Cinephiles are probably going to want to break out their wallets for this one. Stanley Kubrick’s former assistant and longtime friend Emilio D’Alessandr is holding an auction at the end of the month (via The Playlist) in which dozens of Kubrick-related memorabilia will be sold off to the public.

The Italian auction website Aste Bolaffi has the official listing for the event, which includes items like the jacket Jack Nicholson wore as Jack Torrance in “The Shining.” The jacket was chosen by Academy Award-winning costume designer Milena Canonero based on a suggestion from Nicholson himself. The designer made several copies of the jacket for the film’s shoot. The listing says the jacket being auctioned off was worn by the actor throughout the production.

“The Shining” fans may want to save their money for what is probably the most lucrative item being sold: A rare cut of the iconic horror film featuring a deleted scene never released. According to the listing, D’Alessandr’s cut features a scene in which Shelley DuVall’s Wendy carries her son Danny (Danny Lloyd) that’s incredibly rare because Kubrick “notoriously burned all the leftover footage at the conclusion of editing.” The price is estimated at $3,700.

Additional items being auctioned off include advertisement posters for “A Clockwork Orange,” the clapperboard used on “Eyes Wide Shut,” and travel bags used by Kubrick himself. The auction takes place March 27, but you can start bidding now on the items listen. Head over to the Aste Bolaffi website for the complete rundown of items.
