Oddjob's Hat Sells At Auction
The most terrifying hat in movie history went under the hammer for $33,600 (GBP18,670) in Los Angeles on Saturday (17JUN06) when JAMES BOND villain ODDJOB's derby was sold at auction. The steel-rimmed hat, worn by actor HAROLD SAKATA, who played henchman Oddjob in 1964 film GOLDFINGER, was bought by 007 memorabilia hunter ANTHONY PUGLIESE III. He plans to display the famous derby at a new pop culture museum in Florida. Other highlights of the Julien's Auction sale included a belt ELVIS PRESLEY wore during his 1972 concert in Honolulu, which sold for a staggering $66,000 (GBP36,700) - over six times its expected price, and the red gown DUSTIN HOFFMAN wore as a cross-dressing soap star in TOOTSIE, which fetched $26,400 (GBP14,670).
