Categories: Movie Props
Date Sold: 22/08/1970
A phone box from Sidney J. Furie’s superhero sequel Superman IV: The Quest for Peace. Clark Kent (Christopher Reeve) used a phone box in a subway station to transform into Superman and save Lois Lane (Margot Kidder) and a train full of passengers after the driver had a heart attack and the train went out of control. This phone box is screen-matched to the one in the film by the distinctively ripped paper adverts adhered to its inner surfaces.
The phone box is made of wood, and has a sliding bifold door with glass screens. The lighting in the ceiling illuminates when connected to mains power. It features a wooden bench and a metal coin-operated telephone receiver with handset. Paper adverts and graffiti cover the inside walls and the box has been intentionally distressed to look well used. This lot has some additional wear from production use and age, including scratches and scuffs. There has been a buildup of grime on some parts of the box. Dimensions: 78 cm x 76.5 cm x 213 cm (30 3/4″ x 30″ x 83 3/4″)
£3,000 – 5,000
