Scaramanga's shirt worn by Sir Christopher Lee in James Bond movie The Man With Golden Gun and a Golden Ticket from Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory starring Gene Wilder are also among the movie memorabilia that will be on display at Vue Westfield cinema in London in October, in the run up to the sale.

The pink hoverboard Michael J Fox used in the Back To The Future sequel and the leather outfit work by Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2: Judgement Day will be part of the exhibition which opens on October 1 and runs for two weeks until October 16.

Scaramanga's shirt is a bargain at £7,000, and while Willy Wonka's Golden Ticket may have been priceless to Charlie Bucket, valuers estimate its worth at £15-20k.
