Me Want. BAD!!!

I read on Ask The Cool Cookie's blog that Debbie Reynolds will begin auctioning off her store load of Hollywood memorabilia and costumes.  On the one hand this make me sad.  On the other hand, she's got some fabulous shit up for auction!

Of course I saw the item of my dreams.  It would be this:

Doesn't look like much on the hangar, I know.  But it just happens to be the Matador suit of lights that Rudolph Valentino wore in "Blood And Sand"!!! 

The site of the studio lot where this was filmed is on my tour route.  It only seems right that I should own it, right?

So if you happen to enjoy this blog, and you happen to be very well off.........

The auction is in June.

I can tell you this, Profiles In History puts out a museum quality auction catalog. They are worth every penny.
