Modelling shots of a teenage Angelina Jolie were big hits at a vintage Hollywood photo auction last weekend (26 - 27 Mar'10), selling for more than six times their expected sale price.
Some of the Harry Langdon shots were featured in a lot that also included rare shots of Raquel Welch, Halle Berry, Richard Burton, George Clooney and Farrah Fawcett. These went under the hammer for $122,400.
A Profiles in History spokesman says, "They garnered much bidding interest. They sold individually for over $2,500 each - more than six times their expected sale price."
Other highlights included an iconic shot of actress Jean Harlow posing on a bear rug, shot by George Hurrell for Vanity Fair, which sold for $60,000.
