The Hateful Eight Costume Display
Now on View
The Autry: Imagination Gallery
About the Exhibition
No one has managed to put their unique stamp on the Western genre in recent years quite like writer and director Quentin Tarantino. Elaborate costumes from Tarantino’s latest film, The Hateful Eight, are now on view in the Imagination Gallery. Designed by Courtney Hoffman and on loan from Cine-Manic Productions, Inc., the display features costumes worn by Major Marquis Warren (Samuel L. Jackson), John Ruth (Kurt Russell), and Daisy Domergue (Jennifer Jason Leigh).
“The buffalo coat—or ‘Big Boy,’ as we call it—is based on a coat in the Autry’s collection. I was able to see it in person and examine the construction from the 1880s,” Hoffman said. “I’m thrilled that the film’s iconic coat will be on view at the Autry, a museum that houses one of the nation’s most significant collections of Western film artifacts.”
