    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.
