"Star Wars" fans looking to get their hands on a piece of history would be wise to check out Profiles in History's two-day Debbie Reynolds auction on May 17-18. Reynolds, who is Fisher's mother, is auctioning off 20 personal "outtake photos" from Fisher's time on the original "Star Wars" trilogy. (That's some good timing, as it was just announced that Fisher will reprise the role of Princess Leia in "Star Wars: Episode VII.") The pictures, some of which were uploaded to Imgur, can be seen via embed below, but first take note of the auction catalog blurb, which reads like "Star Wars" Madlibs:
Vintage gelatin-silver glossy approx. 8 x 10 in. custom prints (20) of Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Treat Williams, and others, taken between scenes on the set of Star Wars films. Includes candid publicity shots joking with her co-stars, and attending a Star Wars themed polo match, posing with entire principal cast in street clothes (signed to Debbie Reynolds by David Prowse) plus an additional color publicity portrait of Darth Vader signed by David Prowse. Majority bear agency or photographer’s credit stamp on verso. Ex-libris Carrie Fisher’s personal collection. Very fine. $200 - $300
Treat Williams! (Here's why that's funny.) "Star Wars"-themed polo matches! David Prowse, the man inside the Darth Vader suit, signing autographs for Debbie Reynolds. We'll take one oral history of these photos, please. More information on the auction can be found here.
