Storage Buyer Finds Celebrity Nudes in Bob Guccione Unit
NEW JERSEY — An abandoned storage unit belonging to late Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione has produced for its new owner a collection of rare artifacts and unreleased celebrity nudes.
Jeremy Frommer, a former hedge fund manager at Royal Bank of Canada, purchases abandoned storage lockers as a hobby and bought Guccione's in Englewood, NJ reports NYPost.com's Page Six.
Among the items found in the unit were unreleased nudes of pop icon Madonna and actress Lauren Hutton (with negatives and release forms) and a photograph of actor and former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger engaged in a sex act.
Other notable findings included personal files on disgraced 1984 Miss America Vanessa Williams and fallen preacher Jimmy Swaggart, footage and props from Guccione's 1979 epic "Caligula" and correspondence with Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber.
Frommer told The Post that he has since acquired more Guccione's estate and teamed up with film producer Rick Schwartz to preserve its legacy and to explore new projects.
