    How sad for Debbie that she had to sell these incredible collections…. I hope they went to people who will love and appreciate them….

    By the way, you know why the three musketeers costume didn't include the hat? Because I've owned it for 12 years! I also have the vest he wore in the good morning scene among other pieces…

  • Hi, Marye

    Re: Gene's hat, vest, etc., that's fantastic! Any pics?!

    Re: whom the memorabilia went to, see Anne Thompson: "Now the collection of memorabilia has been broken up via some record sales; many of the valuable pieces of Tinseltown history went to Saudi Arabia and Japan." More here:

    Thanks for stopping by! And again, pics?? =)
