I don't know if you Loungers watch this cable show, but from time to time a customer comes in to sell a hat. On an episode last night, a young guy strolls in with a cowboy hat he states the seller in Arizona claimed was worn by Wayne in Rio Lobo or Rio Bravo. Hey, I'm a Fedora Lounge member. I spotted this "authentic" number as a Drill Instructor's hat, even looked stiff like wool, was the color of old tea and had vent holes on each side with an additional third opening in the front on the crown to accommodate a US badgeor other military insignia. Yes, somehow it had been re-blocked to look like a Western hat. But who's kidding who? The pawn shopper owners had a former Hollywood prop man drop by to authenticate. No dice. It was never worn by the Duke. Not a pretty story, nut one that had to be told.
