The measurement from bottom of the the Petersham ribbon to the top of the crown, more often than not, is not as high as that of Ford's chin to brow 'height'. But this seems to me to depend on how deeply the bash extends down in to the top of the head. And again, depending on how far back in the head the bash has been extended, the hat can seem either slghtly slimmer than the width of Ford's face or just as wide.
Yes, but don't forget about the camera angle. The crown height "changes" optically depending on the position of the head, i.e. it's smaller when HF looks up and bigger when he looks straight into the camera. And the best scene to see the face-to-crown ratio is the "Truck?... What truck?" scene when you can see the profile.
Hope my point is more or less clear,
