Bogart and Bird (1941)
Today at Bonhams in New York City, the statuette of the iconic “black bird” from John Huston’s noir classic brought in a whopping $3.5 million at auction after a protracted bidding war between a bidder in the room and an unidentified party on the phone. The remote buyer, whose bids were delivered by Bonhams’ Director of Entertainment Memorabilia Catherine Williamson, emerged victorious, and a cheer arose from the assembled – and somewhat stunned – crowd. (The final sale price, including Bonhams’ service fees, will be $4,085,000.)
