Footnotes

  • This was originally acquired by 'Jilly', who worked for the film's costume designer, Milena Canonero. Jilly was a friend of the vendor's brother at the time and she recently confirmed the provenance of the hat: 'I was working as an assistant to Milena Canonero at the time and with your brother being such a great Kubrick fan, I wanted to get him something special. The workshop was full of props and Milena kindly let me have the hat.'
    The slip of paper suggests that this was worn by Malcolm McDowell in his role of Alexander 'Alex' de Large. The bowler, together with white boiler suit and false eyelashes to one eye, completes the look of him and his fellow 'Droogs' as they indulge in violence and, ultimately, murder.
