The now famed spectacles that Gary Oldman wore as George Smiley TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY can now be yours -- if you win the auction. The glasses have been donated for a charity auction through the Variety Foundation and its "CharityBuzz" page. The auction will begin imminently at www.CharityBuzz.com, and closes on Monday, February 27th. The glasses, which were fundamental for Oldman building his characterization of George Smiley, were found by the actor while in California, after a long search by director Tomas Alfredson and costume designer Jacqueline Durran for just the right pair.
