Hair Dress Through the Ages (in the Ephemeral section of Open Video Project. Also, film #638 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Hollywood]

This featurette tries to cover the history of hairstyles and hats from caveman days onwards. Unfortunately, they suddenly run out of time around the 17th century. Still, they got a chance to show many outrageous and silly dos and chapeaus. It's narrated by the guy who did Ant City and Bee City, so there's plenty of winging it as well. A rather silly short subject.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ****. Weirdness: ****. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
