Homeless Shelter Auctions Off Original Michael Jackson "Thriller" Film
Can we get one more Michael Jackson story in before the holiday? You bet! A homeless shelter in Paterson, New Jersey claims to have the 35mm original of Michael Jackson's Thriller video, and seeks a buyer. Eva's Village Healthcare for the Homeless says former CBS Records president Walter Yetnikoff gave them his own theater-quality print as a donation back in 1985. Now that the iron's hot, they're figuring the celluloid spool could buy them a lot of food and clothing for the indigent, and have put the film up for auction on eBay. Bidding at the moment is at $2,000.
