I definitely liked the Returns cowl better.

The reason the 89 cowl was so large is that they never got a proper head cast from Keaton...since he was claustrophobic the cast was taken in halves...they did one half of his face, then the other, it was also done in a rush ...they poured both positive halves and corrected the details resulting in the proportions being slightly off...the Returns cowl was sculpted on a printed scan of Keaton's head (which was fairly new technology at the time)....this is why the Returns cowl fits a bit more accurately because the dimensions were correct thus resulting in a better fit( especially along the law line )

interesting fact. i had never heard that they never got a proper head cast from Keaton. Pressed for time I guess!
