    I discovered something interesting when reading Roger Ebert's Toronto Film Festival article for today:

    "And by the way: Does Eminem [who wears caps] or anyone else know who started the ubiquitous modern custom of wearing baseball caps while not playing baseball?

    It was Norman Jewison who discovered in the late 1950s that the caps kept the sun out of his eyes while he was lining up outdoor shots. Other directors and cinematographers followed, actors copied them, and a fashion fad was born. Fact."
