11 Wonderful Things from Carrie Fisher Auction You Need to See

Carrie Fisher on the set of Star Wars: Empire Strikes Back (1980)
Carrie Fisher tragically passed away last year and there's still a disturbance in the Force from it. But there's hope. The hillside estate where Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds lived is being sold, and a number of personal items and movie memorabilia they own are being auctioned in a few weeks.

The Profiles in History auction house will sell more than 1,500 items that belonged to the two actresses, who died a day apart in December and were buried together in January. Reynolds and Fisher lived in separate houses on the property. The items are a wonderful insight into the world of Carrie Fisher and have some never-before-scene photos and other items. The whole list is great but here are some highlights.

8. Lot 1291: Carrie Fisher "Princess Leia" personal hand-annotated shooting script from The Empire Strikes Back.



Description: "Carrie Fisher 'Princess Leia' personal hand-annotated shooting script from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back. (TCF, 1980) This is Carrie Fisher’s heavily annotated on set shooting script from The Empire Strikes Back - the second chapter of the original trilogy and most critically-acclaimed film in the entire Star Wars franchise. The studio-bound and branded script is 158 pages (as paginated), with revisions dating from 10/24/78 to 2/7/79 and virtually every page stamped with red security code '501'. Missing front and back covers and first two pages (no 'Leia' dialog missing), beginning on page 2A. Ending at page 158, the last four pages are missing (when compared to March 20, 1979, revision), but the last page present in this script represents the last spoken dialogue by Princess Leia. Of particular note, every page with 'Leia' dialogue is annotated by Fisher in pencil with subtext, the underlying message being conveyed. Her analysis and resulting notes provided direction on how she should deliver her dialogue to the greatest effect. Serving as an example, among Fisher’s notes on pages 6 through 8, during the heated exchange between Han and Leia as she urges him to stay with the rebellion: 'Let’s clear up this thing right now'... 'don’t physicalize or raise voice'... 'God how you disappoint me'... 'why don’t I understand what you’re saying'... 'I don’t mind that you’re not bright. The cause is bigger than one person'... 'Aren’t you men amazing'... 'I hope we will meet again and I also hope that by then you will have grown up a little'... 'I am so disappointed in you I can’t even speak on it'... 'Enjoy your trip'. The script contains over 1,000 words in Fisher’s hand. Exhibits handling with dog-eared corners. The importance of this script cannot be overstated. It remains the finest science fiction shooting script one could ever hope to obtain. $30,000 - $50,000"
