hollywoodnews.com: Roughly thirty-two years after his death, more than 700 of legendary actor John Wayne’s possessions were auctioned off. Receipts totaled upwards of $5.4 million dollars, said Heritage Auctions on Friday, which handled the estate sale on behalf of Wayne’s family.

Among big ticket items were the beret Wayne wore in his 1969 film, “The Green Berets,” which sold for $179,250; a cowboy hat that was worn in two films (1971’s “Big Jake” and 1972’s “The Cowboys”) commanded $119,500. Other predictable western movie memorabilia (including the belt and holster from the film “El Dorado” and the “True Grit” eye patch) were auctioned off alongside other items of a more personal nature, such as Wayne’s 1981 Driver’s License.

Wayne participated in 181 films between 1929 and 1976, with as many as 40 of his appearances uncredited (per IMDB). His most recognized fim was “True Grit” for which he won both an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Wayne went on to win Favorite Motion Picture Actor in the People’s Choice Awards every year from 1975 until 1978, the year before his death.
