Members of the Dallas cast reunited in Paris for the auction
Memorabilia from the iconic 1980s US TV series Dallas has fetched 12,500 euros (8,500) at an auction in Paris.

A white Stetson hat worn by JR Ewing, played by Larry Hagman, was among the items that went under the hammer, selling for 1,300 euros (880).

Hagman was at the Artcurial auction house along with other cast members including Linda Gray, Patrick Duffy, Steve Kanaly and Charlene Tilton.

Profits from the sale will go to French children's charity Hopital Sourire.

A pair of cowboy boots worn by Duffy's character Bobby Ewing fetched 200 euros (135), while a necklace that belonged to Sue Ellen in the US soap sold for 700 euros (475).

More than 300 people attended the auction.

The cast members were on a stop-over in Paris before their appearance at the 15th Country Music Festival of Mirande, in the Gers region.

The glossy TV series ran in prime time from 1978 to 1991 in the US and became a global hit.
