Manny P. here…

   The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has expressed displeasure over the expected auction of 18 Oscars awarded through 1947. Nate D. Sanders Fine Autographs and Memorabilia will be consigning the golden statuettes. A winner’s agreement was put in place by the Academy banning the sale of Oscars given out after 1950, which means the film guild cannot legally stop the proposed public purchases.

   Awards from the films include Cavalcade, Skippy, Citizen Kane, Wuthering Heights, Going My Way, The Yearling, How Green was My ValleyThe Best Years of Our Lives, The More the Merrier, and A Double Life.  These included Picture, Actor (Ronald Colman)Color Art Direction,  Original Screenplay, Black & White Color Cinematography, Director, Film Editing, Supporting Actor (Charles Coburn), and Music.

   The Academy bidding begins Tuesday at 5:15p (pst).

Until next time>                               “never forget”
