    The Beatles: Victor Spinetti's Fur Hat from "Help!" (1965). Vintage fur men's hat (likely rabbit), worn by Victor Spinetti in his role as as Dr. Foot in the Beatles' 1965 film "Help!" Shown prominently during the skiing sequences of the film, accompanying the hat is a handwritten affidavit on Spinetti's 4 x 6 personal stationery that reads, "This is to certify that I wore this fur hat all through the skiing sequences I was involved in in 'Help'. Victor Spinetti - January 11, 1984." Additionally, also included in this lot is an original 7 x 9 black and white glossy photograph featuring Spinetti wearing the hat in the film, inscribed to the individual who originally acquired the hat, "For Robert, Who now has my hat. All Love, Victor Spinetti, March 2, 1984." Movie props from Beatle films -- especially ones as prominent as this hat -- have rarely surfaced in the market. From The Tom Fontaine Music Memorabilia Collection.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
