    I have a coca brown Adam Executive Whippet clone that I wear with a brown leather Bomber jacket and have never heard a peep. My "work hat" is a tan Wormser Stratoliner clone. Yesterday I was wearing it with a black nylon jacket with my company name embroidered on it and you would have thunk my name was Harrison. Several people, including a customer who has seen me in that hat for years, made Indy comments. You just smile and nod. Sometimes there's nothing you can do not to look like Indiana Jones to some people.

    I always like that character... Ken Curtis was "Festus"... it just never dawned on me to call someone wearing a western hat by that name...

    I was at a country antiques store yesterday and there on a table was a long, neatly coiled leather whip. I couldn't help thinking that, with a bit of practice, it could be good to whip that out (er, no pun intended, honest) from under the leather coat next time someone called, 'Hey, Indy'.

    Perfect!

    Also, I watched "Mister Roberts" recently, in which Ken Curtis played the sailor named Dolan: it takes a really fine actor to pull off two roles so completely different.

    Ken Curtis was the man. Hilarious in "The Searchers," sang beautifully in "Rio Grande." Was in one of those TNT westerns, "Conagher," maybe, a lot later.

    Forgot about him being John Ford's son in law, which explains why he's a background character, and sometimes a bit more, in many of his movies, including a non-hayseed role in "The Quiet Man." Whenever I think of "The Searchers," one of my favorites, I always hear Ken Curtis saying "He married a Comanche squaw! Haw Haw Haw," and his fight with Marty, which stopped for a moment to arrange the safety of "somebody's fiddle." A great character actor.

    the fight scene in the "SEARCHERS" is one of my favorites in any movie I have ever watched, it is hilarious.

    I caught Ken Curtis in an old episode of "Perry Mason" some years ago: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0673219/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_30 His role was very different from Festus or his "Searchers" character, quite unlikable as I recall.

    (It also featured Kenneth Tobey, who some years before had starred in "Whirlybirds.")
