January 2010 Updates

February 2010


Sorry for the site's unavailability earlier this week.  My web hosting service yanked us when they determined that we were using too much horsepower on the shared server—other sites on the server were running slow.  They've temporarily put us on a new shared server.  I'll most likely have to move the site to a dedicated server ($$Ouch$$) in the next several days.  The good news is that we won't be competing with any other sites for computing power...the bad news is (gulp) I have no idea how to run a dedicated server.  In the meantime, I'm going to freeze the site content (no updates) until I'm on the new server.

The Doctor worked hard on this scan of Ann Savage, from Scared Stiff (1945).

Enjoy a lighter-than-air shot of Charlie Chaplin in The Great Dictator (1941), courtesy of Alberto.

Marguerite Chapman joins the party, in this photo from Vladimir.

Elisabeth scanned some great pictures:

Check out Carrie's new site:  rediscovering anita louise.  You'll find photos, a filmography, and interesting articles about Anita Louise.

Gary selected a few new images from his treasure trove:

Enjoy these new scans from Chris:

The Little Rascals are back at it.  Here's a still from their 1934 Our Gang film For Pete's Sake, featuring Jacqueline Taylor, Wally Albright, Matthew "Stymie" Beard, Tommy Bond, and cutie pie Marianne Edwards as the maligned party.

Joe discovered this nice shot of Olivia de Havilland from Gone With the Wind (1939).

Corrections/attributions for existing pictures
Sarah identified a picture of Ruth Hussey from Free and Easy (1941)—not to be confused with the 1930 outing starring Buster Keaton.  (For you purists, here's a scan of Buster from the 1930 film, courtesy of Chris, with Anita Page and that over-saxed interloper, Wallace Beery.)

Speaking of Sarah, she applied her creative talent to sketches of four superstar actresses:  Ingrid Bergman, Greta Garbo, Rita Hayworth, and Norma Shearer.

Andreas returns with a fine image of Charles Laughton in Tales of Manhattan (1942).

Chris finishes things off nicely with a picture of Loretta Young in Eternally Yours (1939).

We welcome a new contributor today, Andreas, who has sent us some very fine scans:

Thinking ahead to summer, here are some beach lovelies:  Mack Sennett Bathing Beauties, courtesy of Chris.

Gary sent us a satchel with three Robert Mitchum photos from His Kind of Woman (1951), with Raymond Burr and Tim Holt.

We added 90 episodes of the 21st Precinct radio program, which starred Everett Sloane in a role similar to that of Jack Webb in Dragnet.

Chris has a new shot of pugilist-wannabe Charlie Chaplin in City Lights (1931).

Enjoy these two shots of 1930's cutie-pie Toby Wing, prepared by Chris.

Gary returns with a plethora of great images from the movies:

We start off 2010 with a new listing of radio shows.  Since there are now over 500 full-length shows on the site, deployed across the various performers' gallery pages and movie summaries, we thought it would be helpful to include a list by radio program.  Just use the new top menu item "Radio Shows."  We have several thousand more shows to add.

Chris has two new photos of James Cagney in Angels With Dirty Faces (1938), with Humphrey Bogart and Ann Sheridan.  These are for Ben.

Alberto sent in a pip of a color photo of Deborah Kerr.

Chris returns with three scans of Rita Hayworth in classic poses from Gilda (1946).  These are for Davor.

Enjoy this unusual shot of Clara Bow clowning it up in Dangerous Curves (1929).

We end with a photo of Leila Hyams, and one of Rosemary Lane in Hollywood Hotel (1937).

Photo ID Patrol:  we have a pictures of two actresses who are misidentified, and we don't know who they really are.  Does anyone know the true identities of the ladies we're calling Peggy Dow and Betty White?  Thanks for any help you can provide!
