A Montgomery Clift duffel bag from From Here to Eternity
Columbia, 1953. Made of denim with a rope drawstring; stenciled on side in white paint "Robert E.L. Prewitt / 6977859;" Seen at the very beginning of the film when Clift [as Private Prewitt] first walks on to the Schofield Barracks military base with this bag (and another identical one) slung over his shoulder as he says hello to Maggio [Frank Sinatra's character]; the bag is also seen in the extended sequence where he walks to the supply room with Sergeant Milton Warden [Burt Lancaster's character]. Clift was nominated for an Academy Award® for "Best Actor in a Leading Role" and though he lost to William Holden in Stalag 17, the film won eight other Oscars(c), including Best Picture. (Please note this duffel bag is now in worn condition with some small holes and staining evident.)
Provenance: The current owner inherited this duffel bag from his stepfather, Brooks Clift, who inherited it directly from his brother, Montgomery Clift.
Length: 28in
