Description

    John Wayne's Fedora from "The Fighting Seabees." Though he caught a lot of flak for staying home during WWII while actors such as James Stewart and David Niven joined the military and fought overseas, John Wayne instead contributed to the war effort by appearing in a number of films such as The Fighting Seabees (one of the few in movies in which his character is killed on-screen). This light grey fedora was worn by Wayne in the 1944 war drama, has "Duke" typed on a label on the inside of the sweatband, and is in Very Fine condition with a few small stains and mild to moderate wear to the felt. Accompanied by COA from L.A. Prop & Wardrobe Co.
