    Glenn Ford's Bowler Hat from "Pocketful of Miracles." As Dave "the Dude" Conway, Glenn Ford (1916-2006) found one of his finest roles in Pocketful of Miracles (1961), directed by Frank Capra (his last film) and co-starring Bette Davis, Hope Lange, and Ann-Margret. This is Ford's black bowler from the film, with "Glen (sic) Ford" written on the inside band, along with the embossed "K.M. Biggs Inc. Lumberton N.C.," "Etchison Crafted," and "Challenger Quality." There is a black band around the crown; some wear on the brim and a small spot of staining on the front, and the inside band is loose, but otherwise it is in Fine condition. This is a stylish keepsake from a well-remembered film and a star of more than six decades worth of movies.
