Luke Skywalker Lightsaber auctioned for $240,000

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Luke Skywalker's lightsaber has been on Star Wars movie fans' Christmas lists for more than 30 years.

On Thursday, one fan spent $240,000 to get the real thing: the movie prop that Mark Hamill used in the first two films in the original "Star Wars" trilogy.

The lightsaber highlighted several Hollywood memorabilia sold at an auction in Los Angeles by Profiles in History. The auction house said it sold about $3.5 million in memorabilia.

The droid helmet worn by Anthony Daniels to play C-3PO sold for $120,000, and the costume Marlon Brando wore in the "Superman" movie went for $72,000.

The first British edition of "You Only Live Twice" inscribed by Ian Fleming sold for $84,000. Roald Dahl's handwritten screenplay for the movie of the same title sold for $96,000.
