“Cast Away” Has Volleyball Tom Hanks The prop has now been auctioned for around 270,000 euros – to a close friend on a lonely island. In the film, the lead actor talks to “Wilson”, as the ball is named after the producer, repeatedly during his long stay to keep his mind clear. Hanks received a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his role. It was also nominated for an Oscar, which at the time went to “Gladiator” Russell Crowe.

A famous film suit was also auctioned

Auction house Prop Store announced that the ball had been given a deliberately dirty look, and that it was often in water during filming. “Wilson” has a “dark brownish-red” face on the front,” the description continued, as the BBC reported on Thursday. “The top is torn and several tobacco stems inserted to recreate the look of the hair Huh.”

Altogether more than 1100 film props were hit by the hammer at the prop house. The suit that Will Ferrell wore in “Buddy – the Christmas Elf” brought in the equivalent of 205,000 euros, almost ten times more than expected. (Best / DPA)
