Lot # 73 - Live Auction 2017 - Child Catcher's (Robert Helpmann) Coat

Stock #69901

The Child Catcher's (Robert Helpmann) coat from Ken Hughes' musical adventure Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The Child Catcher wore his coat throughout the film as he hunted the Potts children in Vulgaria.

Made of thick black material, the coat features brown wooden buttons running down the front, with matching buttons located on the sleeves and the back of the coat. Two large pockets are located on either side of the coat, with a large vent in the back. The coat is fully lined with black fabric, with an M. Berman Ltd. label located inside the interior pocket reading 'R. Helpman' (sic). The lining has been unstitched around the shoulders to remove the shoulder pads, and the exterior of the coat has faded as a result of age. Supplied with an original lobby card measuring 35.5 cm x 28 cm (14' x 11'), it remains in good overall condition.
