John Gielgud “Cassius” leather cuirass armor and gold-embroidered tunic from Julius Caesar. (MGM, 1953) Midriff-length black leather cuirass body armor and knee-length ivory cotton twill under-tunic with gold bullion hem band, worn by John Gielgud as “Cassius” in Julius Caesar. Impressions left in leather at medallion and fastening points throughout indicate alteration for re-purposing in a later production, as lion’s head decorations have been replaced or removed. MGM label in cuirass is marked “J. Gielgud 1599-2224”. Also, Logan Costume Co. incorrectly marked the tunic as “Sir John Gielgud, Ben-Hur” because it is a positive screen match to Julius Caesar, and Gielgud was not in Ben-Hur.
