PROPS: Indiana Jones The Last Crusade- bullWhip

This is Indiana Jones' (Harrison Ford) bullwhip from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. A truly, incredible piece of film history. It’s just purely iconic. “This particular whip was created for various scenes including the rescue at Castle Brunwald. Under the supervision of Glenn Randall (stunt co-ordinator for Raiders of the Lost Ark) Ford learned how to use the bullwhip between takes. By the time they came to film the third instalment, he was considered a whip expert; a major achievement for the actor, who injured his wrist in an earlier career as a carpenter. The bullwhip was made by master whip maker David Morgan, who also made whips for Catwoman (Michelle Pfeiffer) and Zorro (Antonio Banderas). It is 10 feet long and constructed from 12-plait, natural tan kangaroo hide, with a ball-and-loop detail at the end of the handle. “ “Accompanying the whip is a letter of authenticity written by Bronco McLoughlin. McLoughlin was a stunt performer and wrangler for the film, as well as serving on Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Also included is a 13'' x 19'' photograph in a rustic brown wooden frame. Autographed by Ford in blue marker, the photo depicts Jones wielding his whip. Displaying signs of natural wear from the production, the fall component shows minor leather fraying and cracking. Dimensions (unfurled): 334 cm x 4 cm x 4 cm (131 1/2'' x 1 1/2'' x 1 1/2'')”

This whip sold on September 26th, 2017 for $65,000 with the Propstore auction.
