Parlor, Bedroom
and Bath

Today we present our final picture of Ava Gardner, in a grainy cheesecake shot down by the sea.  Still, an interesting image of this popular siren!

We also have a film clip of Rudolph Valentino from his 1922 film Blood and Sand.  In this scene, Juan Gallardo (Valentino) begins an ill-fated dalliance with Doña Sol (Nita Naldi), who has congratulated his successful outcome in a bullfight by throwing him a handkerchief from the stands with her ring in it.  Gallardo's lonely young wife, Carmen (Lila Lee), waits for him forlornly at home.

April 11, 2005

Cabin in
 the Sky

A film clip today―from Harold Lloyd's wonderful movie, The Kid Brother, with Jobyna Ralston.  Viewing this snippet, we're convinced the photo on our site was taken right during filming, rather than being a posed shot.  The still photographer must have captured this moment live―resulting in a tender, yet funny, vignette.

April 10, 2005

The Kid Brother

Enjoy our final picture of Clark Gable.

We also have three new pictures from Guest Contributors:  Marlene Dietrich, Madge Evans, and Lois Moran (sent in as a Hurrell scan by Jane―thank you!).

April 4, 2005

Character actor/comedian Billy Gilbert weighs in today, in a scan from his film 3 of a Kind.  Gilbert (on right) is pictured with Shemp Howard.  The original photo had massive abrasions, scratches, pockmarks and other damage; the underlying picture was so good, however, we just had to make the effort.

Sylvie has also sent us a postcard scan of Harold Lloyd.  It's featured in The Annex.

April 3, 2005

Here's a new face:  Burgess Meredith in a picture from his film Street of Chance.  Bet you can read the words on the matchbook he's holding―but stand on your head!




April 2, 2005

We'll begin April with one of the biggest stars ever:  Marilyn Monroe, requested by Aldo.  In these two relatively early shots from Love Happy with The Marx Brothers, we begin to see her transition from ingénue to seductive starlet.  We plan to add more scans of her in the future.
