"Star Wars" came to "Hollywood Treasure" (Tue., 10 p.m. ET on Syfy) Tuesday night as auctioneer Joe Maddalena got his hands on a camera that was used to shoot the first installment of the epic movie franchise.
"Star Wars" star Carrie Fisher’s brother Todd brought him the Panavision camera, and Todd knew it was valuable. So valuable, in fact, that he set his own high reserve price: "I want you to give me a guarantee of $100,000."
How much for a piece of "Star Wars" history? It sold for a jaw-dropping $520,000, which, Maddalena said, made it "the most expensive 'Star Wars' collectible item of all time."
