Catch-22, Screen Used Bomber Jacket

original movie costume

Bomber Jacket worn by one of the actual flight crew used in the film.  This from the previous owner: "I wore the jacket on the set of the movie Catch-22. The movie was filmed outside Guaymas, Mexico, I believe in 1968, where a complete Army Airforce base was constructed in the desert including a 5,000 foot runway. We went to work everyday wearing WWII uniforms, we never knew when we were being filmed, we just went about our business. I was ## years old and worked as a mechanic for ###########, the company that contracted with Paramount to furnish aircraft flight crews for the 16 Mitchell B25s used in the film. As a flight engineer/aircraft mechanic I flew in most of the scenes in the movie. I was in the bombardier/nose compartment on one of the aircraft in the opening scene, which was shot three times. With all 16 aircraft rolling for takeoff at the same, this was probably the most dangerous and demanding scene ever shot in a movie."
