Tag: Midnight In Paris (1-3 of 3)

Are you as smitten with 'Midnight in Paris' as Owen Wilson's character was with the Golden Age?

The nostalgic fumes of 1920’s Paris in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris are so intoxicating that it is difficult not to develop a contact high. Who wouldn’t want to hob-knob with Hemingway and the Fitzgeralds while romancing a celebrating art groupie played by Marion Cotillard? Fans of the film who lack the imagination of Owen Wilson’s Gil Pender — or some time machine — can at least have a piece of the Oscar-nominated production. Gilt.com is currently selling memorabilia from the film, including vintage-style cigarette holders, DVDs signed by the director himself, and recreations of Toulouse-Lautrec’s sketches (right).

Several items have already sold out — kudo’s to the chap who purchased Adriana’s diary for $2,000 — but you can still pick up a piece of Woody Allen’s biggest box-office hit. Gil’s manuscript is just sitting there for $1,500! Don’t you want to know if his novel about a nostalgia store was any good? Plus, all net proceeds go to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation.
