LIZA MINNELLI HAT FROM "CABARET"
Allied Artists, 1972
A black felt bowler hat worn by Liza Minnelli as she portrayed Sally Bowles, the role that won her a Best Actress Academy Award; inside lining reads Harrods/Knightsbridge/Made in England, same notation is stamped on the inside leather band as is Made in England/100 Fine Fur Felt/Hand Made. Numerous hats were used for the production as they received much wear and tear, this one now having a crushed brim and a missing bow.
This piece was originally sold in the August 2002 Sotheby's/Gotta Have It! online auction titled "The Personal Property of Liza Minnelli;" a signed 'letter of authenticity' from Minnelli attesting to this fact is included.
