Love watching this movie especially while wearing the same jacket Kirk Douglas wears, a Lee Storm Rider 101 LJ blanket lined (horizontal indicates 50′s or 60′s. Same jacket Maryiln Monroe wears in The Misfits. My jacket came from the same Western shop, Parkers in Reno where Monroe’s jacket came from and where Clark Gable bought his Lee 101 Westerner to use in the movie The Misfits.
This is Kirk Douglas’s favorite movie. Cimarron.
