November 2004 Updates

Dec. 2004

We end November with a new Laurel & Hardy scan―a second one from Twice Two.

There's also a new Errol Flynn picture, from They Died With Their Boots On.

November 30, 2004

Well, we're back in the (upload) saddle again!  The ISP fixed its problems.

Today, we have a new film clip from Hedy Lamarr's movie,  The Heavenly Body.  In this wry scene, William Powell has just drunk a sleeping potion intended for Hedy, and he's beginning to feel its effects.

November 29, 2004

Sorry for the lack of updates the last few days.  Our ISP's upload service has had severe problems, making it next to impossible to publish new web pages or pictures.  Hopefully, they will have them fixed soon.  Thanks for your patience!

We did, however, finally manage (after 4 attempts) to add three new wallpapers from Sylvie today:  Mae Marsh, The Marx Brothers and Gloria Swanson.  Thanks, Sylvie!

November 28, 2004

Check out the new Laurel & Hardy picture, from their very funny Liberty.  This wonderful tableau is part of the famous extended pants-changing sequence where, in desperation, Stan and Ollie try to get their own pants back on, in a vacant taxi.  As two new passengers prepare to enter the cab, they surprise the embarrassed boys, who exit quickly.  The lady is a very young Jean Harlow.  Also, don't miss the cabbie's face and bright eyes at the far right of the picture!

Happy Thanksgiving to all.

November 25, 2004

We offer a fourth and final Marx Brothers picture from The Cocoanuts.  Next, on to Duck Soup.

November 24, 2004

There are two new desktop wallpapers from Sylvie:  Charlie Chaplin and Joan Bennett.  Thanks, Sylvie!

We also continue our foray into Marx Brothers country with another picture from The Cocoanuts.

There is also a new movie summary for Laurel & Hardy's film Liberty.

Finally, welcome Maggie and Dan!  I hope you enjoy the website.

November 23, 2004

Attributed a John Wayne picture to his early film The Big Trail.  Thanks to Jeroen's sharp eye on this one!  Added a movie summary as well.

November 22, 2004

We've added more Bebe Daniels links.

November 21, 2004

Here's one more picture of Errol Flynn, shooting 'em up in San Antonio.

November 20, 2004

Two new Laurel & Hardy pictures arrive, from Their First Mistake and Twice Two (yes, that's Stanley in drag!).

We also have a super-size scan of Errol Flynn, from Santa Fe Trail.  Please note that this is a very large file.

November 19, 2004

Today, we add two new Charlie Chaplin pictures:  from The Gold Rush and Shoulder Arms.  These two scans complete our Chaplin section―at least for now.

November 18, 2004

We've got a new Marx Brothers picture from The Cocoanuts.

November 17, 2004

We offer a final Bette Davis picture―the fifteenth in our series for this beautiful, dynamic actress.

November 16, 2004

Start your week off right with two Bette Davis pictures:  one, an early pose against a wrought iron background, and the other sitting pensively.

November 15, 2004

For Sunday, we have Errol Flynn in a large group picture from the close of The Adventures of Robin Hood.  He is accompanied by the lovely and virtuous Olivia de Havilland.

November 14, 2004

More Laurel & Hardy.  This time, the picture is from Sons of the Desert.

November 13, 2004

Another Laurel & Hardy scan debuts today, from The Private Life of Oliver the Eighth.

November 12, 2004

There is a new Marx Brothers picture from The Cocoanuts.  We'll eventually have four scans from this, their first sound film.

November 10, 2004

I was so tired from the last scan, it took a couple days to do another one.  Here we have John Wayne pictured in an early movie (I'm not sure which one, or who the girl is).  This is our last picture of The Duke for now.

Now, a special treat, requested by a Lon Chaney fan from Brazil:  a scene of the great actor in London After Midnight (a film presumed to be lost).  Thanks to Jack Theakston for a great action photo!  We also added a summary for this film.

November 9, 2004

Another new Bette Davis picture arrives (close-up portrait).  In deciding whether to buy this photo, I noticed that some thoughtful soul long ago managed to spill a soft drink on it.  There were splashes, bubbles and stains all over the picture.  But there was a stunning Bette Davis beneath all of it, so I decided to have a go at cleaning it up.  Guess which stains were hardest to remove:  The face?  No.  The hair?  Well, that was tough, but no.  The most difficult ones, by far, were between the polka dots in the dress.  I have a new appreciation for dry cleaners!

Anyway, I hope you feel the final product is worth the effort.

November 7, 2004

We have a new Bette Davis picture (descending the stairs).

November 6, 2004

Today we add a neat film clip from The Secret Six, starring Wallace Beery.  Although the clip lasts just two and a half minutes, Beery is seen with, count 'em:  Clark Gable, Jean Harlow, Johnny Mack Brown, Lewis Stone and Murray Kinnell.  There was a lot of MGM firepower in this curious 1931 film.  Beery and Harlow never appeared together in the exact scene depicted in our photo―it must have been a publicity shot.  However, in the movie they are indeed shown wearing the clothes in our photo, but in entirely separate scenes.  And Harlow's character in the film was in love with Johnny Mack Brown―not Beery!  Oh, well...

Also check out the second Laurel & Hardy scan from Pack Up Your Troubles.

November 5, 2004

Another Laurel & Hardy scan arrives today.  This time the boys are shown in Pack Up Your Troubles.

November 4, 2004

A new Clara Bow scan appears today, from her film The Plastic Age.  She is also represented in an exotic, numinous pose here.  These two pictures wrap up our Clara Bow series for now.  We've once again placed a zip file on her page 1, with all 26 scans for your downloading convenience.

November 3, 2004

I love Clara Bow.  Here's a photo from her film Red Hair, released in 1928.

Another Clara Bow, this time in The Saturday Night Kid, in an interesting group photo (from left, Jean Arthur, Clara, Jean Harlow, Leone Lane).

And rounding out today's offerings, we've got a new film clip of Joan Blondell from Gold Diggers of 1933.

November 2, 2004

We kick off turkey month with one last Marx Brothers picture (our sixth) from At the Circus.  Here, they're forming a human pyramid.  From the look on Groucho's face, he doesn't like heights!  We'll be moving on to photos from The Cocoanuts next.

There's also a film clip from The Phantom of the Opera, starring Lon Chaney, Sr.  This is the famous unmasking scene―one of the most compelling and frightening ever filmed.

One last note:  we also (finally!) found a movie summary for Charley Chase's film Time Out for Trouble.
