You are somewhat correct, in that Indy ditches the hat not only while in disguise, but for the end of Raiders. But since we would have to believe that he kept it somehow while being dragged through the sea on the periscope of a submarine, we should forgive that.Originally Posted by Edward
Yes, the Washington hat is gray, as is the hat he wears when he boards the plane for Nepal to find Marion. Spielberg wanted Indy to have a "travel hat" that was different from his "field hat". The gray travel hat was dropped until Indy 4, when Spiel insisted upon it's return. The gray hat is then lost in the restaurant brawl, thus being unavailable for the wedding.Refresh my memory, here.... in the Washington scene at the end of Raiders,isn't the hat grey? But then in both Temple and Crusade we only see him wearing the by then iconic brown one. In Skull he only wears the grey one for that brief period where he is headed away from everything familiar to him - the brown one comes right back out when he gets a sniff of adventure once more.... and - of course- it is te brown he wears following his wedding.
