| This costume was worn by the character “Scott Thorson” played by actor Matt Damon in the 2013 award-winning HBO movie “Behind the Candelabra.” The denim patchwork shirt is made by H Bar C California Ranchwear and comes with matching pants with the same label. The costume includes the production HOLD tag that reads “Behind the Candelabra: Hold!” “Scott Change #4.”
Mr. Damon can be seen wearing this costume as his character Scott and his friend “Bob Black” (Scott Bakula), are seen walking into a venue to see Scott’s first “Liberace” (Michael Douglas) performance. The outfit is featured very prominently as the two are walking through the hotel lobby, as well as during the entire first show that we, the audience, see of Liberace in the film. Close-ups of Scott and Bob sitting in their booth enjoying the performance sipping on martinis show off the costume in great detail. After the show concludes, Scott and Bob are seen heading backstage to meet Liberace. Liberace’s manager invites the two into the dressing room to meet with him, and this encounter sparks the beginning of their relationship.
“Behind the Candelabra” starring Michael Douglas, Matt Damon, Scott Bakula, Rob Lowe and Debbie Reynolds follows the last ten years of the life of Liberace and the secret affair he had with Scott Thorson. The film, directed by Academy-award winner Steven Soderbergh, is based on Thorson’s memoir, Behind the Candelabra: My Life with Liberace (1988). The film garnered 15 Emmy nominations and went on to win 11 including “Outstanding Miniseries or Movie,” “Outstanding Director,” “Outstanding Costumes for a Movie or Miniseries,” and “Best Actor” for Michael Douglas. This costume is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house.
