The iconic balsa wood from the 1997 film "Titanic" recently fetched an impressive $718,750 at Heritage Auctions' "Treasures from Planet Hollywood" event. This ornate construction, often dubbed a door, was actually part of the door frame over the entrance to the ship's first-class lounge, noting that it beat out some of cinema's most famous props, including Indiana Jones' bullwhip from Temple of Doom and Jack Nicholson's axe from The Shining.

Additionally, Kate Winslet sold her chiffon dress from the film's final act for $125,000. At that point, it seems the debate has been reignited for these fans, who just can't come to terms with the fact that both Jack and Rose could have fit on the plank. So, lastly, that debate was once again on the internet last year on the 25th anniversary of the movie. This director, James Cameron, had tested this with a team of scientists and stuntmen, and he said that Jack may have survived, but the amount of variables is a lot to consider, such as Jack's character and his way of being selfless in making decisions.

Other notable props from the film included Harrison Ford's Temple of Doom whip, which set a franchise record at $525,000, and a set of three Sijons from the same film sold for $100,000. In The Last Crusade, a carpenter's cup fetched $87,500 for the Holy Grail. Bill Murray's red-rose bowling ball from Kingpin sold for $350,000, and Nicholson's axe from The Shining fetched $125,000. Sneaky shaving cream cans from Jurassic Park, which was used as a hiding facility for dinosaur embryos, sold for $125,000, while Tobey Maguire's black symbiote suit from Spider-Man 3 went for a record $250,000.
