This sweet long-sleeved shirt features an image of the legendary musician Jim Morrison as he was portrayed by Val Kilmer in the 1991 film The Doors. The movie was directed by Oliver Stone, known for his famous 1983 gangster film Scarface, and it was a biographical film that depicted the life of Jim Morrison during his time as the lead singer to the 1960s rock band The Doors. The movie centered around Morrison's iconic status and influence over 60s counterculture as well as his hippie lifestyle, alcoholism, and recreational drug use. The cast also included Meg Ryan, Kyle Maclachlan, Frank Whaley, Kevin Dillon, and Billy Idol.

Reviews for the film were mixed. While the cast, cinematography, and directing were all praised, the movie also garnered backlash for historical inaccuracies and how Morrison was depicted. Actual Doors band members had contrasting opinions over Stone's involvement as director, and before filming could start Stone had to negotiate with the surviving members of the band as well as their label Elektra Records. The movie was trapped in development hell for almost 10 years as it was considered by multiple studios. Several other actors were also considered for the role of Morrison before Kilmer, some of the potentials included Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, and John Travolta.
