Q: How can I be assured that an item is authentic?
A: MovieMania pride themselves in conducting significant research on every item which we offer for sale. What makes us stand out from the crowd is that we ensure that all of our item's are backed by studio or crew member originated provenance in addition to our own unique certificate of authenticity. Why should somebody authenticate a prop when they had no involvement in the production of the film? Our focus lies in those in the industry who worked on the production and the companies who managed and created the items we offer for sale. By working closely with such ensures that our authentication process is robust and that we can offer sound provenance. This usually conists of a type-written letters from crew members, set polaroids, annotated notes, production tags, & call sheets.. Our primary goal is that if we cannot provide evidence that the item was used in the film, we will not acquire it ourselves.

In addition to this assurance, we include our Lifetime Money Back Guarantee; a document issued by MovieMania, for that added peace of mind.
