Considering it’s 2014, the plot and pacing of Action Comics #1 might not thrill you, but it’s got significance in an entirely different way. It features the first appearance of Superman, a superhero who you may have heard of. The issue was published in June of 1938, and one near-mint condition copy just was sold at auction for $3.2 million bucks.

Rather than going up at Christie’s or Sotheby’s, the comic went to bid on eBay, and a portion of the proceeds went to the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation.

It’s thought that there are no more than 50 copies of this comic in existence, so it’s no surprise that habitually cash-strapped Nicolas Cage picked one up for $2.16 million a few years ago. Look like he’s got an eye for investment, as I’m guessing that this rare comic is worth far more when its previous owner is eccentric actor Nicolas Cage.

Spend All Your Money To Reunite The Cast Of ‘Fresh Prince’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/spend-all-your-money-to-reunite-the-cast-of-fresh-prince/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/spend-all-your-money-to-reunite-the-cast-of-fresh-prince/#comments Fri, 25 Feb 2011 05:54:17 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=29807 Win a charity auction and attend a private dinner reunion of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" cast. I can sense you doing the Carlton as you read this.

Empty your bank account. Beg your parents for cash. Go to a whole lot of 7-11′s and “Take A Penny” thousands of times. If you can beat the current high bid of $7500, you win a charity auction to attend a private dinner reunion of “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air” cast. I can sense you doing the Carlton as you read this.

Karyn Parsons, aka Hillary Banks, aka Ashley Banks’s sister, my top make-out candidate from grades 6 through 8, has organized a charity auction to benefit her organization Sweet Blackberry. Here’s Parson explaining what the winner of the best auction ever gets:

“It’s a dining experience with Alfonso Ribeiro [Carlton], Tatyana Ali [Ashley], James Avery [Uncle Phil] and myself, and a meet-and-greet with Will Smith. Will’s gonna come by and hang for a minute and meet the winner.”

Will’s gonna “hang out for a minute?” Oh, that’s right, he’s too busy transforming his brats into billion dollar hair-whippers to have a bowl of soup for an hour with his embarrassing old sit-com buddies. You’ve changed, Will.

Still, who needs the Fresh Prince when you’ve got Uncle Phil to yell at you, Carlton to dance with you, and Ashley Banks to stare at, until she feels uncomfortable and makes any excuse she can think of to leave.

“Any time on ‘Fresh Prince’ when we all had to sit down at the table together, we called them table scenes. We couldn’t get up, so we’d be there for hours. In those scenes, the outtakes are ridiculous,” Ali tells us. “We would literally be laughing ’til we cried. So I would expect somebody coming into that to expect to be at a table scene.”

Whatever you say, Tatyana Ali. Whatever you say…

You can bid here. If you win, tell the Banks’ I say “hello” and “remember the time when Hilary posed for Playboy and Uncle Phil freaked out? That was great.” (PopEater)

There are times when you’re driving your car and you realize: “I need more secret compartments for movie weapons.” Well, sorry to tell you this, but you missed your chance to own the customized truck Sylvester Stallone drives in The Expendables, which sold at an Arizona auction for $134,000. The modified 1955 truck features a Ford 347cid Edelbrock engine, race seats, and “hidden compartments to hold movie weapons.” Just to hold? For $134K, I think it would have been nice if they at least threw in a few glocks, an M79 and a lightsaber.

Also up for auction were cars driven by Evel Knievel, Alice Cooper and Elvis. The theme of the auction must have been “Big In The 70s.” No word yet whether the Mystery Machine was on the block. (TMZ)

Here’s a bigger picture. So sleeky…
