EAST GREENWICH, R.I. — A rare auction of an Oscar statuette brought a total of $79,200, well more than expected, at its sale Monday by a Rhode Island auction house.

Nanci Taylor of Briarbrook Auctions said the total included a 20 percent buyer's premium for the 1942 Oscar. She declined to disclose the name of the buyer, but said "you would recognize the name."
