Sold to the highest bidder: A piece of Hollywood history

Movie buffs now have the chance to own a piece of cinematic history.

In a three-day event starting Tuesday, Profiles in History, the Calabasas, California-based auction house, will drop the hammer on nearly 2,000 items from Hollywood's past.

"Relatively speaking, especially in contrast to the fine art market, I think memorabilia is a bargain," said Brian Chanes, who culled together the items up for auction.
