HERO COCHISE VEST WORN BY David Harris. Signature vest worn as Cochise in The Warriors. (Paramount, 1979) Light brown synthetic leather vest with black trim in a geometric pattern, lined in polyester and handwritten in black ink near the makers label, Cochese [sic]. Worn by Cochise, the soldier who dresses in Native American Indian accoutrements and who successfully makes it back to Coney Island with his Warrior brethren. This is the only Warriors vest known to have survived with original patches, and may be the only opportunity collectors may ever have to own an original wardrobe piece from this classic film.
The other vests from the production had their patches removed and were put back into general use for Paramount productions. Authentication paperwork traces this only known survivor vest directly back to the Paramount Wardrobe department where it was aquired by'The Golden Closet'. Also documentation from PROFILES IN HISTORY. A HIGHLY DOCUMENTED SCREEN USED ITEM. Some expected usage, fading (sweat stains under arms) and wear to the piece, otherwise item is in fine screen used condition.
