Police say two guns used in vintage movies starring John Wayne and William Holden have been stolen from a Portland video store that features movie memorabilia.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says the shop owner at Movie Madness told officers that a man spent about 25 minutes in the store Tuesday afternoon before breaking into a locked display cabinet and stealing the guns.

Simpson says one gun is a Winchester rifle used by John Wayne in the 1962 film, “The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance,” and the other is a shotgun used by William Holden in the 1969 film, “The Wild Bunch.”
