Can Carrie Fisher & Debbie Reynolds Keep Mum About New 'Star Wars'?
By David Weiner
Is Carrie Fisher giving up any details about her role in Star Wars: Episode VII? Is Princess Leia going to break out that metal bikini? How about the hair -- will she once again sport those buns? ET's Rob Marciano tried to get the goods when he sat down with Carrie, her brother Todd, and their famous mom Debbie Reynolds. Watch the video to see what he learns!
You can't knock Rob for trying, seeing as Carrie just returned from London for some Star Wars: Episode VII planning sessions with co-stars Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford and director J.J. Abrams. But the focus of the evening was on Debbie's massive collection of Hollywood memorabilia, amassed over the last 50 years or so, that's up for auction this weekend. Some of the incredible highlights include Charlie Chaplin's hat, Orson Welles' coat from Citizen Kane, and Grace Kelly's outfit from Mogambo.
The idea was to create the ultimate movie memorabilia museum, but Debbie's dream unfortunately did not pan out. Now, with a hefty thanks to Todd's efforts, the public can get their hands on everything from classic movie posters and lobby cards from movies like Singin' in the Rain and the original Star Wars trilogy to costume design sketches, Harpo's hat from the Marx Brothers, a Forrest Gump outfit worn by Tom Hanks, original Planet of the Apes display heads, a movie camera that shot scenes from Star Wars, To Catch a Thief and Mary Poppins, and much, much more.
