Brokeback shirts sell for more than $100K

The shirts worn
by the stars of Brokeback Mountain—which
play a major part in the film's powerful
climax—garnered a record $101,100.51 for Variety, the
Children's Charity of Southern California, in a recent
eBay auction. The previous record was held by the car
used in Herbie: Fully Loaded, which sold for
$24,002. Gay philanthropist and Hollywood memorabilia
collector Tom Gregory placed the winning bid. "It's the
ultimate prop from an extraordinary movie," said
Gregory in a statement. "The fact that the proceeds
benefit Variety made it even more compelling." Variety
provides lifesaving and life-enriching assistance to abused,
addicted, physically challenged, neglected, and
underprivileged children in Southern California.
