Brandon Lee leather coat from The Crow

(Miramax, 1994) Black leather mid-length coat by the Leather Warehouse, size 38, bought specifically for Brandon Lee and worn in character as “Eric Draven” in the film. Accompanied with a letter of authenticity from Darryl Levine, wardrobe supervisor on the film. Most significantly, the jacket shows evidence of blood at the lower right-side hem in the back of the jacket, strongly suggesting that this is the actual jacket worn by Lee at the time of his death on the set of The Crow. On that tragic day in March of 1993, Lee was on the set preparing to film the final scenes, including a flashback sequence where it is revealed how his character was originally murdered. The plot, which had undergone several re-writes, called for “Eric Draven” to enter his apartment to discover a group of intruders beating his fiancée. One of the robbers was to approach Lee and fire a handgun at him repetitively, leaving him for dead. When the cameras began to roll, Lee entered the apartment, and on cue, “Fun Boy” (one of the intruders) turned to face Lee, leveled the gun, and fired. Brandon held his stomach, motioned to director Alex Proyas to “Cut” then fell backwards against the door. Seconds later, Proyas shouted “CUT!” Brandon remained on the floor, while his friend and stunt choreographer Jeff Imada ran over with a paramedic to see if he’d hit his head on the door when he fell and knocked himself out. They discovered a thin slit an inch below and to the right of his navel, but this didn’t hold any clues as to what had happened. Removing Brandon’s jacket, they spotted a hole in his t-shirt; by this time, the young actor had slipped into unconsciousness. An ambulance was called, and Brandon was rushed to the hospital where doctors discovered that a cap from the blank-firing pistol had penetrated his abdomen and lodged into his spine. Despite the heroic efforts of the trauma surgeons, Lee was pronounced dead five hours later. Estimate $4,000 – $6,000
