How Not to Wear a Hat – Film Noir Edition (Updated ++)


This mystery gent has a rather crushed chapeau.


Well, I suppose you could wear a hat this way….

Please congratulate Bob Levinson, Jenny M, Dewey Webb and Don Danard for identifying Tuesday’s mystery gent.


This movie is a bonanza of hats worn strangely!

Please congratulate Dewey Webb, Jenny M and Mike Hawks for identifying the movie and the mystery gents, and Mary Mallory, Bob Levinson, LC, Patrick, Claire Lockhart and Don Danard for identifying Wednesday’s mystery fellow.


One more hat worn badly.

Our mystery movie has been identified by William, LC, Patrick and Stacia!

    It’s Grand Central Murder (1942) with Stephen McNally in the first pic, Sam Levene in the second (and Cecilia Parker in the background I think, she looks like the girl from the Andy Hardy movies), and Sam Levene and Van Heflin in the third. Those hats are all wrong, even the dancer’s bow is crushed!
