FULLERTON, Calif. - eTradeWire -- Items from the collection of award-winning Hollywood sound editor Milton Burrow, plus pieces from his sons who were also in the sound business in Hollywood, will come up for bid in a live online auction scheduled for Sunday, January 29th, by Golden Sun Auctions, Inc.

It was Clint Eastwood who gave Burrow photo stills, publicity shots and endless reels of film and sound to contribute to his own library. These are the artifacts of more than 40 years working in the film industry and more than 60 years of friendships that extended beyond his work. The collection was further brought along by his sons, Neil and Scott.

The 587-lot auction is officially titled Hollywood Memorabilia, Antiques & More. Some of the expected top-selling items feature Marilyn Monroe. These include the following:
  • A dedication shadowbox for the movie Some Like It Hot (1959), featuring images that are stills from the movie and its main characters (Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis), plus a movie lobby card. The centerpiece item is a small white purse with a gold handle that's signed by all of the above-named stars. Comes with a COA (est. $5,000-$10,000).
  • Another shadowbox, filled with some beautiful photos of Ms. Monroe, a pretty costume jewelry "diamond" bracelet and a menu that was signed by Monroe. Measures 30 inches by 40 inches and includes a COA from Art of Music Management (est. $1,000-$3,000).
  • A menu from a New Year's Eve celebration in 1957 from the Fox and Hounds Superb Dining Restaurant, signed by Monroe (to "Howard"). Remarkably, the dinner, which cost just $7.50 ($79.46 today), included an appetizer, an entrée and dessert (est. $500-$1,500).
  • A film reel from the movie Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (most likely not in its entirety), starring Monroe and Jane Russell, in a Warner Brothers cannister (est. $100-$1,000).
