Superman’s (Christopher Reeve) wig from Richard Donner’s superhero film Superman. Wigs were used throughout the film, as newspaper reporter Clark Kent secretly transformed into Superman, changing his hairstyle and donning his iconic blue, red and yellow suit.
The wig consists of slicked-back dark brown synthetic hair punched onto a light champagne-coloured mesh cap. It features Superman’s signature kiss-curl at the front and his parting on the left side – the opposite side to his parting while in the guise of Clark Kent. A label on the inside of the wig reads “Chris Reeves [sic], Superman No. 3” in black ink, and there is an additional “Wig Specialities” label on the wig’s interior. The lot comes on a custom-made display and exhibits minimal wear from production use. Dimensions (displayed): 18 cm x 18 cm x 30 cm (7″ x 7″ x 11¾”)
Estimate: £3,000 – 5,000 M
