July 2004 Updates

Aug. 2004

We end the month with another Theda Bara picture, from her movie Cleopatra.  This is a rather haunting image, to say the least.  And the quality of this very old photo was surprisingly good, with great detail (such as the hair on his arm).

July 31, 2004

After some lousy computer problems earlier this week, we're finally back up.  We resume with our first picture of John Wayne.  Expect a few more early shots of this rugged Hollywood legend.

July 28, 2004

Added a picture of Betty Grable from The Dolly Sisters.

July 25, 2004

Theda Bara returns.  This picture is from her 1917 offering of Cleopatra―well before Liz and Dick romped along the banks of the Nile.

And another film clip debuts:  a scene from Two Tars, starring Laurel and Hardy from 1928.

Finally, we offer a picture of Charlie Chaplin from A Dog's Life.

July 21, 2004

We've finished the last (for now) Alice White picture.  More to come for this relatively unknown actress, if we can locate more photos of her.

Also look for the Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. picture from The Mark of Zorro.  The bottom part of the photo fades somewhat, but it's still an interesting tableau.

Finally, we close out Tuesday with a new Marx Brothers scan, from A Day at the Races.  This is the first of 27 new pictures of Minnie's Boys, from their most popular movies―to be added over the next few weeks.  (The combined Marx Brothers zip file will be unavailable until all their pictures are complete.)

July 20, 2004

At Judy's request, we've added a new picture of a young Gary Cooper with  Clara Bow, from their movie Children of Divorce.    (The combined Clara Bow zip file will be unavailable until all her pictures are complete.)

Betty Grable also makes repeat appearance in a scene from Coney Island.

Added movie summaries for several Marx Brothers movies:  Animal Crackers, The Cocoanuts, Duck Soup, Horse Feathers and Monkey Business.

July 19, 2004

We added a second Vilma Banky picture.  It's difficult to find photos for this relatively forgotten star.  In this setting, she seems curiously disembodied―you be the judge.

July 18, 2004

Added a new picture of the Peek-a-Boo Girl, Veronica Lake, as well as a Charlie Chaplin film clip from A Night in the Show.

Created the John Wayne page.  Pictures to follow.

Inserted placeholders in various movie stars' pages for over 100 new pictures to be added in the coming weeks.

Added movie summaries for Coney Island, The Dolly Sisters, Sweet Rosie O'Grady, Tin Pan Alley, The Man Who Came to Dinner, Now, Voyager, Way Down East, Children of Divorce, Her Wedding Night, Hoop-la, Red Hair, Hula, A Dog's Life, Shoulder Arms, The Sisters, Captain Blood, The Charge of the Light Brigade, Dodge City, San Antonio, Santa Fe Trail and They Died With Their Boots On.

July 17, 2004

We've got two more Charlie Chaplin pictures―a classic tramp pose and a scene from The Gold Rush.

There are also two new photos of the Marx Brothers.  The first one is an early shot of the four brothers (including Zeppo).  Unfortunately, the photo is  a couple of generations old, and has numerous vertical striations and general graininess.  However, the appeal of all four brothers together in one picture outweighs these shortcomings, so we offer it for your interest.  (There was a fifth brother, Gummo, who didn't appear in the movies with the other Marxes.)

The second Marx Brothers photo depicts them in a playful tonsorial mood!

July 16, 2004

Added a new Fay Wray picture.

July 15, 2004

Completed the second and (for now) last Vivien Leigh picture.  This was a bear to do―thousands of scratches, pops/clicks and imperfections in the original photo.  The end result, however, is very satisfying.  We hope you'll agree.

We've also added a Charlie Chaplin film clip, from The Rink.

Finally, there's a new Anna May Wong picture―a pensive pose.

July 13, 2004

There's a new picture of Harpo Marx, the original Harmonicat!

We also have another Alice White picture, from The Big Noise.  Unfortunately, the original photo was very grainy.  It's a nice publicity still of her, but not as crisp as some.

July 12, 2004

Added two more pictures of Alice White, and one of Barbara Stanwyck from Lady of Burlesque.

We also have a film clip from Charlie Chaplin's landmark movie The Kid.

July 11, 2004

We've got another picture of Deanna Durbin today.

July 10, 2004

Added Vivien Leigh in costume from Gone With the Wind, as well as a first picture of 1920's flapper Alice White.

We also added a new film clip of Johnny Weissmuller in Tarzan the Ape Man.

July 9, 2004

The famous 1930's and 40's songbird, Deanna Durbin, makes her debut today―the first of two pictures.

We've also got a new film clip of Charlie Chaplin in A Night Out.

July 8, 2004

Our first two Carole Lombard pictures appear today.

We also moved the mummy picture from Boris Karloff's page to a new Lon Chaney, Jr. page, based on input from two visitors―thanks to David and Marcelo for catching this error.  It looks like the picture is from The Mummy's Ghost, for which a movie summary has been added.

Finally, we offer a film clip of Veronica Lake in This Gun for Hire.  Although she appears to be lip-synching her musical number, it's still a charming vignette.

July 7, 2004

Two Errol Flynn pictures arrive―both from Robin Hood.  More to come for this popular swashbuckler and romantic leading star.

We've also added another Rudolph Valentino picture from The Son of the Sheik.

July 6, 2004

Added a new Hedy Lamarr picture.  I solemnly promise to deliver many more photos of this beautiful actress!

We've also got a new film clip from the classic film Frankenstein (Shiver!).

July 5, 2004

Finished Boris Karloff's page (for now), with a large, in-your-face scan from (gulp!) Frankenstein.  With this one, you can really see all the detailed makeup that went into the monster's face.

Attributed the current Judy Garland scan to The Wizard of Oz.  Thanks to Sylvie's sharp eye on this one.  Also added the movie summary.

July 3, 2004

We start July off with a new film clip―from Dracula.
