Additionally I was not wearing a cap that who knows what other guy wore before me. However, on the next to the last day I had left the cap at home because it was not being used that day on the set and much to my dismay I was informed when I arrived that I would not need to return for the last day as I was not needed.So with no reason to appear on the morning bus full of extra's I wound up keeping the cap. The difference between a fact and a story is verification. I can prove I was in the movie.
I can prove I spent 15 very long 12-14 hour days on the set. I can prove the cap is authentic.
I can prove I was in the shower scene (because you can see me). The story is that I can not prove that Morgan actually wore the hat I swapped.It's just my story. For 25 years it has been good enough for me because I know this, because I did it, and that was enough for me as I never imagined trying to sell it. Now with this sin confessed - I can prove the cap is authentic and have done so by obtaining a certificate of authenticity that I had signed and notarized by the screen credited Wardrobe assistant who is also listed in the IMdB as such. That would have required I actually go to an audition! The funds from the sale will go to his cause. Mind you - without their caps! Additionally, I have never seen another cap from the movie for sale and I believe its because they were destroyed. You see when 200+ sweaty guys all share caps over a month or so of 90 degree days of high humidity they tend to get a little unsavory.
My friend in wardrobe suggested they may have been destroyed. So here is a once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of movie history AND help someone in need of life saving treatments to be able to afford them. Your generosity helps me help another!
