This ROADSHOW special edition spotlights celebrities, big-shots and headliners through objects connected to their lives. "Fame and Fortune" features a stellar lineup of appraisals that give new meaning to the term "face value." Highlights include the first mask ever worn by Clayton Moore, in 1951, as television’s Lone Ranger; a collection of photos and memorabilia documenting Marilyn Monroe’s progression from 14-year-old Norma Jean Baker to screen siren; an eye-popping collection of memorabilia from the Ramones punk band, preserved by a friend of DeeDee Ramone; James Dean’s 1948 high school junior yearbook, signed with his name and nickname, "Rack"; signed souvenir photos of Wild West legends Annie Oakley and Buffalo Bill; a reproduction plaster cast of the 1860 life mask of Abraham Lincoln, found in an attic; and a rare, mint-condition vintage set of Beatles nodder dolls, in their original box.
