Dan Levin says there has already been lots of interest in the Hollywood auction

Ringo Starr's 1968 Ford Mustang is attracting a lot of bids in an auction of Hollywood memorabilia.

The Beatle's cherry red vintage car which he used to drive around Los Angeles is one of the lots in Premiere Props' Hollywood Auction Extravaganza II, which also includes iconic films props and costumes, as well as outfits from music stars' tours and videos.

Dan Levin, vice president of marketing for Premiere Props, revealed: "The pieces that have been attracting the most attention - definitely Ringo Starr's car, a lot of bidding activity right now worldwide on the car.

"Michael Jackson's fedora from his Victory tour, tons of bids right now happening.

"And also we've got pieces from Star Wars, original vintage posters signed by the entire cast, that's garnering a lot of attention. Plus the original Gremlins from Gremlins 1 and 2, a lot of pre-bidding on those as well.

"Those are the things that I'm hearing we're getting a lot of buzz for."

The auction will be held on Saturday, July 30 and Sunday, July 31 at Premiere Props headquarters in El Segundo, California, but bids are already being placed at www.icollector.com and www.liveauctioneers.com.

Among the 1,200 items going under the hammer are Carrie Bradshaw's green dress from the Sex And The City movie, Justin Bieber's signed jeans and the broken sunglasses Arnold Schwarzenegger wore in Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines.

Dan said: "There's really something for everyone at this auction."

You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
