This costume was worn by the president’s aggressive chief of staff, General Decker (Rod Steiger), with this style of uniform worn throughout the film. The uniform is comprised of a rifle green wool uniform jacket with various insignia, decorations and a “Decker” nametag, a pair of rifle green wool trousers with two black strips running down either leg, a light green Flying Cross long-sleeved shirt, a black tie and a green wool officer’s cap with general staff insignia. The shirt and tie have Motion Picture Costume Company labels while the shirt is labelled “Decker.” The set is accompanied by a pair of wardrobe tags for the hat indicating its use by Rod Steiger.
Well-used on the production with only minor wear, the costume remains in overall very good condition. The hat is marked as a size 7 1/2", with no other sizes marked.
