| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The umbrella has been an important accessory in the movies. Characters have used one to dance, fly, kill people and more. After a quick poll around the office to find co-workers' favorite movie/umbrella moments, here are a few noteworthy umbrellas, and I'll show you where to find ones just like them. (And click here for my column today on new umbrella fashion!)
