    Great hat movie...




    Advertisements
    Last weekend we had some friends over and decided to watch a movie. After deciding not to go out and rent one we looked through the collection we have and found one the other couple had not seen. "O Brother, Where Art Thou?". It is one of my favorite comedies and after seeing it again I realized it is a great movie for vintage hats. It is set in the early 1930's and there are some great scenes in a town square where you see dozens and dozens of men in classic fedoras and caps. In fact just about every man and most women in the movie have a hat of some kind, from ragged to classic. Check it out if you haven't seen it.

    Great film. There was a recent "Hat Movies" thread where I mentioned that many of the Coen Brothers movies are filled with wonderful hats. Miller's Crossing, Barton Fink, The Man Who Wasn't There, and The Hudsucker Proxy are all fantastic hat movies.

    Honeydripper, a film by John Sayles

    is also a great hat movie... Actually it was a pretty good all-round movie with Danny Glover. Saw it at an art theater around here, probably go to video soon enough.
    Ride it like you stole it! (oops, wrong forum...)

    Never heard of it, but I love Glover. Hope to catch it soon.
    By the by, in Places In the Heart... Glover wears a great beater!

    It's interesting that a question mark was included in the title of "Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?" because question marks in titles are considered bad luck in the film making industry. And still the film went on to do very well.
    So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

    The Soggy Bottom Boys are quite hilarious.

    thanks Ipoke..many of those hats were mine and also much of the clothing was rented from us when we were still in the vintage biz. What a bugger to find 1930s coveralls!!!

    O Brother... was a great flick. Often times I get the urge to "R-u-n-n-o-f-t!".
    I also just saw another Coen movie, "No Country For Old Men", good film, lots of Western hats.

    Ask the Dust is a so-so movie about the superb author John Fante. The clothing on the other hand is fantastic!

    I'm watching "They Live By Night". Its an old film noir flick and the hats AND cars are great.
