BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Debbie Reynolds still knows how to make a splash.
She was a teenage charmer opposite Gene Kelly in “Singin’ in the Rain,” earned an Oscar nomination for her gutsy character in “The Unsinkable Molly Brown” and, at 79, is going strong as a nightclub and theater performer.
On Saturday, Reynolds will demonstrate her flair with an auction of movie memorabilia she’s gathered over four decades and which includes costumes evoking some of filmdom’s greatest stars and roles.
“I consider myself a fan. I’m a fan who was lucky enough to be among stars, so I collected them,” Reynolds said during a preview at the Paley Center for Media.
Profiles in History, the auction house, estimates the nearly 600 items could bring up to $10 million in the sale that will also be conducted online. More of Reynolds’ treasure trove is to be sold in December.
