    "Dick Tracy" (1990)
    "Mobsters" (1991)
    "The Sting" (1973)
    "The St. Valentine's Day Massacre" (1967)
    "The Untouchables" (1987)
    "Dillinger" (1973)

    Of course, this is in no way a slight to the Indiana Jones series of films. Just in addition to his film series.

    What's everybody else think?

    Ahhh...Casablanca! One of my all-time faves too. (I don't really think of it as a fedora flick, but it is still a classic set in the Golden Era.

    Guess you're right, the fedoras do make minimal appearances. But I never miss a chance to talk about Casablanca!

    If looking for fedoras and Bogie, why not Maltese Falcon (1941)? Arguably not his best movie, but he, Ward Bond, others, all sport fedoras

    And on a lighter note
    Harvey (1950) Jimmy Stewart not only wears a fedora, he carries one for the puca
    His Girl Friday (1940) Cary Grant wears his fedora quite a bit, Ralph Bellamy puts a check in his hat band, the court house press room is full of newspapermen - most with fedoras (one guy has a homburg, and the visitor from the Governor has a derby/bowler)

    I'll keep my list limited to films made since the Golden Age that are a recreation of that time period, because of actual period films there are just too many good ones to name.

    1. Miller's Crossing
    2. Last Man Standing
    3. Road To Perdition
    4. L.A. Confidential
    5. Dead Men Don't Wear Plaid
    6. Farewell My Lovely (1975 with Robert Mitchum)
    7. Hammett (1982)
    8. The Untouchables (1987)
    9. Capone's Boys
    10. Blood Brothers (Hong Kong 2004)

    Two TV series worth noting are: Boardwalk Empire (of course), and my personal favorite: Fallen Angels/Perfect Crimes (Showtime 1993-95)

    If we're limiting our list to newer films that portray earlier times, then the ones already mentioned are great. I will add:

    Seabiscuit - 2003
    A River Runs Through It - 1992 (Many different hat styles, but some nice fedoras in the mix)
    Tucker, The Man and His Dream - 1988 (This movie broke my heart when I watched it, based on a true story)

    Ahh, I knew there was another Coen Brothers film I should have put on my list. Can't believe that one skipped my mind. Great hat film and a true tribute to classic noir.

    Thought of a couple more...

    City Heat (1984), and, reluctantly... Harlem Nights (1989).... The language in that show's attrocious but the great acting and the fedoras are abundant throughout.

    Public Enemies with Johnny Depp (2009).
    Not the greatest hat film but, I love Depps oxblood colored fedora about a fourth of the way through the film.

    I still haven't seen this one. How important is John Slattery's role in the movie?

    The 'standards' that most folks like:

    1. Road To Perdition
    2. Miller's Crossing
    3. Last Man Standing

    ...and pretty much any movie made in the 30's & 40's.
