As I mention on the Ben-Hur Memorabilia threads here, I found out about this November 25th auction of movie memorabilia curated by TCM from TCM host Robert Osborne as he was introducing the latest showing of Soylent Green on the TCM channel earlier tonight. Here's the item which prompted my search for other memorabilia and caused me to find all the Ben-Hur stuff:

Lot 275: A Soylent Green can and cracker http://www.bonhams.com/auctions/21427/lot/275/

Image US$ 500 - 700 // £310 - 430

Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, 1973. A tin can with a label reading, "New! Delicious / Soylent / Green / Miracle food / of high energy / plankton / gathered from / the oceans / of the world." Created for promotional purposes, similar cans were featured in ads for the film. Together with a prop piece of Soylent Green, being a square piece of balsa wood painted lime green, and a small "City of New York Police Dept" sticker. Can: 2 1/2 x 4 3/4 in. (pretty expensive can & cracker; even though it's probably one of the cheapest items in the whole auction).

Oh man, I'd love one of those! Too bad I won't be able to afford it even at such a decent price from a classic.

Don't get upset man, those who can afford it may not be greater fans.

Well, you weren't the only one really interested in that particular item (Soylent can & cracker)... I just checked to see the auction results; all the other items sold for about what was expected/estimated, but this Soylent item sold for $2,250 !!! - or, about quadruple of what was expected! So, I wouldn't get concerned about not being able to spend $500 for it... it went for way more than that anyway..! :soylent: :soylent: :soylent: :soylent: :soylent: :soylent: :soylent: :soylent: :soylent: :soylent:
