    John Wayne Costume Cavalry Scarf from "El Dorado." This mustard-yellow costume U.S. Cavalry scarf was worn by John Wayne in one of most memorable Westerns, Howard Hawks' El Dorado (1966). Actress Charlene Holt, who played "Maudie" in the film, obtained the scarf directly from the production company after completion of the movie, and it remained in her possession until her death in 1996. It was then obtained from her estate by a collector. The scarf has been professionally framed in a 22" x 20.5" x 2.5" display box along with color reproductions of a lobby card and poster for the movie, both featuring images of Wayne wearing the item. The scarf is in Very Fine to Excellent condition, with just a little bit of wear and fading. A fantastic, one-of-a-kind item.

    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!
