Chief,

 

Major SWOON!!!

 

How could Grace Kingsley not thing Doug was handsome? She must have needed glasses or something.

 

According to Jeffrey Vance, the author of the bio on Doug, there was a sign atop the lot that said Bagdad to try and keep other filmmakers from trying to steal shots of his backlot "Arabian Night" sets.

While Googleing for "Pickford-Fairbanks Studios", I found this, which has an amazing amount of rare old photos of early Los Angeles. Go both forward and backward in the page list to see a lot more photos:

If the photos are slow to download, you can right-click on them and get their url address, then close the window and open a new one and paste the url address in the address box for a quick download of individual photos.

FredC,

 

Thanks for the link! I'll be looking at the link for sure!

 

It's surprising how much historical Los Angeles has been lost but there are still some pockets still left!

Chief,

 

I think in the years between *Cameo Kirby* and *Only Angels Have Wings*, Jean Arthur got a major make-over by the studio make-up artists.

_Director Wallace Worsley on the Set of Universal's "The Hunchback Of Notre Dame" (1923)_

/>

In this intriguing behind-the-scenes still, director Wallace Worsley and an unidentified cameraman (perhaps cinematographer Robert Newhard), with the famous Notre Dame cathedral set in the background, pose with a then state-of-the-art amplification device that allowed Worsley to communicate his instructions to the entire crowd of more than 2,500 actors and extras on the set of this landmark film.

Heck, "Cameo Kirby" came six years before "The Saturday Night Kid," the earliest movie I know by Jean Arthur (she and another Jean -- Harlow -- played supporting roles in that Clara Bow vehicle).
