A Question for Noir heads, any one recall any Film Noirs that featured gangsters or anybody for that matter in Zoot Suits. This style of clothing was popularized by Mexican-Americans, African Americans, and Italian Americans during the late 1930s and early 1940s.
I can't think of a single period film that displayed that style of clothing.
I CAN remember "The Zoot Cat" a 1944 one-reel animated cartoon, and possibly Tex Avery's "Wolfie" character in "Red Hot Riding Hood" may have worn a Zoot Suit. There may have been musicals that featured them but I don't watch many musicals, and I believe there was a film in 1981 called Zoot Suit.
More recent depictions:
Who Framed Rodger Rabbit had the Toon patrol in zoot suits & Jim Carey in The Mask wears one.
