This is a package you won't want to miss that is only offered by Scripophily.com. This package consists of 10 different notes of prop money that was specially made for movies and used by major studios for Motion Picture and TV Productions. These notes were acquired from Ellis Props & Graphics who was the oldest (since 1908) and largest prop supply house in Hollywood until closing their doors last year.
Certificate of Authenticity
from Ellis Props
If you have ever been involved in Movie or TV Production in Los Angeles, it is almost certain youve had dealings with Ellis Props and Graphics Partners, or Ellis Mercantile as most old-timers call it. Ellis Mercantile was established as a pawn shop in 1908. When a customer needing a glass eye for one of the earliest movie productions suggested that he rent the glass eye instead of purchasing it, the rental business was started. Over the years, Ellis props have been used on countless famous movies and well-known TV productions. Ben-Hur, Cleopatra, Spartacus, The Titanic, Get Smart and Wild Wild West to name but a few. Ellis, owned by the Tapestry Group, last year closed shop, due to failing profits combined with runaway production concerns. Over five days in early June 2000, nearly a century worth of movie props were auctioned off at the Universal Hilton and via the Internet. Everything from Ellis 40,000 square feet of props went on the block. Attendees could bid on antiques and collectibles such as an operating Gatling gun from circa 1872, used in Clint Eastwoods The Outlaw Josey Wales, life preservers from The Titanic, the baby carriage from De Palmas The Untouchables, light sabers from Star Wars, the umbrella phone from Get Smart, as well as movie used
