Get an inside view from the life of Joe Maddalena, owner of Profiles in History and the world's largest auctioneer of original movie, television and pop culture relics.
Hollywood Treasure follows Joe as he navigates his way through the intricate world of collecting showbiz and pop culture memorabilia: from the Wicked Witch of the West hat and the vintage Chitty Chitty Bang Bang car to Mary Poppins' carpet bag and other unforgettable props and costumes.
Each episode takes viewers into the fascinating world of showbiz and pop culture memorabilia, with the season opener traveling to "Middle-earth" and featuring actor Sean Astin’s Lord of the Rings collection.
Upcoming episodes will showcase the Whitney Houston costume from The Bodyguard; the house in American Horror Story; items from the television series Lost; the General Lee from Dukes of Hazzard; the original camera George Lucas used to film Star Wars and Maddalena’s personal Holy Grail -- the lost pair of ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz.
One man's prop is another man's treasure so Joe is willing to do whatever it takes to get a piece of Hollywood history.
