One For All Film Fans.

Hi Film Fans,

.

So, it is a Bank Holiday today, and I am pleased to report that I was greeted this morning by cloudy skies and sunshine!!.

Wow, I had nearly forgotten what that feels like.

.

So, Big H and I will  most likely decide to avoid avoid any excursions on the roads, because everyone is probably out there creating traffic jams as we speak.

The plan will probably be to arrange a picnic in the garden, and then sit under a tree reading a book in the sunlight, if it lasts.

But what about you, how are you going to fill this Bank Holiday Monday then!

.

I expect that there is a good chance that some part of your precious down-time may be spent at the pictures, watching a new blockbuster, up close and personal.

Complete with all of the usual cheesy, pop-corny, cola-type accouterments.

.

Do you sit there watching the latest escapism and imagine what it must be like to be a bit nearer to such stardom yourself….if so, then I have news for you!.

Did you know that John Wayne‘s complete 1969 Rooster Cogburn outfit is to be auctioned in Los Angeles in October.

.

My goodness, what a rare outfit to wear for a ‘go as someone famous’ party.

.

It consists of the hat, shirt, jacket, trousers, waistcoat and well worn boots….plus the all-important eye patch.

.

The outfit was retained by the Duke after the movie finished, after his Oscar win for his part in the iconic movie ‘True Grit‘.

He was also given a Golden Globe award, which is also being auctioned.

.

Altogether there will be hundreds of things which belonged to the well loved star, for the bidders to fight over.

These include his annotated movie scripts and his passport and private papers, together with some of his other film costumes.

.

My goodness, I bet some people are already frenziedly working on their ‘must have’ wish-lists.

.

My old mum would have been at the front of the queue too!!!

J,x.
