CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — The torso armor Russell Crowe wore for his
Oscar-winning role in "Gladiator" (above) eclipsed expectations at a Sydney auction on Saturday, selling for 125,000 Australian dollars ($96,000).

Sotheby’s Australia had estimated the stunt cuirass worn in the 2000
blockbuster would fetch between AU$20,000 and AU$30,000. But much of
the movie memorabilia auctioned by the Australia-based New Zealander
as part of his divorce settlement exceeded expectations.
