Queen Christina marked the triumphant return of Garbo to the big screen after an 18-month hiatus. While on holiday in Sweden, the actress read about the life of the monarch written by Salka Viertel. The film follows the young Christina who ascends to the throne in 1632 at the age of six and must make the ultimate decision at age 28 whether to marry a suitable husband or abdicate for love.

One of the most exclusive lots Profiles in History is offering is this Oscar for Best Picture presented in 1936 to producer Irving Thalberg for MGM's Mutiny on the Bounty. The movie, starring Charles Laughton and Clark Gable, was based on historic events in the late 1780s and follows a ship's crew that stages a mutiny against its harsh captain and escapes to Tahiti.

Sean Connery wore this suit as James Bond in You Only Live Twice (1967). The gray wool herringbone two-piece suit was made by Anthony Sinclair, a famed British tailor who went on to design all of Connery's James Bond suits.

You Only Live Twice (1967) was loosely based on the Ian Fleming novel and the screenplay was written by Roald Dahl. In the cinematic hit, James Bond (Connery) travels to Japan to investigate US and Soviet disappearances during the Cold War.

This Hero "Nautilus" crewman "baldy style" dive helmet is from the Disney film 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954) The film's production designer was the legendary Harper Goff, who designed Disneyland. This lot is particularly rare because it does not have a "crown" top like most of the Nautilus diver's helmets and only five of these "baldy style" helmets were created for the film.

The movie, based on Jules Verne's novel, was produced by Walt Disney himself in 1954 and was a major box office hit. It followed a professor and his assistant who joined a Navy expedition to the Pacific Ocean to search for a violent sea monster who was attacking cargo ships.

Barbra Streisand's "Dolly Levi" costume from Hello Dolly! (1969) includes a rose-colored wool high-waist open jacket, white linen lace blouse and floor-length paneled skirt. It designed from period outfits from the 1890s (when the movie takes place) and was worn in the opening scenes of the beloved musical film, which first debuted on Broadway.

This Starfleet tunic is embellished with insignia and rank braid and was worn in Star Trek: The Original Series (1966-69) by William Shatner who portrayed Captain James Kirk in the Star Trek series for almost 30 years.
