Captain Vernon Demerest (Dean Martin) pilot jacket
Item # D0145


This gray pilot's jacket was worn by the character "Capt. Vernon Demerest," portrayed by actor Dean Martin, in the 1970 motion picture, "Airport." This garment was custom tailored for Dean Martin by Sy Devore and has the original tailor's tag sewn inside with the actor's name and the production date "2-6-69" clearly typed. The jacket is complete with the original sleeve insignias as seen in the film.

Mr. Martin wore the shirt in numerous scenes throughout the picture. "Airport" starring Burt Lancaster, Dean Martin, Jacqueline Bisset, and Helen Hayes, was a huge critical and box office success, surpassing "Spartacus" as Universal Picture's biggest moneymaker. It originated the 1970s disaster film genre and was nominated for 10 Academy Awards and four Golden Globe awards.

The jacket is in excellent screen worn condition and is accompanied by a letter of authenticity from the costume house. Presented by The Golden Closet, your premier source for iconic screen used wardrobe, props, and music entertainment memorabilia.

I'm betting that the jacket has been cleaned. Pity! Wouldn't it be a real treasure if the Woodhue scent still permeated the jacket? Woodhue by Fabergé was our Dino's cologne. It's almost impossible to obtain it now.

Deanna Martin has just a bit left in an old bottle that belonged to our Dino. She wrote that she takes out that bottle from time to time to feel closer to her dad. Scent memories last the longest, you know.
