Hagman auctions off JR memorabilia

Larry Hagman, who played the cold, conniving oil baron JR Ewing in the beloved 1980s series Dallas, has auctioned off many of his personal valuables.

Caroline Galloway of Julien's Auctions said a silver saddle was the priciest item sold in Beverly Hills, fetching 80,000 US dollars (£48,700).

Other big items included a portrait of Hagman's co-star Jim Davis that went for more than 38,000 US dollars (£23,100), a replica bottle from Hagman's earlier series I Dream of Jeannie that brought in more than 10,000 US dollars (£60,800), and a pair of pistols that fetched more than 4,000 US dollars (£2,400).

The 79-year-old Hagman put in an appearance, describing items to the crowd then sitting in the audience during bidding.

The collection brought in more than 500,000 US dollars (£304,300).
