Just to show off my ignorance, is this a reproduction of an actual military coat, or just a movie prop?

There were several patterns of mackinaw used by the US military from 1900-1950ís. The one Lee Marvin is Westin I this movie is very reminiscent of those used prior to WW1 and during.

So did the enemy really use chain shot to take down the rigging when you were in?
