EFSP's Dazzling Dozen: Top Hats

New series alert at EFSP! During our trip to the Pordenone Silent Film Festival earlier this month, we did a post on twelve silent cowboys and liked the concept. So, last week we started a new series especially for Postcard Friendship Friday with a dozen star postcards with a theme. Last week it was stars with their dogs. Today we present you our twelve favourite postcards of stars wearing amazing hats.
