Not infrequently, these, mishaps befell the arlcient hat while the Burnette skull was parked inside! ' * * * i It was a "go,od" hat. a lucky hat! It started out on that first, eventful, Western trek with Smiley and he was loath to replace the old- sky-piece. He'd keep adding supports. A stitch Of thread, a pin, a paper-clip or staple. Anything that would hold it together through another picture. In fact, more than once, a bit of scotch-tape held wandering sections in some semblance of shape until more permanent repairs could be effected. « * « . It is a que'silon whether Smiley Burnetle absorbed a littlfe character from this venerable hat or whether the soft, old, felt acquired some of the Burnette personality. Certain it is that, like the friendship of Smiley, i,t wore well, and comfortably. The aura of rugged simplicity could have e'manated from either—or both. With a wilted brim propped skyward at the prow, in dn ."off-the-face" tilt, there was more than a suggestion of open- faced honesty and naivete. * « * More than two decades of moppets came to know "the funny cowboy with the turned up hat brim." In his 'personal appearances, thousands of kiddies tried on this IQ-gallon "sieve." Thousands more wore it while their pictures were taken on the Burnette knee. Ice cream and lollipop stains mingled with prop "blood" and the Fuller's Earth of countless movie "deserts." * * * Still possessing a rakish air in its dog-eared, tattered, old-age, Smiley's h&t has been withdrawn from the rigors of a movie workday. "' At last reports, Sjniley's head had seconded the motion! Together, they'll play about 15 weeks of fair dates, each year while the Burnettes leisurely tour the country. — And, if Smiley doesn't always tip his hat while in costume,—it's not a lack of courtesy!
