This auction is for a padded vest worn in the filming of the movie 'AMERIKA' (1987) which starred KRIS KRISTOFFERSON / SAM NEILL / CHRISTINE LAHTI / ROBERT URICH. The vest has vertical padded areas on the front of the shoulders that had 4 hand grenades attached - I am showing a picture of the cover from the movie that shows these. The hand grenades ARE NOT INCLUDED in the auction. You can see in the pictures of the vest where they had been. The vest has 2 large pockets on the front also. It fastens in the front with a velcro strip.
The Vest measures approximately a 44" chest.
'AMERIKA' sparked much controversy from many camps long before it even aired! The Soviet government at one point threatened to shut down the ABC News Moscow Bureau if the mini-series aired (although this threat was never carried out.) This prompted ABC President John B. Sias to state "We're going to run that program come rain, blood, or horse manure." The critics of Amerika, meanwhile, have their own irony to face. The attention they have focused on a program they despise has set the stage for what could be one of TV's highest-rated mini-series since Roots. The series plunks us into the middle of a small Nebraska community and a cross section of citizens trying to cope with their repressive new society. Devin Milford (Kris Kristofferson), a former antiwar activist and candidate for President, has just been released after six years in a prison camp. Returning home, he finds his proud but disillusioned farm family hanging on to the last vestiges of their dwindling land. A boyhood friend (Robert Urich) has become a county administrator and, almost against his will, a rising star in the new government hierarchy. Everyday life in Amerika is not hard to recognize. People still complain about the government and the hard economic times, only now it is the Soviets who are to blame... The totalitarian regime has its brutal side (storm troopers set farmhouses on fire and destroy exile camps to stifle dissent; a rebellious teen is caught and brainwashed). But for the most part, the melodrama is muted, the mood somber and contemplative, the complexities rich. A KGB colonel (Sam Neill) turns out to be one of the movie's most articulate and charming characters. And, despite the anti-Communist theme, the film is a subtle refutation of Reagan-era optimism. These Americans, after all, are not can-do patriots but meek, dispirited folks who simply want to get along. "Just surviving," says Devin's sister (Christine Lahti). "No heroics, no strength of character, not even dignity."
