What business did Susan Clark have in wearing a hat this ugly, even in the early 70s?

On Columbo

The episode was great, even if the plot was thin.

Why would she not have bleached her mustache?

OMG, the trolls on here can literally come up with threads on anything. .

It's called fashion. Looks divine to me!

What Tallulah said at r3 said.

70s fashions have nothing to answer for precisely because they were so distinct, over the top, and fun, to boot. Hell, bring back the leisure suit.

I'm glad 70's style flare and wide leg jeans are back.

I HATE skinny jeans and those ugly jeggings. NO human being looks wearing them, no matter how young you are and even if you're in superb physical shape.

With that Pan Am midcentury stewardess hairdo, OP, she had to do SOMETHING.

Lulu had a similar hat back in the 60s.

It's a "baker boy" or "newsboy" hat. 1970s style.

I had a denim hat similar to that when I was in high school. I thought I was the coolest thing ever.

It went well with my knee-high boots with my jeans tucked snugly in the tops.

Baker Boy caps were popularized by you-know-who.

I thought shew was trans when she was on Webstor.

It seems to be recycled from one of the lesser Barbra Steisand movies.

I saw the thread title and knew *exactly* which one it was going to be. The whole ensemble was unfortunate.

Even when I was a child I couldn't stand Webster and thought it was such a shit show.

OP, you could pull this off. Nobody would laugh at you and the hat would go so well with your Tabi boots, too!

I always hated that style. A friend had a denim one he loved and I hated. One night I lost control, snatched it off his head, and hid it so he'd have to stop wearing it.

As much business as she had selling Webster to Michael Jackson when work got hard to find.

She costarred in [italic]Coogan's Bluff[/italic], the movie that inspired the series.

Babs made a seamless transition from Baker Boy to Borsalino.

I thought Susan and Alex Karas were in a lavender marriage.

She scares me.

I thought the costuming in that episode was phenomenal, given that the character was "free" for the first time and finding herself, with more money than sense.

by Anonymousreply 24May 25, 2024 12:19 PM

Well, she did play Babe Didrikson to great effect.

Great thread title. However, the hat isn't ugly. Her face is.

I guess in OP's world actors have veto power over their wardrobe.

Her boyfriend should have done something to plump those lips the old-fashioned way.

Wrong, r20, it inspired McCloud.

by Anonymousreply 30May 25, 2024 2:26 PM

I’d rather discuss the lavender marriage she shared with Alex Karras, as R22 brings up.

by Anonymousreply 31May 25, 2024 2:39 PM

It should have inspired fire R30. To burn that hat.

by Anonymousreply 32May 25, 2024 2:42 PM

You're right, r30. I guess I muddled Million Dollar Mysteries.

by Anonymousreply 33May 25, 2024 7:23 PM

She kind of looked like David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust.
