Name That List, #19

What is this a list of? The answer is below in extended.
  • A lamp shade, quite gaudy
  • One rubber band
  • Two artificial flowers
  • One chain off a bathtub plug
  • One shoe lace

Answer: They're the things that Marion McKenzie, former New York show girl, wore on her head as she walked down Hollywood boulevard (January 1938), hoping to see if anyone would pay attention. Except for one truck driver, they didn't.
