LOL... That is not the Stan that most of us know!
It was taken when he was a young man, before he moved to Montana and became famous! Paul, from the title I thought it would be out own Carbby Stan not some impostor! LOLSM
If Stan didn't sleep all day he wouldn't have to work all night! He just might get caught up on the carbs.
I wonder how Stan and Ollie kept their hats on when the drove along?
There's our boy. Typical T on the back lot. Top bows askew. Is that the registration lashed to the steering column?
That is a location shot. Most of the L & H movies were shot on location, not a studio back lot.
Film makers employ various methods to secure actors' hats.
I have a Saks 5th. hard shell Derby hat like the one in the photo which I wear in the T frequently. It was a tad too loose so I put a little dental impression putty inside the band and pushed it onto my head. The thing is a perfect fit now.
When you have a derby fitting correctly the car will blow over off it's wheels before you will loose the hat!
