700 memorabilia from John Wayne’s estate set for auction next month
London: More than 700 items belonging to legendary actor ‘The Duke’ John Wayne’s estate are all set to be put up for auction.
Items, including cowboy hats, saddles and other film props, will be put up for sale in Los Angeles next month.
One of the most wanted pieces of memorabilia will include a Golden Globe award he won for ‘True Grit’, which is valued at least 50,000 dollars.
Among other items, an eye patch he wore during the 1969 film will also go on sale along with hundreds of other costumes, scripts, and personal documents.
Wayne’s son Ethan said that he wanted to share some of his father’s memorabilia with fans.
“People have been calling for 32 years. His films affected people and they have a personal relationship with the guy and they want that connection. I remember how important the fans were to my father,” the Telegraph quoted Ethan as telling the Los Angeles Times.
