Filmed mostly in Littlehampton and directed by amateur filmmaker Fred Platell, My Hat is a light-hearted rom-com made by members of the Sutton and District Cine Society. The film features some impresive props for an amateur short, including one listed in the credits as 'Lady Jane Uvadyer Grey', a reference to the handsome 1920s Morris Cowley Bullnose convertible. Alongside what is premuambly a note from it's generous owner: Four gallons oil, and please check the petrol.
