When we left the cast and crew of ‘The Spirit‘ yesterday , actor Dan Lauria (who plays commissioner Dolan in the film) expressed his enthusiasm for the wardrobe he had in director Frank Miller’s modern noir vision of Will Eisner‘s comic.
“I loved the costume you picked out for me. Right out of Bart MacLane’s closet,” Lauria said, referring to the actor who appeared in over a hundred classic movies including ‘The Maltese Falcon‘.
Of course the most important costume to get right were the threads Gabriel Macht wore as The Spirit.
“I worked hard on Gabe’s costume because at first it looked really foolish, until we spruced you up with the black outfit and everything,” Miller told reporters but credits costume designer Michael Dennison for bringing the leading man’s look to fruition.
