Bill Murray’s Ghostbusters II Mantle, Titanic Figure, and More to Go to Auction


Propstore is set to hold its London 2022 Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction next month, with several props and on-screen items used in the production of Ghostbusters and Ghostbusters II available for collectors.

Among the exhibits, the most likely centerpiece is the green Henry Cotton coat worn by Bill Murray and Sigourney Weaver in the 1989 sequel, along with a Titantic miniature and scale models of Slimer and the Scoleri brothers.

Below is the full rundown, consisting of photos, descriptions and final estimates.

Lot # 162: GHOSTBUSTERS II (1989) – Coat of Peter Venkman (Bill Murray)

Coat of Peter Venkman (Bill Murray) from Ivan Reitman’s comic sequel Ghostbusters II. Venkman wore his green Henry Cotton coat in several scenes in the film, and Dana Barrett (Sigourney Weaver) also wore it when she tried to save her son from Janosz (Peter MacNicol).

The jacket has a wool lining and four buttons on the front. There are some minor stains on the front and on the left wrist.

Estimate: £4,000-6,000 (US$4,500-6,800)

Lot # 161: GHOSTBUSTERS II (1989) – Screen Matching Titanic Model Miniature

A screen-matching miniature model of the RMS Titanic from Ivan Reitman’s supernatural comedy sequel Ghostbusters II. The Titanic and its ghostly passengers have appeared on New York’s docks after the devilish mud beneath the city’s streets began causing widespread chaos. The model corresponds to the one seen on the screen, identified by the holes and the marks towards the front.

Built for production by the artists of Industrial Light & Magic, the miniature depicts the forward section of the ship and is primarily made of a sheet of resin mounted on a wooden frame, with a sculpted biscuit mousse inside to form and stability. The ship is intentionally distressed to look like it has been on the bottom of the Atlantic for decades, with a large gaping hole on its right side.

There are a few small lights and some clear plexiglass rods on the bridge through which light would have emanated, giving off a ghostly glow, although they are no longer functional.

The vessel has some wear from age and use, and many of the resin panels and railings are no longer present on the sides of the vessel. Dimensions: 155cm x 53cm x 140cm (61″ x 20 3/4″ x 55″)

Estimate: £8,000-12,000 ($9,000-13,500)

Lot # 163: GHOSTBUSTERS II (1989) – Slimer and Scoleri Brothers Model Set

These mockups were created by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) as design references for the character puppets. The Slimer model is made from brown resin mounted on a black base, while the white Brothers plaster models are painted gray. ILM sculptor Mark Siegel and the date “10/88” are engraved on the back of a Scoleri. Each model has scratches and paint chips. Dimensions (largest): 19.25cm x 19.25cm x 15.25cm (7.5″ x 7.5″ x 6″); (smallest): 16.75cm x 10.25cm x 11.43cm (6.5″ x 4″ x 4.5”)
