A watch worn by Steve McQueen in the film "Le Mans" sold for nearly $800,000 at an auction of film memorabilia.

The auction house Profiles in History said Tuesday the Heuer wrist watch sported by the actor in the 1971 action movie sold for $799,500. A signed U.S. passport belonging to McQueen fetched $46,125.

Other items that were sold included a miniature drop-ship used in "Aliens" for $225,000; Groucho Marx's wire-rim glasses from "A Night at the Opera" for $86,100; and Vivien Leigh's hat from "Gone with the Wind" for $67,650.

One bidder coughed up $98,400 for Marlon Brando's assassination jacket from "The Godfather." A personal copy of the 1971 film's script signed by Brando went for $55,000.

The buyers were not identified.
