Internal jacket pocket has “PAR 3 pc.” hand written, internal vest label with “Hull” inscribed and bias tape with “M09” and “Prod 991”.

Mr. Larson wears this suit in the final scene of the film when “Cliff Ballenger” (Barton MacLane) knocks him out and traps him in a cage with Bengal tigers. A copy of the production photo still is included with this costume. This suit is in good vintage condition, and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house.
