“Hollywood Legends” will take place July 15-17 in Beverly Hills and on the Julien’s Auctions website. Items that will be available include Captain America’s shield from “Captain America: The First Avenger,” a two-piece Givenchy ensemble worn by Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and one of the six original Stormtrooper helmets from “Star Wars: A New Hope,” The Associated Press reported.

Also included in the auction will be the costumes Marilyn Monroe and Jane Russell wore in “Gentlemen Prefer Blondes,” the “Mjölnir” Hammer from “Thor: The Dark World” and a collection of props used on-screen in the Harry Potter movies, including a “Nimbus 2001″ broomstick used by Draco Malfoy in “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.”

The auction will also feature some never-before-seen items from some celebrity estates, including scripts marked by editor Anne V. Coates for “Lawrence of Arabia,” “Out of Sight” and “The Elephant Man,” the AP reported.

Kim Kardashian’s appearance at the Met Gala wearing a Marilyn Monroe dress has the event’s organizers suggesting that there may be heightened interest in some of items for sale at the auction, according to The Hollywood Reporter. A gown Monroe wore in the 1954 movie “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” as well as costume jewelry and personal items from Monroe’s wardrobe, will all be part of the auction.

One of the largest pieces available is a yacht: the original 105-foot “Sobra Las Olas” from the 1957 movie “Pal Joey,” starring Frank Sinatra. The ship currently has its original first-generation diesel engine, according to the auction house.

The public exhibition of the items begins July 11 at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills.
