Legendary Hollywood costumer, Luster Bayless, confirmed that the Duke’s bandana was used in later films after being “washed down” with a darker dye to give it an aged look. Mr. Bayless had the fortune to first work with John Wayne on "McClintock" and continued to be his personal costumer through to the end of his career. Sam Elliott also chose Mr. Bayless to do his personal wardrobe for all of his Western films.
