Description

    A Stockade Jacket from "True Grit." Paramount, 1969. Made of heavy-weight tan cotton, four front flap pockets, four button front closure, tan corduroy collar and cuffs, inside lining stamped "American" [United American Costume/American Costume Corporation, Luster Bayless' company], no other labels; worn as Wayne portrayed "Rooster Cogburn" in the film that won him an Academy Award for 'Best Actor in a Leading Role.' (Please note jacket is stained and dirtied as it was not cleaned after production; there is also a hole on the back right shoulder.)

    This style of coat, known as a "stockade jacket," became part of Wayne's standard western costume for the rest of his career. It is first seen in the 1960 20th Century Fox release, "North to Alaska" (but with an added small pocket sewn on top of the larger left breast pocket) and then the design slightly changed to a three pocket version (which Wayne wore in three films) and then it changed again to a four pocket version (which Wayne wore in his last nine western films). It is believed that six of these "stockade jackets" were originally made: one for each of the "Chucks" [Roberson and Hayward, Wayne's longtime stunt doubles] and four for Wayne himself.
