    Humphrey Bogart's Costume Military Shirt From Battle Circus (1953). A khaki uniform shirt worn by Bogart in the 1953 war drama, with an MGM costume label sewn into the lining reading "H. Bogart". Battle Circus was the only feature film Bogart made for MGM; set in Korea during the war, the movie starred Bogie as a surgeon and commander of a mobile army surgical hospital. Ironically, the movie was originally titled MASH, but the studio rejected it fearing the audience would think the film had something to do with potatoes. Bogart agreed to do the film because the script's humor contrasted with its tragic wartime setting, something he felt made the film seem more realistic. The shirt is in Excellent condition, and is accompanied by an 11" x 14" lobby card for the movie.
