Michael Caine's 'Get Carter' trench coat up for sale

Friday November 25, 2011

Sir Michael Caine's iconic trench coat from Get Carter is going under the hammer.

The black mac from the gangster film - which co-starred Britt Ekland - is expected to fetch £4,500 at auction.

The double-breasted coat is being offered up for sale by stuntman Johnny Morris who played Caine's double in the 1971 British classic.

Stephanie Connell, from auction house Bonhams, told The Sun:

"This is one of two coats that were used in the film.

"It comes with a letter of authenticity from stuntman Johnny Morris who said it was used in fight sequences and both he and Michael Caine wore it.

"The film is a British classic and is Michael Caine's stand-out performance.

"The image of him in the coat with the collar pulled up and carrying a shotgun is iconic. It is a sharp look."

The film, directed by Mike Hodges and starring Michael as hardman Jack Carter, was ranked 16th in the BFI Top 100 British films of the 20th century.
