Dr. Copper's (Richard Dysart) screen-matched winter coat from John Carpenter's sci-fi horror classic The Thing. Copper wore his jacket throughout the film, including when he and MacReady (Kurt Russell) traveled by helicopter to the Norwegian research station, and discovered a block of ice which once contained the alien creature.
This charcoal-color, zip-front coat features a beige interior, VelcroÂ® attachments on front, three front pockets, and a drawstring hood with synthetic fur lining around the opening and an adjustable strap. It is in excellent overall condition with some minor wear from production.
Estimate: $3,000 - 5,000
