For many decades, Debbie Reynolds dreamed of opening a Hollywood museum and through the years she amassed an enormous collection of movie costumes and memorabilia. She approached the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences several times and tried to convince them to join her in the project but they turned her down for some reason. Back in the 90’s Debbie opened a small costume museum in Las Vegas and invited us to see it. It was a movie fan’s dream and only hinted at the rest of her collection. Sadly her little museum went bankrupt and Debbie had most of her money invested in her collection. She had no choice and had to auction off two thirds of the collection. NOW the Academy announces they are building a Hollywood museum! Debbie COULD donate what’s left of her collection to the Academy but she won’t. She told the Hollywood Reporter that she was “hurt” by their earlier rebuffs. Shame on the Academy for not having the foresight to realize the importance of her collection!

    I love Debbie Reynolds original idea for a Museum! Too bad her Hollywood Collection of Memorabilia wasn’t accepted as part of the Museum before she had to auction it off!

    must’ve cost her a fortune to get that collection together. I don’t blame her for not making the donation. Let them try to buy some stuff now!

    Debbie Reynolds is not Jewish, thus her idea of creating a Museum was a very difficult proposition in Hollywood.

    Debbie is from that old school of survivor. She continues to look as beautiful as she did when she was Miss Burbank!!

    Debbie Reynolds….thrilled to know her…thrilled to have witnessed her auctions….thrilled she wont give to the Academy. Is this the same Academy that edits the memorials on Oscar night .. keeping out wonderful Academy stars like Ed Lauter and Ernest Borgnine and Marvin Paige…..who is running the Academy now???? Shameful and poorly run. There I’ve said it.

    Good for her. They were completely short sighted. Should have snapped that stuff up, they don’t make things like that any more,

    Agree. The Academy Awards leave out a lot of people.

    May all the costumes go to people who will care and treasure them.
