London: The eye-patch worn by Hollywood legend John Wayne in the cult hit Western True Grit is set to go under the hammer.

Other items once belonging to the American actor, including his Golden Globe, will also go under the hammer at the auction in October 2011, reported Contactmusic.

The actor’s turn as the alcoholic anti-hero Marshal Rooster Cogburn in True Grit, won him an Oscar and along with the famous eye patch, his cowboy boots, driving license, hats, passport and various movie scripts have also been handed over to sell. Items are expected to go for anything between $100 and $50,000.

“All these are items that could either stay stored somewhere, or be let loose to the people. We thought, what’s the best use of these items? My family and I have a few personal items and a lot of memories, so turning the rest over to his fans is the right thing to do,” said the actor’s son Ethan Wayne.

True Grit was recently remade by the Coen Brothers, with Jeff Bridges stepping into Wayne’s shoes. Bridges was also nominated for Best Actor trophy at this year’s Academy Awards. (PTI)
