Jack Prince (on the right, obviously) in one of his appearances on The Andy Griffith Show. This is the hat he wore most often when he was on the show (six appearances, three as character Rafe Hollister) and he wore it brim up all the way 'round (even more so front and back). Great casual appearance, and it suits the character very well in my opinion. Now if I could just find one like it for myself... :D

Reminds me of my 60's stingy brim Knox.

The hat and vest remind me of Art Carney in the "Honeymooners".

The Rose of Cimarron, Rose Ella Dunn (1878 - 1955)

Rose had four brothers, two of which were outlaws & their family Ranch was the frequent hideout for the Doolin & the Dalton gangs. At the age of 15 she took up with George "Bitter Creek" Newcomb, 11 yrs her senior. It was Newcomb who gave her the nickname The Rose of Cimarron.

IMG_1819.jpg


Rose's ticket to infamy came in Sept 1893 when she raced to Newcomb with a Winchester rifle & two ammunition belts as he lay wounded in the street in a shootout with the law in Ingalls, OK. Rose managed to escape with the gang & nursed them all back to health.

Three marshals died that day & as a result bounties of $5K ea were placed on the heads of Newcomb & Charley Pierce. Two of Rose's brothers killed them both to collect.

Rose was never held accountable at trial & went on to marry an OK politician & live quietly until his death some 33 yrs later. Sixteen yrs later she would marry again & continue to live quietly until her death in 1955.

William Brooke Joyce, nicknamed Lord Haw-Haw, was an American-born fascist politician and Nazi propaganda broadcaster to the United Kingdom during World War II. He took German citizenship in 1940.
Born: 24 April 1906, New York, New York, United States
Died: 3 January 1946, HMP Wandsworth, London
Buried: 18 August 1976, New Cemetery, Bohermore, Galway, Ireland

Joyce was convicted of one count of high treason in 1945 and sentenced to death, with the Court of Appeal and the House of Lords both upholding his conviction. He was hanged on 3 January 1946, making him the last person to be executed for treason in the United Kingdom. Theodore Schurch was hanged the following day, but for the crime of treachery rather than treason. (Is there a difference?)

Listening to his broadcasts was officially discouraged, but it was not illegal, and many Britons listened. There was a desire by civilian listeners to hear what the other side was saying, as information during wartime was strictly censored. At the height of his influence, in 1940, Joyce had an estimated six million regular and 18 million occasional listeners in the United Kingdom. The broadcasts always began with the announcer's words, "Germany calling, Germany calling." These broadcasts urged the British people to surrender and were well-known for their jeering, sarcastic and menacing tone.

The Reich Security Main Office commissioned Joyce to give lectures at the University of Berlin for SS members in the winter of 1941–42 on the topic of "English fascism and acute questions concerning the British world empire".

Joyce recorded his final broadcast on 30 April 1945, during the Battle of Berlin. Rambling and audibly drunk, he chided Britain for pursuing the war beyond mere containment of Germany and repeatedly warned of the "menace" of the Soviet Union. He signed off with a final defiant "Heil Hitler and farewell." There are conflicting accounts as to whether this last programme was actually transmitted, although a recording was found in the Apen studios. The next day, Radio Hamburg was seized by British forces, and on 4 May Wynford Vaughan-Thomas used it to make a mock "Germany Calling" broadcast denouncing Joyce.

Besides broadcasting, Joyce's duties included writing propaganda for distribution among British prisoners of war, whom he tried to recruit into the British Free Corps of the Waffen-SS. He wrote a book Twilight Over England promoted by the German Ministry of Propaganda, which unfavourably compared the evils of allegedly Jewish-dominated capitalist Britain with the alleged wonders of National Socialist Germany. Adolf Hitler awarded Joyce the War Merit Cross (First and Second Class) for his broadcasts, although he never met Joyce.

I’m afraid that is a picture of James Joyce, the famous Irish author of Ulysses! but happy to learn more about Lord Haw Haw—who I know about from watching Twelve O’Clock High, one of my favorite films. Cheers
