    I don't know what that last hat is either,but it's fantastic! Looks like a Homburg-esque hat that has had a diamond or teardrop crease in it.

    Jeez, if he were around today, he'd be stealing all the ladies.
     
  9. I don't think he had it easy with pickford. Although they did live in some style.
     
  10. Maybe not, but they were married for 42 years. That's not bad at all for a "Hollywood" couple.

    DD, he wears the shower cap, a/k/a an ashetu or Nudu hat from the Bamileke tribe of Cameroon, west Africa, underneath. And underneath all of that, he wears a bandana. His head must be plenty warm.

    You’re welcome, DD.
    Speaking of Mr. Gibbons, my avatar is a photo of he and I together on stage... well my face and hat are, anyway. I was in a video that was projected onto screens on either side of their stage during their tour a couple of years ago.
