    John Wayne's Beret from "The Green Berets". Prompted by the anti-war atmosphere and social discontent in the U.S. during the late '60s, John Wayne produced and starred The Green Berets, released in 1968 shortly after the Tet Offensive. Wayne had always been a steadfast supporter of American involvement in the war in Vietnam, and even turned down a role in The Dirty Dozen to make Berets instead. Considered by some to be an overly idealized and romanticized depiction of the conflict, it remains one of Wayne's most controversial movies. This is the titular beret worn by Wayne in his role of special forces officer "Col. Mike Kirby." complete with a Batjac Productions Inc. costume tag bearing Wayne's name sewn inside, and it is in Very Fine to Excellent condition with very mild wear. Accompanied by COA from L.A. Prop and Wardrobe Co.
