Laurel and Hardy movie WAY OUT WEST for research. About halfway through, Laurel, having lost a bet, eats part of Hardy's hat. And for the rest of the movie there are big bites missing from the brim of Hardy's hat! This is noteworthy only because "realistic" continuity is never much of a concern in Laurel and Hardy's world. I think it's funny and noble (and tragic, illuminating the human condition?) that somebody on the set decided to make a real commitment to this one thing.
