Auction to save archives

NEW YORK — Industryites were on a mission to save their heritage during a memorabilia auction to benefit film preservation Tuesday night at the Euro-chic W Hotel on Lex.

As Miramax topper Harvey Weinstein told Daily Variety: “We (production companies) can do two things. A: we can donate money, and B: we can take the lesson of the lost movies and preserve them ourselves … because we’re losing our heritage if we don’t.”

Event, sponsored by the Film Foundation and American Movie Classics, was emceed by Patti LuPone and hosted by Leonardo DiCaprio, Martin Scorsese and AMC prexy Kate McEnroe.

The auction yielded more than $200,000 for the participating archives. Tying for biggest bid were DiCaprio’s $35,000 acquisition of an original “Raging Bull” poster (signed by Scorsese and Robert DeNiro) and Weinstein’s $35,000 golf outing with Jack Nicholson and Pesci (who threw in a cigar as a bonus).
