This pith helmet was worn by the character "Capt. Jeffrey Claybourne," portrayed by legendary actor Rock Hudson, in the 1954 motion picture, �Bengal Brigade.� The canvas-covered helmet has a pleated cotton band wrapped around the base of the crown, and the interior has the original Western Costume Company label sewn inside with the name �Rock Hudson� handwritten in red ink.
Mr. Hudson wore this pith helmet in numerous scenes after he is forced to resign his army commission and becomes a big game hunter in the North West Frontier of India. He also wore the helmet in several promotional images for the film.
The helmet is in vintage screen worn condition with evidence of distress due to use and age. Accompanied by a letter of authenticity. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premier source for iconic screen used wardrobe, props, and music entertainment memorabilia.
