ACTION STAR PERSONALLY CONSIGNS MORE THAN 30 PIECES OF ENTERTAINMENT MEMORABILIA
Bruce Willis is one of the most bankable Hollywood stars, often grouped with legends such as Clint Eastwood and Paul Newman.
Willis’ career was launched when he played detective David Addison on the 1980s TV hit Moonlighting. He then made the jump to the big screen, becoming a bona fide movie star with Die Hard, Pulp Fiction and The Sixth Sense. His more recent work includes The Expendables and Moonrise Kingdom. He’s currently finishing work on the remake of the 1974 classic Death Wish.
“Mr. Willis is among Hollywood’s biggest stars,” says Elyse Luray of Heritage Auctions’ Trust and Estates department. “This multi-award-winning actor reached worldwide fame over 30 years ago, and has maintained a huge fan base with his classic movies and box-office draw.”
More than 30 pieces of memorabilia and personal property from the collection of Bruce Willis, consigned directly by the actor, are included in Heritage’s entertainment auction scheduled for March 18, 2017.
Included is a 1959 William Morris Agency agreement signed by the Three Stooges (Moe Howard, Larry Fine and Joe DeRita). “I love the Stooges,” Willis told GQ magazine in 2013. “I have formative memories of watching them with my brother. … Any guy who wants to have a well-rounded man life is not complete until he accepts the mechanics and zaniness of the Stooges.”
