A volleyball from a movie with Tom Hanks was auctioned for 270,000 euros

LondonIn “Cast Away – Verschollen”, volleyball becomes a close friend of Tom Hanks on a secluded island – the prop has now been auctioned for approximately €270,000. In the movie, the lead actor talks to “Wilson,” as the ball is called by the manufacturer’s name, repeatedly during his long stay in order to keep his mind clear. Hanks received a Golden Globe Award for Best Actor for his role. He was also nominated for an Academy Award, which at that time went to “Wrestler” Russell Crowe.

Auction house Prop Store announced that the ball was intentionally given a sloppy look, often in the water during filming. In the description, the BBC said, Wilson has a “dark brown and red” face on the forehead. “The top is torn and a number of tobacco stalks are inserted to recreate the look of the hair.”

Volleyball “Wilson” has something similar to the face and hairstyle.

In total, more than 1,100 film props for Hammer are shown at the Prop House. The suit worn by Will Ferrell in the movie “Buddy – The Christmas Elf” fetched the equivalent of 205,000 euros, nearly ten times what was expected.
