I couldn’t help but notice some nice footwear on the feet of the actors when I flipped through the pages of Taschen’s new book: “Film noir. 100 All-time favorites”.
Dan Duryea as the gangster Heidt with Split-toe derbys in Fritz Lang’s classic “Woman in the window” from 1944.
Sterling Hayden alias Dix Handley dressed in plain-toe derbys in John Huston’s “The Asphalt Jungle” from 1950. Could be cordovan.
Eddie Constantine as Lemmie Caution on the ground getting pushed around with some nice cap-toe derby spectators in the french movie “La môme vert-de-gris / Poison Ivy” from 1953.
