    John Wayne's Scarf from "Rooster Cogburn". Wayne's performance in True Grit (1969) was successful enough to spawn the sequel Rooster Cogburn in 1973, and a third movie was being considered when, sadly, the sequel performed poorly at the box office. Nevertheless, Wayne's performance as the taciturn U.S. Marshall remains one of his most memorable roles. This mauve scarf was worn by him in the 1973 movie, and it has a Batjac Prod. Inc. stamp near the top (not readily visible). It has been framed along with a color 5" x 7" still of Wayne from the movie in a 21" x 17" x 2.5" display box, and is in Excellent condition. Accompanied by COA from L.A. Prop and Wardrobe Co.
