Gotta keep a dame in line.

Alas, that scene isn't in the play. Supposedly, my character "socked her" at some point.

Did you push her down when broke your golf club?

Pretty good story. I got to play that role twice.

Saw the movie once, never the play. Saw the play High Society, the musical it was based on.

It was "Philadelphia Story." I played the Cary Grant part. But this shot wound up looking more film noir. THanks for askin'!

What is the play?

I own this snappy Brooks Brothers fedora, which I've worn in a couple of stage roles. And on the street. here and there.

Would love to find a vintage Dobbs Carlton - hell of a hat maker - but I've got a 7-3/8" head, which is like a basketball with eyes. Hard to fit.

As you gents can see I'm a big fan of hats. Especially after shaving the grape bald for over five years now. Living in Florida it becomes functional to beat back the sun. I also think it allows me to distinguish myself from others in a gentlemanly and fashionable way.
