The navy blue crew cap features mesh panels and has the title "E.T." embroidered on the front in white thread. A 10x8 behind-the-scenes photograph of Steven Spielberg wearing an identical cap is also included. The cap displays some signs of wear, most notably some golden powder, which is caught in the seams and visible on the fabric. Also, the linen lining around the brim and the backing of the embroidered front panel both display some yellowing.

This lot comes from the personal collection of celebrated film producer Robert Watts. Watts’ career began in the 1960s with location manager, production manager and assistant director credits on movies including Thunderball, Repulsion, Darling, Papillon, 2001: A Space Odyssey, Star Wars: A New Hope and Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Robert went on to become producer of such classics as Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Star Wars: Return of the Jedi, Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. It’s fair to say his CV includes some of the most popular movies of all time.
Robert and his family are parting ways with these important artefacts so that they may find new custodians to cherish and appreciate them for years to come.
