June 2005 Updates

Jul. 2005

Splish, splash!  Today we have another picture of effervescent Betty Hutton.

June 30, 2005

Here's a rarity:  a wonderful photo of beautiful silent film actress Mary Miles Minter.  It's in The Annex, and was sent to us by the indefatigable Mark.  Thanks so much!

June 29, 2005


One more Betty Hutton scan goes up today.

We also have two film clips of Betty Hutton in The Perils of Pauline.  She's romancing John Lund in the first clip.  In the second one, she's the victim of several dastardly deeds!

June 28, 2005

John Lund


Lana Turner returns!  Here are two great pictures of her, provided by Mike, in The Annex.

And enjoy two film clips of Betty Hutton in Annie Get Your Gun.  In the first, Annie hits the big time and finds love; in the second, she says goodbye to the kids and boards the ship with Louis Calhern.

June 27, 2005

No Business

Here's our second, and last, Janet Gaynor scan.

We've got several more Betty Hutton photos too, including one from Happy Go Lucky (for which there's a movie summary).  We also added three short musical film clips of her at her best.

June 26, 2005

A special treat today:  several new photos showcasing the vivacious and irrepressible Betty Hutton.  These images were provided by Michael H. Mayer and Ms. Hutton, and represent many of her most successful films.  As the top female box office draw for Paramount in the 1940's and 1950's, her acting legacy endures.  We are very grateful to her for these beautiful pictures―we hope you enjoy them!

We also added several movie summaries, including Annie Get Your Gun, The Greatest Show on Earth, Here Come the Waves, Incendiary Blonde, Let's Dance, The Perils of Pauline, Somebody Loves Me, and Spring Reunion.

Lovely Janet Gaynor debuts.

June 24, 2005

One final David Niven picture today―our final scan for him.

June 23, 2005

David Niven drops in today.  This popular, urbane star had several memorable films over a long career.

June 22, 2005

Awright, ya mug...put 'em up!  Here's Edward G. Robinson in a glorious scan from Little Caesar.  Pictured with him is veteran character actor George E. Stone.

We also have a film clip of this scene for your enjoyment.  Besides George E. Stone, we see Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Glenda Farrell.

June 21, 2005


Enjoy this new film clip of Freddie Bartholomew from Captains Courageous.  He's holding his own with some Hollywood heavyweights in this scene, including Spencer Tracy, Lionel Barrymore and Mickey Rooney.  Unfortunately, he ends up in the hold with the fish.

June 20, 2005

Captains Courageous

We have a picture of another little-known actress, Hope Hampton, in The Annex.  Thanks, Mark!

June 19, 2005

Our second and final Pola Negri scan surfaces today.  An added bonus:  Mark was kind enough to send along another picture of her for The Annex.

Here's a smart film clip of Bette Davis, Monty Woolley and Reginald Gardiner from The Man Who Came to Dinner.  The dialog bristles with staccato delivery by Woolley and Gardiner, and Davis holds her own too.

June 18, 2005

The Man
 Who Came
 to Dinner

A new face today:  silent heartthrob Pola Negri.  This is the first of two scans.

Also check out a film clip of James Cagney from 1934's Jimmy the Gent.  The clip includes Allen Jenkins and a young Joe Sawyer.

We also corrected the actress's name pictured with Fredric March in A Star is Born, in our scan of June 7th.  He's shown with Elizabeth Jenns―not Janet Gaynor.  Thanks to Steve for catching this error and pointing us in the right direction!

June 17, 2005

Jimmy the Gent

We've added a new film clip of Leslie Howard from The Petrified Forest.  Enjoy this extended scene with Bette Davis and (briefly) Charley Grapewin.

June 14, 2005

The Petrified Forest

Another new face today:  popular 1930's star Robert Montgomery.

June 13, 2005

We offer another picture of Lon Chaney, Sr.  This one is from West of Zanzibar and is our last in his series.

June 12, 2005

Sylvie strikes again!  Check out her latest desktop wallpaper―this time Katharine Hepburn is the subject.

June 11, 2005

Here's our final Fredric March scan.  This eerie image of him is also from Death Takes a Holiday.




June 10, 2005

Here's our second Fredric March picture.  It's from Death Takes a Holiday with Evelyn Venable.

We also have a film clip of this scene―well, sort of.  The two of them are spooning, but he's dressed in a dark evening jacket!  Don't be alarmed if the first several seconds of the clip are upside down―they were shot as a reflection in a pool.


June 9, 2005

Death Takes
a Holiday

We begin a three-picture series of Fredric March.  Our first scan shows him in A Star is Born with Elizabeth Jenns.




June 7, 2005

Well, since we've been featuring some Betty Furness and Wynne Gibson items lately, Mark decided to join the fray with some of his own scans of these two relatively unknown actresses.  Thanks, Mark, for these great scans for The Annex!

June 6, 2005


Another Laurel & Hardy scan today, from Towed in a Hole.

June 5, 2005


Guest contributor Mark has sent us a neat old photo of Marie Prevost for The Annex.




June 4, 2005

Here's our third Katharine Hepburn picture.

And fire up the projector!  We've got a film clip from Mata Hari.  In this scene, Lionel Barrymore is panting to see exotic Greta Garbo again.

We also attributed our Corinne Griffith photo to The Lady in Ermine.  A movie summary has been added.

June 3, 2005

Mata Hari

Katharine Hepburn bows in today―the first two scans in a three-picture series for Sylvie.




June 2, 2005

Back in the saddle again!  Here's a second scan of William Farnum from The Adventurer.  This time, someone thoughtfully shook their fountain pen over the photo, leaving lots of ink tracks.  Why couldn't they have moved the picture aside beforehand?  Anyway, here it is―sans ink and scratches!

We also have a film clip of Laurel and Hardy sleuthing up a storm in Do Detectives Think? [Note:  video removed 12/3/2006]

Finally, we expanded the movie summary for Why Change Your Wife?.
