The youngest daughter of director and writer Orson Welles is giving film buffs a chance to own some of his personal possessions, and that's just how he would want it.

Beatrice Welles says her father wouldn't have wanted his things behind museum glass.

She is instead handing more than 70 items over to an auction house, which will put them up for bidding April 26.

Beatrice Welles opened boxes and trunks that had been sitting in her Sedona, Ariz., home last year and found dozens of relics tied to some of the filmmaker's best known movies.

Among the treasures - a camera, a typewriter, film scripts, letters and photos from the set of "Citizen Kane."

Welles, best known for films including "Citizen Kane" and "The Magnificent Ambersons," died in 1985.
