An auction house in Beverly Hills, Julie’s Auctions, got their hands on some old audition tapes of stars before they were famous. I love seeing these…like a young Brad Pitt auditioning for a role in Backdraft. Also auditioning for that movie that starred Billy Baldwin and Robert DeNiro, Keanu Reeves and Robert Downey Jr. The auction is April 5th and 6th also includes “archives of images from over 6000 films including more than 80,000 images from the earliest Hollywood productions — representing almost 100 years of Hollywood history. Also offered for sale are items from the personal wardrobe of Marilyn Monroe, Tippi Hedren, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra and Brittany Murphy.” For more info on the auction click here.
On Friday the Today Show ran some of the auditions. I especially love Leonardo DiCaprio auditioning for Pony Boy in The Outsiders. Do it for Johnny!!!
