Original screen used hero "John Robinson" illuminating Laser Rifle from Lost in Space TV series (CBS TV, 1965-1968). First season Guy Williams "Prof. John Robinson" laser rifle used throughout the 1st season. One of only two made for the show (Profiles in History sold the other non-working version in 2003). This rifle is constructed out of metal with wood pistol grip and shoulder stock. This rifle retains all original light bulbs, trigger and acrylic emitter tip and shoulder strap. Originally purchased in the early 1980s from Chuck & Rita's Hollywood Memorabilia and Rental store. In the late 1970s, Chuck & Rita's purchased 20th Century Fox's "fixtures" department obtaining a large number of props and set pieces, this rifle was part of that purchase. Only minor clean up/touch-up was done on the silver barrel area, all other paint is original from Fox in the 1960s. Some wiring has deteriorated, but could easily be made to work again.

This lot, 674, sold for $70,000 at the Profiles in History Hollywood Auction 40 on 10-12 June 2010.
