John Wayne's Rooster Cogburn Eyepatch at Auction



2015-07-06 13:01:55

An eyepatch that was worn by John Wayne in the 1975 film 'Rooster Cogburn' is at auction with Heritage next month.

John Wayne starred alongside Katharine Hepburn in the film, reprising his role as the U.S. Marshal Reuben J. "Rooster" Cogburn from the 1969 film True Grit-for which Wayne won his only Academy Award. 

Each of the eyepatches that were used in both True Grit and Rooster Cogburn were crafted individually by hand-making each one slightly unique.

It will auction among a selection of other entertainment memorabilia on the 18th and 19th of April.

Pretty iconic piece of Wayne memorabilia-I believe the original True Grit eye patch sold for as much as $48,000 a while back!
