RKO large ram’s head stand from Citizen Kane, Star Trek and other productions
This large bronze and ebonized wood antique stand was in numerous productions over the years and can be seen in many classics of both the large and small screen. Its earliest use is in the Paris nightclub at the beginning of The Gay Divorcee, where Astaire dances for his supper. It was then modified by removing the upper and lower ebonized portions for The Last Days of Pompeii the following year. Astaire and Rogers dance between the pair in a similar cafe, in the same city, in The Story of Vernon and Irene Castle in 1939. It also appears on the stage, painted white, in Citizen Kane during Susan’s opera debut. A pair of them flank Kay Kyser’s stage in the musical mystery romp You’ll Find Out!, the only teaming of Karloff, Lorre and Lugosi. It is in the hotel lobby with Ava Gardner in My Forbidden Past, where she goes to see the lawyer. That same year it appears in the Season 1 episode of The Adventures of Superman entitled “Mystery in Wax” in the Museum display. It is in the Star Trek episodes “Bread and Circuses”, “Plato’s Stepchildren” and “Requiem for Methuselah”. An important film artifact. Measures 48 in. tall.
