Oddity of the Week

Here’s another fun bit of old stuff: Just as movie theaters now require their patrons to turn off their cell phones, women were once required to take off their hats so they wouldn’t block other peoples’ views.  And just as movies are now preceded by a short, often humorous video reminding you to turn off your phone, here’s a short film reminding women to remove their hats.

Director D.W. Griffith made countless shorts of this sort; it also stars a prolific silent-film actress with the wonderful name of Florence Lawrence.
