Star Item
  • Description

    Title reads: "Tin Hats for all".

    Location of events unknown.

    Various shots of the production line in a factory making tin helmets. We see machines pressing out the metal and male and female factory workers painting, drilling, buffing and fitting the lining inside the hats. The hats will provide protection for fire watchers and the general public (for a small price).

    United States of America (USA).

    Various C/Us of glamorous models displaying new hat fashions. Some of the girls are kneeling behind a counter with their heads inside hat boxes, the lids are removed to reveal them. The hats are a bit whacky - very large, big patterns with crazy sculpted designs.

    Note: latter part of item (about American hat fashions) has also been transferred on tape *PM1111* (film id 1111.34) under title U.S. HAT FASHIONS as part of 41/28.
