Western style jacket worn by the character of Flint Mitchel, actor Clark Gable in the 1951 classic Western Across The Wide Missouri. Tough trapper Flint Mitchell (Clark Gable) is a tenacious survivor in the unforgiving wilderness of the West. Determined to stay on the good side of the local Blackfoot tribe, Flint is intent on marrying Kamiah (Maria Elena Marques), the beautiful daughter of Ironshirt (Ricardo Montalban) -- especially since this union would allow him to freely pursue his trade in the region. Costumes for the film were designed by Walter Plunkett along with costumes supplied by Western Costume Company in Hollywood. This leather jacket with decorative leather stitching bears the Western Costume Company typed label stating ‘99-2324-1/Clark Gable/Chest 44 Inseam/Cb-28:3’. (The jacket is attributed to be an alternate costume piece, but not worn in the film) The Jacket was also worn by Lee Majors in the TV series, “The Big Valley”. This piece comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from Studio Auctions.
