David, that wild and crazy revivification guy, gets us started with three monster photos:

Joe prepared some new scans:

Dave felt that two Liz's are better than one, so...here she iz's!

We end with a sparkling shot of Mickey Rooney getting ready for his Carmen Miranda impersonation in Babes on Broadway (1942), with an on-the-set visit from the original Chica Chica Boom Chic girl.

The Doctor canceled bunionectomy surgery so he could finish another scan (the patient, by the way, was hopping mad).  Anyway, here's Hedy Lamarr.

Joe ferried over some new photos from the movies:

We've completed the set of photos from House of Dracula (1945), with a lovely image of Martha O'Driscoll, courtesy of John.  He added a bonus shot of Ida Lupino and Jean Gabin in Moontide (1942).

Gary arrived with three pictures of Cary Grant in Only Angels Have Wings (1939).

Sylvie returns with three new desktop wallpapers, featuring Mary Astor, Brigitte Bardot, and Marlene Dietrich.

Chris finishes things off with a shot of Anita Page, and one of demure, unassuming Mamie Van Doren in Girls Town (1959).

Corrections/attributions for existing photos:

Let's resume with another Our Gang photo.  It's from The First Seven Years (1929)—one of the series' first talkies—and it features Jackie Cooper and Donald "Speck" Haines dueling over the affections of Mary Ann Jackson. This scan took five hours to clean.

Joe sent us a regal photo of Greta Garbo in Queen Christina (1933).  This is for Ricardo!

Frances has two new photos:

Danik dropped off a new scan of Ida Lupino and Willard Robertson in Deep Valley (1947).

Next, Dave returned from Cuernavaca just in time to plop this picture of Joan Collins on our desk.

We begin with a photo of artsy Jean Harlow in Platinum Blonde (1931).  I mustered up the strength for a bonus shot of her too.  These are for Michel.

Joe sent us two new photos:

Here's a shot of Maureen O'Hara in The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1939).

Sever steps up to the plate and hits a homerun with Luise Rainer and Spencer Tracy in Big City (1937).

Next, Danik has another nice image of Ida Lupino, in a scene from Beware, My Lovely (1952), with Robert Ryan.

EM joins the party with another interesting John Payne picture—this time with Sonja Henie in Sun Valley Serenade (1941).

Here are three nice scans of Greta Garbo, courtesy of Gary, including one from The Kiss (1929), one from The Temptress (1926), and a posed shot.  These are for Ricardo!

Let's end with a fascinating behind-the-scenes tableau from Chris.  It's the cast and crew from Beyond the Rocks (1922), with Gloria Swanson and Rudolph Valentino.  This beautiful photo has several notable features:  1) Valentino applying his own make-up; 2) a bored Swanson looking directly into the camera as if to urge us to get the action started again; 3) the violinist playing mood music (practicing, most likely, since the camera isn't rolling); 4) the young actor standing fourth from the right who we couldn't find anywhere in the film; 5) the ghost-like man below Valentino's feet who must have moved as the photo was being taken; 6) the director, co-star, and cameramen looking on; and 7) finally, that wonderful coat flung over the tree branches after the cameraman got too warm!  Also check out the glorious sepia version.
