Lot # 607 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - The Rocketeer's Promotional Costume Cirrus X3 Rocket Pack

Stock #114374

A Cirrus X3 rocket pack from the promotion of Joe Johnston's action adventure The Rocketeer. Pilot Cliff Secord (Bill Campbell) became a costumed hero in 1938 Los Angeles after discovering an experimental jetpack designed by Howard Hughes (Terry O'Quinn).

This silver-coloured resin jetpack features twin black-and-brown thrusters and several metal elements, and is mounted on a reinforced brown leather backpack housing via Velcro attachments on the straps. It was made from the original moulds used in the film, and used as part of an international promotional tour during the film's release, which featured performers wearing the Rocketeer costume. This jetpack exhibits small signs of wear throughout, including scuffing and paint chipping, as well as a small piece missing from the rim of one of the thrusters, and an attached piece of tape. Dimensions: 63.5 cm x 45.75 cm x 20.25 cm (25 1/2" x 18" x 8")
