While searching the internet for Hat movie facts, I found some interesting little known details. Obscure enough that most people could miss it, I want to make you a favor by creating ordered lists with the most intriguing hidden details.

Most of them are not blatantly obvious to be observed at first sight, so take your time and read carefully. We have extensive definitions that accurately explain any behind the scene meaning or famous dialogues.

In The Hateful Eight (2015) when John Root throws his stew in Daisy's face, you see Joe Gage/Grouch Douglas get up ready to fight in the back, briefly breaking his facade and giving himself away. Nobody notices though. (I'm not tech savvy so sorry for substandard video)

Trivia

I have collected all the famous movie trivia questions with answers from Reddit and other sources. They can be very useful in quizzes or games, or simply to learn more information. Most of the fun Hat details are suitable for kids.

  1. The man who plays Stu is not an actor but actually a part-time business analyst. He was hired for the film under the impression that he would be working on computers, and that he would play a small part in the film.

  2. Kurt Russell accidentally smashed a one of a kind, 145-year-old guitar that was on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum. This is the take they kept in the film, and you can see Jennifer Jason Leigh's genuine reaction, as she knew it wasn't the replica.

  3. Displayed in its end credits where major sexual abuse scandals involving the Catholic church were uncovered.

  4. The younger version of Susan Sarandon's character, is played by her daughter Eva Amurri.

  5. The TV subtitle that mistakenly says Jimmy is engaged is a reference to the Beatles' appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show.

  6. Ennio Morricone included some musical cues from one of his earlier scores, The Thing (1982). Both films deal with individuals holed up in a snowbound location becoming increasingly paranoid of each other. Both star Kurt Russell.

  7. The sign for Minnie's Haberdashery is written In Quentin Tarantino's handwriting

  8. 's The Fugitive

Hat Plot: Eirinn O' Kelly shows and discusses his various hats. The show is also riddled in social and political satire that is deeply poignant in today's modern society.

I am pretty sure that you've watched Hat, maybe in a theater near you or on the small screen, but probably not many of the small details have taken your attention. Most of the previous facts are hidden for some reason, but still, there is plenty of randomly forgetten stuff that makes the movie unique and interesting. The more you know, the more fascinated you'll be about Hat and will watch it online, download or stream it again and again.
