Bidding for Time
Judd Tully
From the Print Edition:
J.P. Morgan, Mar/Apr 00

(continued from page 4)

For the tradition-minded, a signed photograph of smoky screen legend Humphrey Bogart, elegantly suited and clutching a cigarette (est. $1,500-$2,500), competes alongside a sepia-toned, signed photo of silent screen heartthrob Rudolph Valentino, outfitted in a striped turban for his title role as a desert chieftain in the 1921 film, The Sheik (est. $2,000-$3,000). Despite the period look of the pose, Valentino is sporting a circa 1920 wristwatch.  

On the edgy side, a decidedly amateurish group of unpublished photographs by the late rock icon Jim Morrison, taken during his student days at UCLA, will tempt die-hard fans (est. $1,500-$2,500).  

The sales preview at Butterfield's Sunset Boulevard showroom from March 10 to 12 and the partially illustrated catalogueis available for viewing on-line at Or contact Michael Schwartz, Butterfield's entertainment memorabilia specialist, at (323) 850-7500.   --JT
