Earlier this week, a New York Times feature revealed that Michelle Williams' Marilyn Monroe wig (yes, it was a wig) in "My Week With Marilyn" cost $4,000.

While there are no plans (yet) to sell the blonde locks on the open market, if it did happen, they would join a long list of movie memorabilia that have been auctioned off to fans and collectors.

From "Breakfast at Tiffany's" to "Goldfinger" to "Star Wars," some film lovers take their fandom to a whole new level by buying props from their favorite movies. (There's even an auction house called Profiles in History dedicated to selling this sort of thing.)

In honor of collectors worldwide, let's take a look at some of the most expensive movie props ever sold.
