    Clark Gable "Rhett Butler" screen worn riding jacket from Gone With the Wind. (MGM, 1939) Vintage original custom tailored dark gray flannel period riding jacket with 3-self-cover button front closure and 1-button at the back vent (with one missing). The interior is lined with black satin, retaining the "Eddie Schmidt" maker's label and bias label with handwritten, "38 / Mr. Clark Gable / Date 6-16-39 No. 3824." In the book Memo from David O.

Highly visible worn by the dashing Clark Gable in the memorable scene when he rides with daughter "Bonnie" on his lap, stopping to discuss Bonnie's thumb-sucking with "Mrs. Merriwether". With some fraying to the interior lining. Overall, in vintage fine condition. Provenance: Camden House, Beverly Hills, "Movie Memorabilia: The Golden Age of Hollywood", May 20, 1989, lot 172.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
