|Movie/ TV Series:||What Women Want|
|Object:||Darcy McGuire’s (Helen Hunt) Telly Award|
An awards trophy used in the production of Nancy Myers’ romantic comedy What Women Want. Involved in a freak accident, failing marketing guru Nick Marshall (Mel Gibson) acquires the power to hear the thoughts of all the women around him. This award and others like it can be seen in Darcy’s office at the fictional advertising agency Sloane Curtis throughout the film. The award is made to look like an angel diving forward. Made of metal with a polished chrome-like finish, the base is made of plastic with an engraved plaque reading “1992; Telly Award; UPS; Darcy McGuire”. Displaying some minor corrosion and wear from use and time spent in storage, the award remains in overall good condition.
In 1998, Prop Store founder Stephen Lane’s love for movies led him to begin hunting for the same props and costumes that were used to create his favourite films. He found that he could not only provide collectors with access to their most coveted pieces, but also establish archival standards for this new, pop-culture hybrid of fine art and memorabilia collecting—prop art.
Once Stephen assembled his dream team of like-minded movie fanatics, Prop Store set out like a band of movie archaeologists, looking to locate, research and preserve the treasure troves of important artifacts that hid in dark, sometimes forgotten corners all over the world.
Now, more than twenty years later, the prop hobby and Prop Store are thriving. With over seventy employees between our offices in London and Los Angeles and over 25,000 combined square feet of archived props and costumes, we’ve become the busiest and most trusted authority in the hobby.
Thinking of starting your own collection? Give us a call or e-mail and we’ll arrange a tour through one of our incredible galleries so that you can see the limitless possibilities that await.
The reality of owning an authentic prop or costume from your favourite movie could be just a call or click away…
