Captain Miller's (Tom Hanks) US Army captain shirt from Steven Spielberg’s 1998 WWII drama Saving Private Ryan.
Captain John Miller (Tom Hanks) takes his men behind enemy lines to find Private James Ryan (Matt Damon), whose three brothers have been killed in combat. Surrounded by the brutal realities of war, while searching for Ryan, each man embarks upon a personal journey and discovers their own strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honour, decency and courage.
Captain Miller wore his shirt throughout the film, from the landing on Omaha Beach on D-Day, through his hunt for the missing Private Ryan, to the final, climactic battle in the streets of Ramelle, where Miller and his platoon defended the bridge from the advancing German infantry and tanks.
The shirt is a brown button-up with two breast pockets. It has a ‘Rangers’ patch stitched to the left bicep and two badges pinned to the collar. One features crossed rifles, which are the insignia for the Infantry, and the other shows twin bars, which indicate Miller's rank of captain. As the shirt was made especially for Hanks in the role, it does not feature any size labelling. It has some wear from production use, with some plucked fabric and stitching. Overall it remains in an excellent condition.
Materials: Man-Made Woven Fibres, Ferrous Metals.
