    Description

    Dick Van Dyke "Bert" jacket from "Jolly Holiday" sequence in Mary Poppins. (Disney, 1964) Iconic jacket worn by Dick Van Dyke as "Bert" in one of the most memorable scenes from Walt Disney's timeless children's classic, Mary Poppins. Dick Van Dyke stars as ''Bert'' the chimney sweep opposite Julie Andrews as the magical title character ''Mary Poppins''. This instantly recognizable, colorful striped coat was worn in the whimsical scene in which Bert, Mary Poppins and Jane and Michael Banks jump into one of Bert's sidewalk chalk paintings of an English countryside and county fair. Van Dyke wears this coat when he sings ''Jolly Holiday'' to Mary as the couple strolls through an animated landscape innovatively combining live-action with animation, allowing cast to interact with cartoon animals on screen. The scene concludes with a comic sequence in which Bert clowns and dances with a pack of excited penguins. The jacket is designed with vertical stripes running throughout in bold pink and orange tones. Featuring a red satin lining, the jacket has two inside flaps that served as makeshift hooks for the sequence when Burt is lifted to sing along with some birds. Integral bias tag reads, ''Western Costume Co. Hollywood / No. 2764-1 / Name: Dick Van Dyke / Chest: 39 1/2 / Sleeve: 17 1/2'' inches, with a second ''Western Costume Co.'' stamp on interior lining. Includes an original Christie's tag from a prior 1993 auction. Coat has two very minor, unnoticeable spots, in very good to near fine condition. Special shipping arrangements will apply.
