Hats in the movies


Recommended Posts

You're speaking my language brother! I love hats. A good hat makes any clothes ensemble look better.  I've had a few eight-panel/newsboy caps through the years but never had the privilege of owning a fedora, the king of headwear, mainly due to my oversized noggin.

I make it a habit to pay special attention to the hats in films from the '30s thru the early '50s, the golden age of cranial haberdashery, after that the switch to stingy brims began along with the nation's decline.

Here's one of my favorite hat scenes from the Astaire/Rogers film Swing Time. You get a nice assortment in this one. Fred in his Top Hat, Victor Moore with a bowler (another one I long to own), and a couple of very nice snap brim fedoras. Speaking of, check out that angle on Frank Jenks brim! Now that's how you make a statement!
