    Description

    A John Wayne Eye Patch from "Rooster Cogburn." Universal, 1975. Made of black leather with fine wire mesh covering a cut-out hole; makeup residue still evident on the inside patch; one of many worn by Wayne throughout the film as he portrayed the title character; also possibly worn by him in "True Grit" six years earlier. (Please note some black paint has worn off the mesh area and specks of white are now evident.)
    Length: 31"

    PROVENANCE:
    The current owner received this eye patch as a gift directly from Luster Bayless back in 1975 when as a sixteen year old, she babysat for his children. Bayless [Wayne's longtime costumer] crafted all these eye patches by hand for both "True Grit" and "Rooster Cogburn" so each one is slightly unique.
