Rikke forwarded this nice scan of Mrs. Robert Stack:  1950's actress Rosemarie Bowe.

Ronald Colman and Muriel Angelus are shown in The Light That Failed (1939).

Marguerite Chapman graces our pages again, courtesy of Rikke.  We added a bonus shot of beautiful, but tragic, 1950's actress Susan Cabot from her 1950 film On the Isle of Samoa.

This western photo of Ellen Drew and John Howard is for my two favorite cowgirls.  They're used to hearing that the Texas Rangers have won again, but this picture is from Texas Rangers Ride Again (1940).

Let's top off today's offerings with a striking scan of Blonde Bombshell Jean Harlow.  This one is for Michel!

Here are two peachy scans restored by Sarah and Michelle:

W.C. Fields contemplates his next move in The Bank Dick (1940), courtesy of Gary.

We have three photos of the popular Our Gang kids:

  • Will Santa bring Spanky and Scotty that perfect Christmas gift this year?

  • Spanky, Alfalfa, Porky, Buckwheat and Harold Switzer (Alfalfa's real-life brother) appear in a posed shot

Rikke dropped off a fine shot of Joan Collins in Land of the Pharaohs (1955).  And here's a bonus photo of Senta Berger.

Randolph Scott and Verna Hillie have a rocky relationship, but they're working through it, in Man of the Forest (1933).

Next, Marilyn Monroe undergoes a wardrobe check for Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953).

Feeling boxed in?  Tell Spencer Tracy all about it—he'll understand.  This image is courtesy of Gary, and was photographed by Irving Penn for Vogue Magazine.  (Thanks to Gilles for this information.)

May 8, 2012

Here are Lex Barker and Brenda Joyce in Tarzan's Magic Fountain (1949).  Although IMDB says Brenda was originally from Missouri, judging by this photo she may have come from Alabama with a Band-aid on her knee.

Eddie Cantor and Judith Anderson cavort in two images from Forty Little Mothers (1940).

Next up, cowboy star Ray "Crash" Corrigan in Gunsmoke Ranch (1937), with Jean Carmen, and Wild Horse Rodeo (1937).
