IIRC Harry Anderson from Night Court has one. The story is that they used one in his judges office set. He found out it was real and swapped it with one he had at home.

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.

4 mllion,  I think that is what it would cost if it were made from real gold and gems.

assume it weighs 40 lbs x 16oz x 1400 (goldprice plus prepwork)
 plus 3 millon in rubies,emeralds and diamonds.  20 stones the size maltballs should do it.

I think Joe's Grill in San Francisco might have something to say about all this. They had several of the prop Falcons, but they kept getting stolen. They finally got a 75 lbs. replica made and haven't had that problem since./Joe's was Dashiel Hammett's hangout of choice and sits on the corner where Miles Archer was sbot.

Too bad, Fark thread patrons. You could have made this a "femme fatale named Brigid" thread, but ooh noo, you had to go back to the same ol' well.

That's funny, I thought Casper Gutman had it until someone else got it at the last second.

I think I saw Gutman giving sidelong glances at the bid winner for the rest of the night.

Interesting.
Its sold at auction for more than the "high end" in the movie.
I think Gutman mentioned Sam's cut could (25%) could be up to $250,000.

but could it do the Kessel run in less than 12 parsecs?

/what?

Fine, if you want to bring your Star Wars into a crime novel setting, just know this:

Han had better shoot first, because Sam Spade would knock Solo out cold, with one punch. While Han came to, Spade would be working up an elaborate triple cross that would all end with Han, Jaba the Hutt, and Boba Fett all turned over to the Empire.

(That would still be a better movie than Return of the Jedi.)
