Julien's Auctions announces Hollywood Legends 2014 set for April 11th and 12th
The first issue of Playboy signed by Hugh Hefner.
BEVERLY HILLS, CA.- Julien’s Auctions, the auction house to the stars, announced an award winning cast and an iconic Hollywood restaurant to be included in the Hollywood Legends event set for Friday, April 11th and Saturday, April 12th, 2014. The Hollywood Legends auction event will take place at Julien’s Auctions Beverly Hills gallery located at 9665 Wilshire Boulevard.

Although Chasen’s restaurant had the stuff Hollywood legends are made of, it was the famous faces who began gathering there when it opened in 1936 until 1973. If the walls could talk, we would hear the voices of such iconic Hollywood celebrities as Cary Grant, Elizabeth Taylor, Frank Sinatra, Johnny Carson, Lana Turner, Groucho Marx, Jimmy Stewart, Alfred Hitchcock and even Howard Hughes. All of these stars and many more made Chasen’s famous for becoming the place to be “seen” in Hollywood and it was quickly established as “the hangout” for celebrities and Hollywood insiders.

Ladies’ Room Door from Chasen’sJulien’s Auctions will offer remarkable artifacts from the legendary venue including Chasen’s dining chairs, arm chairs, wall sconces, serving Items, Chasen’s Yamaha Piano and even its doors and window shutters. A pair of two matching panel oak restroom doors with a brass plaque marked “Ladies” will also be offered. The Women’s restroom at Chasen’s was famous as the site of countless celebrity nose powdering sessions as well as being the place where Donna Summer penned notes for her hit song “She Works Hard for the Money,” which was inspired by longtime Chasen’s bathroom attendant Onetta Johnson.

It’s a cast of stars that only the world’s biggest directors would dream of when it comes to mentioning the highlights of the auction. From the Golden Era of Hollywood to today’s biggest and brightest names, Hollywood Legends is set to entertain. The vast array of memorabilia includes personal effects, costumes, artwork, jewelry, scripts, animation cels, photographs, furnishings and more.
