While stranded on the deserted island for four years in Cast Away, Tom Hank's Chuck Noland has only one friend, a volleyball named Wilson. The makeshift companion kept the stranded executive sane during his time alone and became the film's breakout star. During an auction earlier in the week, the iconic movie prop sold for nearly four times its estimated value. The volleyball comes heavily distressed with paint to appear as if it's been on a deserted island for half a decade, while its brown face represents the aged blood from the handprint put there by Noland. For authenticity, the item has been screen-matched to scenes on the raft and close-ups of Wilson floating in the ocean after the storm.
