And thus ALSO explaining why you never would again see her during WWII at the Douglas Aircraft Plant in Downey CA, but INSTEAD until the duration of the war would spend her off-hours away from the Paramount Studios playing her harmonica down on the pier at Santa Monica!

To get this one, it helps if you're a fan of the old Dr.Demento radio show....

Veronica Lake with her hair twisted in a drill press, demonstrating potential dangers to women in factories during WWII (1943).

This is the film Welles made when he was served with a huge tax lien by the IRS and had his agent make it known that he would appear in any film for an immediate $50K.

Can't fool you, can I, clore.

P.S. Take a look at the "Cagney as Robin Hood" thread in the Films and Filmmakers forum.

You're joking, right Tom? That's James Cagney as Lon Chaney from MAN OF A THOUSAND FACES.

Two screen legends, James Stewart and Orson Welles on a Universal back lot in 1957, with some fat little clown between them (anyone known the name of the clown?)

In '56 Reagan would have been 45 yrs old, too old to be posing in underwear.



He wasn't exactly a 'Calvin Klein' model ! :|

Nope, I'm pretty sure that that's not Ronald Reagan in that underwear ad down there.

AND, I'm ALSO pretty sure that that's not George Armstrong Custer in that Arrow Shirt ad down there EITHER!!!

(...sorry...just couldn't resist doin' that old "Custer/Arrow Shirt" joke here, THAT'S all!) ;)

Doesn't look like it to me. He never had a waist that small; he was a beefy guy. And the nostrils are too flared for Ron.

Trog and Joan reminded me of a still from an earlier movie that also featured an actor made up as an, er, primate.

Wow ! What an interesting eye-popping photo!

I would have loved seeing that race! :) B-) Probably more interesting then the America's Cup race.

It amazes me how you recognized the Sacramento River!

Here is a very large and interesting photo showing 8 old steamboats in the movie STEAMBOAT ROUND THE BEND, an excellent 1935 Will Rogers film. This photo looks like it was taken with an 8x10 still camera which used large sheet film.

I wonder if this is the largest number of old steamboats assembled for a race in any Hollywood movie?

I think the location is the Sacramento River in north central California.

Say buddy, will you stake a fellow American to a meal?
