Zig, like you, pox on the watermarks. Like dogs and fenceposts - that's the Trib's lasting "contribution". Sure glad they don't run The Louvre.

Most beautiful-! I'm glad you posted this photo. After my comment in THE LETTER thread, I was afraid you'd be posting something else... a face-down body, for example... that might look like mine.

Ollie, I hear ya! These are clearly rare photos that we may never get the chance to see "clearly" they seem to be selling tens of thousands of rare photos on e bay ....I guess with the hope of floating their papers for a few more months/years.....

 

 

Anyway, some pretty racy images of Gloria Stuart in her Universal days....

WOW, is that really Molly Picon? Knowing her only from her 60's guest appearances on TV , I was shocked. She was a "looker" in 1934 ...as Joe E. Brown would say ....ZOWIEEEEEE!!

Thanks Ziggy. I appreciate what you've done too. Those Lombard pictures are spectacular.

 

I have an higher-resolution version of one of the Joan Blondell pics you posted and another higher resolution picture from the same photo session.

 

Joan Blondell - 1930's posing next to strange art-deco structure.

Wow, love them Revgen! So hard to find new Joan Blondell photos on the web...

A few early Joan Crawford images I found...wonder if she was "stained' that dark, or was in the sun too long?

Yep. It's not just her skin. Her pupils too. They look real bright. It may be the camera and lighting setup.

 

 

Here's Wheeler and Woolsey impressing the chorus girls on the set of *Hips Hips Hooray (1934)*.
