"It is truly a great privilege for us at Profiles in History to be holding this auction – Debbie and Carrie were both dear friends for many years," said Profiles in History CEO Joe Maddalena.  

"I hope fans from around the world have an opportunity to acquire a memento from their remarkable lives and careers. They are both missed."

Each had a phenomenal career in the movie industry, with Reynolds co-starring in Singing in the Rain alongside Gene Kelly.

Fisher is most famous for her iconic turn as Princess Leia in the Star Wars franchise.

Her memorabilia includes a life-size replica of C-3P0 and a personalised chair from the set of Return of the Jedi.

Reynolds, meanwhile, was the owner of one of the most celebrated collections of movie memorabilia in the world.

She began picking up pieces from classic movies at studio lot auctions during the 1970s.

Most of those pieces were sold off in a major sale in 2011, including Marilyn Monroe's dress from The Seven Year Itch, which made $5.4m. Still, a few important lots remain and are included in this auction – including a dress she wore in Singing in the Rain and a harp from Cleopatra.

Todd Fisher, Reynolds’ son and Fisher’s brother, said: “My mother and sister were magnificent collectors, they amassed an amazing and diverse collection in their lifetimes.

“The size and scope of their collection rivals most museums.

“So in keeping with my mother’s wishes we have decided to share part of their magnificent collection with all their friends and fans.”

We have a great selection of movie memorabilia for sale.
