Description

Screen-worn shirt from the 1939 Cagney-Bogart Western

James Cagney's screen-worn shirt from his starring role as outlaw Jim Kincaid (the 'Oklahoma Kid') in the 1939 Warner Bros. Western film The Oklahoma Kid. The gray long-sleeved shirt features a single pocket and three buttons on the front, and a white strap at the bottom to keep it tucked in. A Warner Bros. Pictures, Inc., tag is sewn in the collar, annotated in ink: "16, Gar. No. J. Cagney, 4 Shirts." In fine condition, with one button missing from the right cuff. Directed by Lloyd Bacon, The Oklahoma Kid cast James Cagney as the titular gunslinger opposite Humphrey Bogart's vicious black-clad villain in a classic tale of vigilantism during the Oklahoma land rush. A stunning screen-used piece from a noteworthy, Oscar-winning actor of Hollywood's Golden Age.
