  1. Like Gorbachev wearing his backwards all day, & Reagan not pointing it out to him.

    Good, it's not just me. You'd think Stoney Burke would know how to wear a cowboy hat!

    Actually, his hat was only on backwards for a few scenes in the first 12 minutes or so. The shooting schedule must have been so hectic that no one noticed, not even Jack-o. If anyone wishes to watch the episode in question.
    No need to thank me, it's what I do. :D

    I might make up a hat and put a bow on both sides and then watch someone make up a thread about it. :D

    WoW! Now THAT'S a nice hat. Churchill is the brand and they use the model name Rancher, as well?

    Wagon Train was never as good as when Ward Bond was in it! :-D
    And if a Cartwright boy on Bonanza ever fell in love, ya knew she'd croak within the hour!

  8. I’ve been looking for a Churchill 50 or 100 for years. They are not common hats and haven’t been made for quite a while.

    The dent in mine is not intentional. It’s a “character mark” from age and weakness in the felt. I’ve thought about steaming and reshaping it, but I kinda like it. F3AB3786-F427-40D1-B95A-8FC8CD239FD5.jpeg

    Thank you. Yes, sir, it is and they did. Churchill is a brand that in the beginning was produced by Resistol for and sold exclusively by Newman Marcus.

    Most [not all] prop hats used in film have no sweat band. This allows the hat to be worn by most any actor regardless of head size. That said....people that normally do not wear hats have no idea if it is on wrong or not.

    True in many cases, but my hat fetish also has me trying to peek inside some of the hats when the interior momentarily appears. Most seem to have a sweatband. Most also seem to be unlined.

    Not an Open Road, actually the hat in my sig. I cut the brim down to O.R. size and I really like how it turned out. WIN_20210416_15_54_40_Pro.jpg
