Black Knight, The

John's (Alan Ladd) Eagle Tunic

Stock #69905

John’s (Alan Ladd) eagle tunic from Tay Garnett’s 1954 adventure film The Black Knight.

Swordsmith John works in the court of King Arthur (Anthony Bushell) and wishes to wed Lady Linet (Patricia Medina), but cannot as a commoner. An opportunity arises for him to prove his worth as he strives to thwart a plot against Arthur and Christianity by the Saracen Sir Palamides (Peter Cushing) and the pagan Cornish King Mark (Patrick Troughton).

John wore his eagle tunic during the film’s closing moments when he was knighted by Arthur. Made from heavy cream-coloured cotton, the tunic is worn over the shoulders and is open at the sides. A large stylised black eagle has been sewn onto the front and back, characterised by gold-coloured threads defining its plumage and necklace pendant. A pink tongue protrudes from its beak, and each short sleeve is trimmed with the same black and gold as the main emblem. The tunic fastens via three hooks at the left shoulder.

Showing signs of age, the item is only lightly marked from production use and remains in excellent overall condition.

Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres.
