    Dodge City Hat (Warner Brothers, 1939). Autographed Hat and Photos (4) (8" X 10") and (1) (3.5" X 5.75" Photo Postcard.) .
    Warner Brothers pulled out all the stops to publicize Errol Flynn's new movie, Dodge City. They rounded up a bunch of Warner Brothers stars, put them on the Santa Fe Special train, and carried them all the way to Dodge City, Kansas for the April 1st,1939 premiere. This incredible artifact was probably signed before and during the tour, both on the train and at the studio. It has no fewer than 33 signatures from top stars! It reads like the "Who's Who" of the Warner Brothers stable. In the top of the hat, the following have signed: AL JOLSON, JOHN GARFIELD, FRANK McHUGH. In the upper hat side: ERROL FLYNN, PAUL MUNI, GILBERT ROLAND, EDDIE CANTOR, LYA LYS, and BEVERLY BERNS. In the brim top: HUMPHREY BOGART, HOOT GIBSON, DOROTHY LAMOUR, ANN SHERIDAN, GUINN "BIG BOY" WILLIAMS, BUCK JONES, WAYNE MORRIS, JOHN PAYNE, JEAN PARKER, JANE WYMAN, ALAN HATLEY, ROSEMARY LANE, MAXIE ROSENBLOOM, GEORGE FISHER, FRANCES ROBINSON, and PRISCILLA LANE. In the brim bottom: CAROLE LOMBARD, HARRY LANG, MARY LIVINGSTON, PENNY SINGLETON, PHIL HARRIS, BILLY GILBERT, and KENNY BAKER. Included in the lot are four photos of the stars on the train and at the premiere, and a photo postcard of the stars. The hat has some small staining, but is in excellent condition, and the signatures are all crystal clear! You won't want to wear it, but you'll sure enjoy showing it to anyone who loves film stars from the Golden Age of Hollywood! Fine/Very Fine.
