Two of my all time favorite actors for sure.
Field Marshall Lord Alanbrooke claimed that Winston Churchill was the only guy who did not look funny in a topee...I rarely wear hats of any type. Occasionally a beanie type when shoveling my driveway after the few snowstorms we get here. Or a ball cap once in a while. But when working in my back yard, which is dotted with 75 to 100 ft tall Ponderosa, Cedar and Coulter Pines, I wear a good old American Fiber Helmet AKA tropical helmet like this one. I bought it many years ago at a surplus store in Oceanside just outside of Camp Pendleton.
Two reasons: One, is that it gives good sun protection, and two, the Coulter Pines have pine cones that literally are the size of pineapples ! A little breeze and they will drop from the treetops and come whistling down like a Corsair in a dive. I imagine that getting clobbered by one would require a lot of stitches. The sun helmet offers some protection from aerial bombardment.
