Obi-Wan’s Robe Sold! Light-Sabre Not Included


Bonham’s costume auction in London saw a brown hooded robe go for $104,000. Worn by Alec Guiness as Obi-Wan Kenobi in the Star Wars films, the cloak was forgotten for years in a warehouse. Two anonymous telephone bidders duked it out for the costume.

The James Bond dinner jacket from Thunderball went for $64,700 and a beaten metal helmet worn by Terry Jones in Monty Python and the Holy Grail sold for $19,300, 20 times more than its pre-sale estimate.
