The Searchers, Ward Bond Long Coat

original movie costume

Ward Bond long black coat worn in the great western starring John Wayne. Commencing with the wedding, Bond wears the coat for the remaining half of the film as The Reverend Captain Samuel Johnson Clayton, pastor and head of the Texas Rangers. Western Costume Company label with his name. A flaw in the left lapel of the piping and mismatched buttons match it to use. THE SEARCHERS is a special film to most Wayne collector's due to importatnce of the film and scarcity of any artifacts from it. From WIKI:

"Since its release, it has come to be considered a masterpiece, and one of the greatest and most influential films ever made. It was named the greatest American western by the American Film Institute in 2008, and it placed 12th on the same organization's 2007 list of the 100 greatest American movies of all time. Entertainment Weekly also named it the best western. The British Film Institute's Sight & Sound magazine ranked it as the seventh best film of all time based on a 2012 international survey of film critics and in 2008, the French magazine Cahiers du Cinéma ranked The Searchers number 10 in their list of the 100 best films ever made."
