Felt Hat Day!

Dear Cheapaux-ed,

Today is Felt Hat Day, and I have been waiting three-quarters of a year to wish you a happy one!  And to offer you a link:  a recipe for a Buster Keaton porkpie hat.  Yes, a hat recipe is rare indeed!  If you would like a tutorial on it, Dr. Moon Rat can help.

The Damfinos are the International Buster Keaton Society, and they have a place on their website where you can purchase a Buster K. porkpie, if you aren't handy with felt-hat modification.

If you'd rather skip the hat, you can get some Buster Keaton films, at this interesting site for silent movies: Kino Lorber.
