MORRIS PLAINS, N.J., Feb. 15 (UPI) -- A New Jersey company will auction the personal belongings of the late soap opera queen Ruth Warrick, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

Auctioneer Dawson and Nye will offer objects related to Warrick's first movie, the legendary "Citizen Kane," and the TV soaps for which she later became famous, "Peyton Place" and "All My Children."

From "Citizen Kane," movie buffs will be able to bid on a bound 25th anniversary edition of the script signed in 1966 by director/star Orson Welles, co-star Joseph Cotten and Warrick, who played Charles Foster Kane's first wife, Emily, in the 1941 film.

Most of the items come from Warrick's Park Avenue apartment, including furniture, paintings (including one floral piece painted by Warrick's friend, Gloria Vanderbilt), movie posters (including one for Warrick's second movie, "The Corsican Brothers," co-starring Douglas Fairbanks, Jr.), a number of autographed books, and signed scripts from "Peyton Place" and "All My Children."

Warrick died Jan. 17 at age 88.
