    THE NAKED CITY. Lots of hats, especially many NY street scenes.

    With a lot of these movies I watch with the mute on; better to focus on the lids.

    I'm a big fan of Robert Altman and like this movie very much, actually. I felt it had a lot to say about social class in American society, but besides that - gorgeous hats and wonderful music.

    It's no L.A. CONFIDENTIAL, but it does follow the adventures of the "Hat Squad" Lots of great 40's/ 50's era hats and suits.

    I just missed The Naked City on TCM:mad: ,
    It's been quite sometime since seeing Harlem Nights.
    And the tip top musicianship of the cast of Kansas City,
    caused me to almost forget about everything else...
    I say ALMOST, because I didn't overlook
    Jennifer J's gams!

    The Lost City -- the overall elegance of the wardrobe is great

    Just saw a so-so movie last night called "Leatherheads" with George Clooney. The movie was okay, but the costumes were fantastic. Lots of Caps, Homburgs, and a few Fedoras. But it wasn't just the hats, the suits and jackets were all outstanding. Clooney sports a leather jacket that looks very much like an Aero half belt, nicely broken in. There are also some cool vintage cars and a motorbike. The movie is set in 1925, and I enjoyed watching it just for the wardrobe.

    Like many folks, it was Indiana Jones who got me started on my road to fedora wearing when I was a youngster. However, that's not quite the entire story either. My two other heroes at the time wore hats and they were James Bond and Michael Jackson. Although more people know the latter for his more stingier brimmed black fedora from his famous Billie Jean performance at Motown 25, for me I really liked his wardrobe from the movie Moonwalker. The Smooth Criminal music video part is the most well known part, but in entire short film he also wore a black pinstriped version of the 30s styled white suit mostly remembered. Great suit, and great hat imo.

    Hat influences

    Any hat worn by the Duke and the three nicely styled hats worn by Tom Selleck in Last Stand at Saber River, Quiglely, Down Under and Crossfire Trail.

    Roy Jackson of Jaxonbilt Hats has been kind enough to recreate all three for me over the last few years.

    My interest in the Indy fedora came later although I watched many classic movies on Sunday afternoons with my Mom. Most of which had nicely styled fedoras worn by Hollywood royalty.

    Cheers.

    Pirates of the Caribbean. Captain Jack Sparrow's hat...what a lid!


    Kidding.


    Don't we all really want to be pirates?

    We sails into Havana harbor under the cover of darkness, now. Then we puts a party ashore to empty that Partagas warehouse. Next, return to the ship they do, all the while obliged to be a pillagin' and a plunderin' as much Havana Club rum as they go. Aye, thirsty work it'll be. Perhaps we'll heft one together at the La Floridita before we again set sail. Truly no one'll recognize us there. Then, with all our guns a-blazin' we fights our way back out to sea! Come sunup, it'll be smooth waters, wind at our backs, and sun to our faces...rum and cigars all about! Arrrr! (Note to self: Make cellphone call home to Lulu...will be staying late at the office, don't wait up.)

    As to more contemporary movies, Keanu Reeves had a pretty nice topper in "A Walk in the Clouds" (1995). Not too many pics showing the full view, but here is one and here is another.

    Not only am familiar Slim, but much of the clothing and hats were mine in this film. it was disappointing how little it did in the box office.

    Gangs of New York. Top hats everywhere, and in colors I had never seen before. Great accents? Not so much.

    My vote is for A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT. Fantastic style throughout.

    I was really shocked at how quickly it vanished from the big screens, which happily is where I saw it!
    It really gets in your head that one. The first day after I'd seen it if you asked me I would have said 'it's OK'... three days later, 'it's quite good' and by a week later " what a masterpiece" as it sunk in. I bought the DVD and have watched it many times, and consider it a classic movie. What a thrill it must have been to work on!
