Douglas Fairbanks Sr. “Steve Drexel” collection of raw burlap “shipwreck” clothes from Mr. Robinson Crusoe. (United Artists, 1932) Three sets of shirts and shorts of raw burlap worn by Douglas Fairbanks Sr. as “Steve Drexel” during his self-imposed tropical island stranding in the adventure film written by him, Mr. Robinson Crusoe. This is for most film lovers Fairbanks’ most entertaining talkie. Shorts each bear a “Costumers Company, 6356 Hollywood Blvd.” label, plus of special note, one of them also bears a rather personal handwritten cloth note, sewn to the inside of the crotch from a presumed location crew member, “Bon Voyage, Good Bye, Good luck and God bless you and safety home to the lot. Hope these are yours, Doug. Let me hear that you arrive O.K. Sincerely Vivian Rhinehart 1740 Winona Blvd. Hollywood U.S.A.”
