Auctions on the Silver Screen

Here at Swann we may be divided into different departments, but whether we nerd out over books or prints, maps or photographs, we all come together to appreciate a good movie. After last night's Swann Galleries Film Club viewing of How to Steal a Million, we decided to compile a list of some of our favorite auctions in films.
