| This gray pilot's jacket was worn by the character "Capt. Vernon Demerest," portrayed by actor Dean Martin, in the 1970 motion picture, "Airport." This garment was custom tailored for Dean Martin by Sy Devore and has the original tailor's tag sewn inside with the actor's name and the production date "2-6-69" clearly typed. The jacket is complete with the original sleeve insignias as seen in the film.
Mr. Martin wore the shirt in numerous scenes throughout the picture. "Airport" starring Burt Lancaster, Dean Martin, Jacqueline Bisset, and Helen Hayes, was a huge critical and box office success, surpassing "Spartacus" as Universal Picture's biggest moneymaker. It originated the 1970s disaster film genre and was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and four Golden Globe awards.
