    Description

    Humphrey Bogart's Blue Pinstripe Suit from "Dark Passage." Bogart teams up with Lauren Bacall again in this 1947 film about a man convicted of murdering his wife who escapes from prison in order to prove his innocence. The film is mostly shot from the point of view of the main character, Bogart, with the camera acting as his "eyes." There is a line in this film where a friendly cabby addresses Bogart's character Vincent Parry and says "Nice looking suit you're wearing." He's answered with a typical Bogart line "Thanks, and I don't feel chatty." Here's your chance to own Bogart's suit from this movie, and it is a great one. Three piece style in blue with alternating silver and gold pinstripes. The vest is a four pocket model with the 1947 Warner Brothers tag sewn inside. The pants are cuffed and pleated. Excellent condition. By the way, Agnes Moorehead was the real killer in the movie.
