Orlando Bloom’s armoury pass from the production of Ridley Scott’s 2001 war movie Black Hawk Down.
Forced by political pressure to try and capture a local rebel leader, the US military plan and execute a daring snatch and grab in the heart of Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu. But when the mission goes horribly wrong, surrounded on all sides by local militia, it’s up to the soldiers on the ground to save their brethren before it’s too late.
Bloom played solder Todd Blackburn and would have used this ID card to check weapons in and out of Zorg – the film and TV armoury that supplied the production. The plastic card is printed with a colour photo of Bloom with a shaved head and wearing his costume dog tags, with a lanyard hole punched at the opposite end.
At the top right the Black Hawk Down helicopter logo is printed, with the actor’s name and job title ‘Blackburn’ below this. The card is stamped with ‘Production ref: Actor 26’ and ‘Database Code: 105’. ‘Zorg Armoury Identification’ is printed alongside the photo. On the reverse the movie logo repeats along with a barcode, the word ‘Cast’ in military font, ‘Black Hawk Down Armoury’ and a Zorg Armoury property note.
The card remains unsigned and shows minor wear and marks from production use – overall it is in very good condition.
