The story also went that Grant was whacked out on legally prescribed LSD during that visit.

 

Well, THAT'S certainly no way to treat your precious bodily fluids, now is it Lawrence?!

Pearl White (star of The Perils of Pauline) shooting the serial The House of Hate on the New Jersey Palisades, with cameraman Arthur Miller, director George Seitz, and leading man Antonio Moreno, 1917

Supposedly Pearl White never visited California (she filmed in the East and soon retired to Paris). Answer to a trivia question? "Biggest American movie star never to set foot in Hollywood?"

President Kennedy and his young family.

 

 

 

Hey, what happened?

Yes, someone photoshopped the picture.  Don't believe everything you see.  Here is the actual cover from that date.

Here is a real picture.

 

So, in essence Miles, what we have here in the TOP photo is an example of, ahem, "the wrong stuff", but in the BOTTOM photo we have...

 

(...I don't think I need to finish this here, now do I?!) ;)

I'll bet you didn't know that even Lassie had stand-ins.

 

tommyrettig_lassie_standins.jpg?w=604&h=

 

Lassie (center), famed movie dog who is now deserting the screen to appear in a television series, is in Hollywood with four of his offspring on Nov. 24, 1953, all of whom double and stand-in for him, and with 10-year-old Tommy Rettig, who’ll also star in the series. Lassie (who’s all male) is now 12 years old. His kid stand-ins are named Laddie, Young Laddie, Old Laddie and Young Pal. Laddie is a running specialist; Young Laddie, who weighs 65 pounds compared to Lassie’s 85, jumps off buildings into a blanket; Old Laddie is good for fight scenes because he can slash with his strong teeth without injuring a human and Young Pal does mostly swim scenes. Markings on all the dogs are identical.” (AP Photo/Don Brinn)

A few days ago, Doc Kimble posted a photo taken at the White House.  This was the first stop of The Hollywood Victory Caravan.  it was taken on April 30, 1942.  A large band of Hollywood stars were organized to tour the country by train and put on shows in more than a dozen cities over a three week period.  All proceeds went to the Army and Navy Relief Funds.  First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt hosted a tea for the stars that first day.  If you had trouble identifying the stars, here is what I have found.

 

Hollywood-Victory-Caravan.jpg

The Hollywood Victory Caravan was a 3-week railroad journey of 1942 that brought performers across the US to raise money for war bonds. This photo was taken on April 30, 1942 at the White House on White House lawn with Hollywood Victory Caravan entertainers (seated, from left) Oliver Hardy, Joan Blondell, Charlotte Greenwood, Charles Boyer, Rise Stevens, Desi Arnaz, Frank McHugh, Matt Brooks (writer), James Cagney, Pat O’Brien, Juanita Stark, Alma Carroll; (standing, from left) Merle Oberon, Eleanor Powell, Arlene Whelan, Marie McDonald, Fay McKenzie, Katharine Booth, Mrs. Roosevelt, Frances Gifford, Frances Langford, Elyse Knox, Cary Grant, Claudette Colbert, Bob Hope, Ray Middleton, Joan Bennett, Bert Lahr, Mark Sandrich (director), Jack Rose (writer), Stan Laurel, Jerry Colonna, and Groucho Marx.

 

Bob Hope and Cary Grant served as emcees for the shows.  Not all of the stars could make the entire trip, but most did.  Bing Crosby and Olivia DeHavilland joined the tour a few days after it started.  After returning to Los Angeles, some of the stars made one last trip, to San Francisco, for a show on May 19th.  The tour played to packed houses in big arenas and made about $800,000 in 1942 dollars for the Relief Funds of the Army and Navy.

Posting some of O. Winston Link's photos in Off Topics, since this is related to movie history, it's better suited here.

 

Drive in at Iaeger, West Virginia, date August 2, 1956.  The movie is "Battle Taxi" (1955) on the screen.

Natalie -- WB's last major film star under long-term contract
 
By this time Flynn had died. Rock Hudson was at Universal, and Hayward was not under contract to Warners. Aside from Wood these people were almost all from the many Warners TV programs of the time.


Oh... Well I tried.
