Update: The Whitney Houston items realized over $80,000.Auctioneer Darren Julien told the AP, “It proves a point that these items, they’re an investment. You buy items just like a stock. Buy at the right time and sell at the right time, and they just increase in value.” Charlie Chaplin’s cane and Charlton Heston’s staff from “The Ten Commandments” will be offered at the same Beverly Hills sale at the end of March.
