BRIEFING

Murrow flick nicely topped
Add another Hollywood feather to Henrietta hatter Dave Brown's cap.

Brown's work appears in Good Night, and Good Luck - George Clooney's film about Edward R. Murrow.

You'd be forgiven if you didn't notice amid all the cigarette smoke in Clooney's re-creation of the CBS studios, but trust us, Brown's hats are there.

Of course, this is not the first time Brown's high-end lids have shown up on film. You can see his work in Chicago, The Road to Perdition and The Aviator, among others. Brown's handiwork will also make an appearance in Memoirs of a Geisha, which opens later this month. And stars such as Shaquille O'Neal and Elton John have paid for a Brown original.

You can check out a list of the films Brown's hats have appeared in and get an idea of prices (hint: they're not cheap) at Brown's Web site: www .davebrownhats.com.
