Description

    Glenn Ford's Personal Hats. This set of three hats from Ford's personal wardrobe includes a U.S. Naval Reserve US Navy commander's dress uniform hat, crown missing, with unattached all-weather cover; an olive drab Marine Corp uniform cap with Naval Reserve insignia pin; and a brown wool flat cap with the initials "GF" perforated into the leather sweatband. The latter two are accompanied by b&w 8" x 10" photos of Ford wearing them. In 1958, Ford joined the U.S. Naval Reserve and was commissioned as a lieutenant commander and designated a public affairs officer, promoting the Navy through various media. Later, Ford went to Vietnam in 1967 for a month-long tour of duty as a location scout for the training film Global Marine, traveling with a combat camera crew from the demilitarized zone south to the Mekong Delta. The flat cap was acquired by Ford while on location in London during the filming of It Started with a Kiss (1959). The uniform hats are in overall Very Fine condition with some wear from age and use; the flat cap is in Excellent condition. From the Glenn Ford Estate.
