A tan, red and navy blue wool argyle sweater with a v-neck and long sleeves worn by Gene Kelly in the scene where he runs up to the director at Monumental Pictues and says he wants to be a stunt man.
This piece was bought in the sale after the famous 1970 MGM Auction when the David Weisz Company decided to sell the remainder of the Hollywood costumes just off the rack, first come-first served.
Now a part of the famed Al Tapper collection since the Christies sale in December of 2000, this infamous argyle sweater has been kept in pristine condition. Unfortunately, the previous consignor at the Christies sale took this sweater to the drycleaners in the 1970s where they lost the original studio tag that had Kelly's name on it.

This sweater was sold at Christies in 2000 for $18,800 and originated from the famous 1970 MGM Auction when David Weisz Company sold the remainder of Hollywood Costumes just off the rack.
