    Description

    Howard Hughes' Fedora. An aviator, engineer, industrialist, movie producer, playboy, eccentric, and one of the wealthiest people in the world, Howard Hughes was easily one of the most distinctive and controversial figures in American history. Dismissed in Hollywood as nothing more than a rich man's son, he spent a then unheard $3.8 million of his own money to produce Hell's Angels, the start of a 25-year filmmaking career that culminated in sole ownership of RKO Pictures. This beige fedora-style Stetson was owned and worn by Hughes, and has the initials "HRH" stamped on the sweatband. In Very Fine condition with a light amount of wear and some mild overall staining. Accompanied by COA from L.A. Prop & Wardrobe Co.
