Icons & Idols Auction: Diana’s Gowns, Sinatra’s Gun Permit & Marilyn’s Chest X-Ray

MARILYN MONROE CHEST X-RAY, EST. $1-2,000

I'm always amazed at what comes up for auction at Julien's. The New York art auctions just happened and in one night, Sotheby's brought in close to a billion dollars but at Julien's, it's not about the big bucks and in fact, most items are extremely affordable. And the best stuff is always the weirdest stuff, to me. (I have collected some oddities ... See the Rest

But now, with digital photography, they are no longer "a thing". A new exhibit, "Magnum Contact Sheets" reveals ... See the Rest

Cleopatra Swansong: Will Brad & Angelina Star Opposite In Her Last Film?

Jolie in Alexander; Taylor as Cleopatra

Angelina Jolie has taken on the lead role of Cleopatra in a reboot of the Elizabeth Taylor classic. Her love at the time, Richard Burton, played her lover in the film, Mark Anthony. Brad, please!? They are the Liz & Dick of our time, after all. This would seal the deal! The script is already written (we know the story) and she's hinted that the ... See the Rest

There's ton's of signed ... See the Rest
