This awesome vintage shirt is from a special screening of 1993 Disney movie Cool Runnings, which was sponsored by the Jamaica Tourist Board and Air Jamaica. The back of the shirt includes an autographed signature from one of the film's stars, Doug E. Doug. The actor began his career as a stand up comedian at the age of 17 and he has since been featured in films like Hangin' With the Homeboys, Class Act, and Eight Legged Freaks, although his role as Sanke Coffie in Cool Runnings continues to be his most famous.
The movie also starred John Candy, Leon Robinson, Rawle D. Lewis, Malik Yoba, and Raymond J. Barry. It was based loosely around the story of the Jamaica national bobsled team's debut at the 1988 Winter Olympics in Calgary, Canada. The film was originally intended to be a serious sports drama titled Blue Maaga and Disney executives supposedly were originally hoping for Kurt Russell to play the role of Irving Blitzer. John Candy, however, insisted on playing the role and even agreed to take a pay cut in order to do the movie. Cool Runnings was one of several Disney films directed by Jon Turteltaub, who also directed 3 Ninjas and National Treasure.
