What's Become of Veruca's Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka's Chocolate Factory?
Ever wonder what's become of Veruca's Golden Ticket to Willy Wonka's chocolate factory, or the almanac Biff stole in Back to the Future Part II? Then meet Joe Maddalena, the man who has made it his life mission to hunt down lost relics that have been dispersed around the globe. In Syfy's new series Hollywood Treasure (Wednesdays at 10/9c), auctioneer Maddalena travels the world to save the cultural artifacts from film and history —including the original Wicked Witch of the West's hat from The Wizard of Oz and Mary Poppin's bottomless carpetbag — that have wound up people's garages and basements.
Check out some of the props he was able to track down in the video after the jump.
