I have a hat that was said to be worn in a marilyn monroe movie in the 1950s not sure which movie. I have a picture of it I could send to anyone who knows about Marilyn. Please if anyone can help me its for a very close friend I would like to surprise with the name of the movie. thankyou
I think it would be worth your while to consult with Mark Bellinghaus (http://www.markbellinghaus.com). He is a very dedicated collector and would probably be able to provide you with accurate information.
I feel I have to state quite explicitly that I am not in anyway associated to him or to his work; I should also warn you that in the opinion of some people (not mine, I don't even know him), he may not be the easiest person to deal with. But dedicated he IS; there is no doubt about that.
P.S. I hope you come back and tell us more about the hat, once you have given it to your friend. ;)
