Clark Kent’s (Christopher Reeve) wig from Richard Donner’s superhero film Superman. Wigs were used throughout the film, as Superman took the guise of mild-mannered newspaper reporter Clark Kent, so he could blend in with the citizens of Metropolis.
The wig consists of dark brown synthetic hair punched onto a light champagne-coloured mesh cap with a parting on the right side (Reeve wore a wig with a left-side parting when he transformed into Superman). A label on the inside of the wig reads “Chris Reeves [sic], Clark Kent No. 1” in black ink, and there is an additional “Wig Specialities” label on the interior. The lot comes on a custom-made display and exhibits minimal wear from production use. Dimensions (displayed): 20 cm x 20 cm x 28 cm (8″ x 8″ x 11″)
Estimate: £2,000 – 3,000 M
