    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.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
