In an interview with The Times of Northwest Indiana (about the upcoming HBO Liberace movie), Debbie Reynolds talks about the landmark Profiles in History auction that took place last summer, where record prices were set for vintage Hollywood costumes.
“It’s still very sad to think about.”
“I spent my life gathering my collection and I always wanted my own museum,” she said.
“But it was a dream, and dreams don’t always come true, only in songs and movies.”
The article also mentioned that a second auction never took place, which is not true. The Debbie Reynolds Auction Part 2 took place several months after the first auction on December 3, 2011. That sale did not receive the same fanfare as the first. Although prices were very good, they were not at the same caliber as those from the first auction.
