Hollywood Ending may have been a flop, but Woody Allen's a hit in Amesbury, Mass.
A gallery in the small town has sold off tens of thousands of props from the director's movies over the past month as part of a massive sale that ended this weekend.
"We were mobbed. It was a great crowd. People drove in from Chicago, New York, West Virginia, Ohio — all over," said antiques dealer Dan Meader.
"This is probably the biggest thing that ever happened here."
Meader came into the movie manna thanks to the court fight between Allen and his former producer, Jean Doumanian.
Lawyers for the feuding former pals decided to sell off the props and have their clients split the profits.
The props - Meader estimated there were about 100,000 in total — had been gathering dust while sitting in a massive warehouse in Queens.
Meader appraised the goods last year, and eventually decided to buy the whole lot himself.
It took 12 24-foot-long trucks to clear out the half-block warehouse, which Meader said looked "like a huge Home Depot."
"It was mind-boggling the stuff that was in there," Meader said. "It was like the contents of about 20 houses."
The items ranged from "great big Victorian street lamps," to old-style refrigerators, street signs, "very nice furniture, artwork, ashtrays, cups, saucers, glassware, utensils, all that kind of stuff."
Meader slapped price tags on his booty, and started selling them out of a 6,000-square-foot gallery he rented — driving Allen fans bananas.
"One morning I showed up and there were 150 people lined up outside the gallery," Meader said.
Items he sold off ranged from high-end furniture at $2,000 a piece to bags of autumn leaves for $1 each.
One man showed up and said, "I'll buy anything that Goldie Hawn has touched." Meader sent him home happy with some pieces from Everybody Says I Love You — but not everyone said 'I loved it' afterwards.
"One person said they had to have the typewriter [Allen uses] in Deconstructing Harry." Meader sold it to him — devastating another fan who came in looking for the same piece minutes later.
Meader said he still has hundreds of pieces left from the sale and might auction them off with 15,000 costumes from Allen flicks he's considering buying.
"This was fun, but there was so much stuff," he said. "I still have a little bit of everything left."
