mr. Green had??? I am guessing 12 inches, but if anyone actually knows, that would be swell. I am looking for the OD and ID as well. Tracked down the wrench. It should be here next week. When I get the rest, I plan on making Mr. Body's suitcase to put them into. Getting closer.

    Someone else in this thread said 1 1/2 inches diameter for the pipe. That looks right from the screencap to me, so that's what i went with. The length is 18 inches i believe, but should'nt matter all that much. It can be hard to tell because someones hand is usually covering the pipe when they are holding it in the movie, this can make it difficult to judge.

    I will agree with the 1 1/2 inch dia. I did find a picture with Tim Curry holding all the weapons on a tray. If I really wanted to find out, I guess I could do some math and get closer to the real deal.

    Also, my candlestick has arrived and my wrench is going to be here any day!! FYI I looked and looked for this wrench. It has to be the real deal. I mean production had to remove as much trade markings but it is the real deal. I will take more pictures when it arrives.

    The wrench has to be a Billings Coes 12" Adjustable Monkey Wrench. The nut is the give away. It is more square than others that are out there. The Triangle logo... I am 99.9% think this is the right one! And it is all mine!

    I will take more pictures when it arrives. Perhaps do a comparison. Does anyone have any idea what kind of suitcase that Mr. Boddy had to keep all the gifts inside? I know it might be a long shot, but if you know, could you share with the class??

    Thank you!
