Joseph Musso attended the Heritage auction with positive results.

SAYS JOE:


Thanks to Heritage Auctions for photographing the hat backwards with its crown pushed up and for saying that the hat was from only "Legend of the Lost," I was able to get the John Wayne cavalry style hat from "Fort Apache," "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon," Rio Grande," Hondo," and "Rio Bravo" at the first low bid ( with the buyer's premium). I also got JW's cavalry kepi from "Fort Apache, "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" and "Rio Grande," because they made an even bigger mistake by saying it was worn by Hoot Gibson in "The Horse Soldiers." These were the two items in the auction that I wanted the most since those titles are among my favorite JW films. And I didn't have to hock the farm and my arm and leg to do it.

A while after I won the items, but while the auction was still going on at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Century City, CA, John Wayne's son, Ethan, congratulated me and said that they'd found out too late about the other films they were used in. With the exception of Aissa, JW's other still living children, Patrick, Melinda and Marisa and his oldest granddaughter, Anita, were amongst his family in attendance, as well as at the private reception last Monday evening. They served a great lunch and dinner, Au gratis, during the auction. It was a long day, but a real JW day with his family and amongst all his memorabilia. It would be the last time all his personal items would be together.

JW's other headgear was properly identified and went for considerably more than the items I bought. Another similar cavalry style hat from his later films, "The Cowboys," "Big Jake" and "The Train Robbers," sold for $119,500. His beret from "The Green Berets" brought $179,250. His other cowboy hats averaged between $30-50,000. His only holster and gun belt in the auction (from "Elderado"), sold for $77,675. His vests went from $20-70,000. His boots went from $4-18,000. His saddle sold for $71,700. His eye patch from "True Grit" went for $47,800. His driver's license brought $89,625. His personal writing desk went for $56,762.50. All told, the auction brought in over $5,000,000.

However, JW's cavalry hat is now resting comfortably on his "Rio Bravo" red bib shirt and his kepi is on his "Fort Apache" and "She Wore a Yellow Ribbon" cavalry tunic in my abode.

Does anyone know if Wayne had more than one of these jackets made for The Alamo? Seems like I saw this jacket in other movies but the fringe was cut short. If I can remember which movie/movies I will post it.

Just a rough guess but I don't think so. It looks more like the one from "Big Jake". I thought the one in the picture was pretty much damged by Sammy Davis while filming "Sergeants 3" after Duke lent it to him.

John Wayne Hat at Auction

Postby wconly on Wed Nov 20, 2013 5:50 am

Bid high! Bid fast! I think I might pass on this one. Would be cool to own, but a bit out of my league: http://api.viglink.com/api/click?format ... 2294665312
