Ever Wonder What Happened To These Iconic Movie Props?

Movie magic is when the cast and crew of a studio are able to make an audience believe something extraordinary, using only the bare minimum to achieve the impossible.

Some of the most memorable moments in film history have been thanks to a few well-made props that ended up becoming classic tropes in Hollywood. But what happens when their screen time is over and the director yells cut?

Here's the weird and tragic endings for those famous pieces of cinema history!

The Heart of the Ocean - Titanic

The incredible jewel that ties together the love triangle is what sparked the treasure hunt in the movie. While based on a true story, the studio had an original diamond necklace made for the film.

No, it wasn't really dropped into the Atlantic Ocean, in fact it is currently on display along with other props from director James Cameron's films.

Talkboy - Home Alone 2

We all wanted one of these voice recorders once we saw the movie, and lo and behold, one toy store actually listened. The device didn't exist when they made the movie, but there was such a demand for them that Tiger Electronics ended up producing over ten million units for the Christmas release.

Even though it didn't work, Macaulay Culkin got to keep the original Talkboy.

Fertility Idol - Indiana Jones

Several of these golden statues were made, which was a good thing because many of them broke during filming. The surviving "booby-trapped" idols have made their way into collections around the world, but most of the originals are on display in various science centers.

We all know what Indie would say, "It belongs in a museum!"

5 Fashion Items That Have Been Successfully Resurrected, And 5 We'd Rather Stay Dead

Fashion is one of those things that seems to have a cycle that everything follows, so the same things become popular every few years. It has been happening since the dawn of fashion really, but it's just a lot weirder when it's the stuff you grew up wearing. When you see a young kid rock the same style of outfit you wore when you were their age you suddenly feel like you've traveled through time. You'd expect for fashion to evolve over the years, but it honestly doesn't. It just spins in circles, occasionally scooping up some new additions or

Stirrup Pants Are Back In Style And We Don't Know How To Feel About It

We've all been there, the mall with our moms impatiently waiting to go to the toy section. She wants us to buy some new pants for school because we tore three holes in them last week. She says you have to try things on because you are growing too fast and she isn't sure what size you are, but honestly, there is nothing you want to do less than that. You rush through everything quickly, finding the size you need and then it isn't until years later when you look at the pictures of your childhood that you realize what

10 Iconic Toys From Your Childhood That You Couldn't Live Without

Let's be honest for a second, it's the internet, there is no one here to judge you. When you were growing up, what did you care the most about? Was it your family? No, that's just what you said near Christmas so you would get good gifts. Was it your friends? No, they weren't always there for you when you needed them. The thing we all cared about more than anything was our elaborate and extensive toy collections. Sure, does that make us all a little bit materialistic and selfish? Probably. But those are the facts and there's not much

13 Dreadful Life Lessons You Learned While Playing 13 Dead End Drive That Haunt You To This Day

Listen, board games were a very important part of our childhood. Dream Phone was played almost every weekend, Fireball Island was played on those days when you had the energy to set it up, but there was one game that trumped them all. 13 Dead End Drive was what happened if you mixed Clue with Mouse Trap, and also added in some good old-fashioned sabotage. The object of the game was simple: Survive. The backstory of the game (not that anyone really cared about that) was that a wealthy woman died and now there is a big fight over who
