September 2005 Updates

Oct. 2005

Here's a picture of Betty Hutton and Eddie Bracken from The Miracle of Morgan's Creek.  We also have a film clip and movie summary.  In this scene, Betty and Eddie are attempting to get married under false pretenses, and the wily justice of the peace finally figures it out.

We also have a nice scan of Gary Cooper and Marlene Dietrich in The Annex.  The photo is from the film Morocco.  Thanks, Alberto!

Miracle of
Morg. Creek

Jane sent us some neato color pictures of Marilyn Monroe for The Annex.  Thanks for these great shots, taken by photographer André de Dienes at Malibu Beach in 1946.

September 29, 2005

One last group of scans for The Annex from CJ―this time it's Audrey Hepburn.

And check out the interesting Joan Crawford picture, sent in by Mike for The Annex.

September 28, 2005


CJ strikes again!  Here are more pictures in The Annex Marlene Dietrich, Greta Garbo, Katharine Hepburn, and Marilyn Monroe.

September 27, 2005

Here's a nice picture of Audrey Hepburn from Breakfast at Tiffany's, submitted for The Annex by Jane.  Thank you!

Also enjoy this film clip of Boris Karloff in The Mummy.  It's the wonderful hokum at the end of the movie with Boris interrupted as he's about to dispatch beautiful Zita Johann!  As Jimmy Durante might have said, "I've been dis-in-tragrated!"

Finally, we have a lovely picture of Lillian Russell in The Annex, thanks again to Jane!

September 26, 2005

The Mummy

Check out our new pictures in The Annex, sent in by CJ.  These images were gleaned from the Internet and are in the public domain.  We've got Greta Garbo (squeezing John Barrymore), Boris Karloff, Laurel & Hardy, Our Gang and Rudolph Valentino.  Thanks, CJ!

September 25, 2005

We have the first of three pictures of stalwart sidekick, Nigel Bruce―Dr. John Watson to Basil Rathbone's Sherlock Holmes.  We begin with an interesting stylized shot of the two men.

After we conclude this series, we'll have―what else?―some Basil Rathbone scans.  Elementary.  Grab your magnifying glass!

September 24, 2005

A final Humphrey Bogart scan today.

We also received a beautiful picture of Ann Sothern by for The Annex, prepared and contributed by Jane.  Thanks!  The photographer was George Hurrell, for the film Brother Orchid (1940).  We've also added a movie summary and a film clip.

Not to be outdone, Alberto sent in this photo of Carole Lombard.

September 23, 2005


Here's a young Humphrey Bogart as a safecracker.  Does anyone know if this still is from one of his films?  Or is it just a publicity shot?

September 22, 2005

Enjoy this film clip of Greta Garbo in The Painted Veil.  In this scene, a married Greta steps out to an exotic nightclub show with another man (George Brent).  Okay, why are they the only audience members who are standing?  For dramatic effect, that's why!  Sheesh.

September 21, 2005

The Painted Veil

Another new face today:  Marie "The Body" McDonald.  This gorgeous actress had a disappointing career and, ultimately, a tragic end.  Don't worry―we'll be more upbeat soon!

September 20, 2005

We've got popular silent star Mabel Normand today.  She worked closely with Fatty Arbuckle and Mack Sennett, and had a tragic, early end.  This picture is from her film Molly O', for which we have a movie summary.

September 19, 2005

Newcomer Betty Field arrives today.  This little known actress is best known for her work in King's Row, playing Cassie Tower.

September 18, 2005

Today we have a final picture of popular Claudette Colbert.

September 17, 2005

How about a film clip of Hedy Lamarr in Lady of the Tropics?  In this scene, she and Robert Taylor spoon on the river.

September 16, 2005

Lady of
the Tropics

Here's Claudette Colbert in a stylish pose.

We also have a film clip of her in Cleopatra; enjoy this extended scene with Warren William in high camp!  The clip doesn't really bear any relation to the two stills we have from this movie―Ms. Colbert isn't in this particular costume anywhere, so they must have been publicity shots.

September 15, 2005


Here's another shot of Claudette Colbert.

September 14, 2005

More of sweet Claudette Colbert today.  This picture, from The Sign of the Cross, is for Dave―with three more of her to come in the next few days.  (I'm not sure what's up with the striations in the top half of the mirror in this image.  That's what was in the photo.)

September 12, 2005

We have a film clip from A Star is Born.  Here, Fredric March arrives at a dinner party, greets his current squeeze, Elizabeth Jenns, and repairs to the bar to drown his sorrows.  Also in the scene are dapper Adolphe Menjou and bartender Billy Coe.

September 11, 2005

A Star
is Born

Here's Norma Shearer in an action pose.  The cat's pajamas―but stylish!

And our final picture of this enduring actress.

September 10, 2005

More Norma Shearer.  The wheels of progress turn slowly...this little baby was tough.

September 9, 2005

A new face today:  Norma Shearer.  This and three upcoming scans of the popular 1920's and 30's actress are for Sylvie and Dave.

September 6, 2005

Sylvie has sent us a new desktop wallpaper of Anna May Wong.  Thanks, Sylvie!

We also add another Marx Brothers film clip―this time from Horse Feathers.  Notice in our still that Chico has a football in hand after he and Groucho have raced over to confront David Landau.  In the movie, though, Chico throws the football away just as they arrive.

Finally, check out the unique picture of Marilyn Monroe in The Annex.  She's dancing with (gulp!) Truman Capote, sent in by Aldo.  Yowsa!
