      Adapted posthumously from the circa 1938 original pre-production drawing for the 1938 book, The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins.

      When Ted Geisel was twelve (1916), his silent movie hero was Douglas Fairbanks Sr., who made a dozen films that year. Fairbanks’ strong suit was playing hatted heroes in epic costume dramas including Don Juan, The Thief of Baghdad, The Black Pirate, Zorro, D’Artagnan, Petruchio, The Gaucho, and in 1922—Robin Hood. Even as an adult, Fairbanks remained Ted’s favorite actor. Bartholomew Cubbins can’t help but conjure up Robin Hood and his famous hat. Errol Flynn’s Oscar nominated Technicolor film, The Adventures of Robin Hood, opened on May 14, 1938; The 500 Hats of Bartholomew Cubbins hit the bookstores that fall.
