    Hi Gagman . . .



    You have Great Posts here, Gagman . . . I've enjoyed everyone of them !



    I just Love Betty Compson in that Rich, Burgandy Gown in, 'To Have and To Hold' (1924).

    And those Lattice Windows are just Beautiful !



    And Claire Windsor appears 'Whimsical' . . . Reminds me almost of a Joker in a Deck of Cards.



    And the Photos of Colleen Moore and Clara Bow are so Endearing and Enriching

    in their own Special Whimsical Ways. They sure knew HOW to 'Frolic' for the Camera Lens.



    I Especially Love that Portrait of Clara Bow and the 'Door Man' in his RED Uniform.



    Is that the MOON by his Cap ? . . . AWESOME !



    Great Photos and Coloring Gagman.








    Hi Gagman & all . . .



    Hope all is well. Haven't really been on the 'Boards' lately . . . But it's good to visit back every once in awhile.



    Gagman, you're 'Janet Gaynor' posts are just Delightful ! . . . Especially alongside with Charles Farrell.

    They make such an Endearing couple.



    Unlike the Photo of Harry Langdon and Joan Crawford. The Only movie I've ever seen Harry Langdon in was with co-actor Oliver Hardy who plays a Doctor attending an ailing 'Elephant'. And Harry Langdon performed with much baffoonery, not unlike Oliver Hardy.



    So to see Harry Langdon in a somewhat 'affectionate' embrace with the 'No Nonsense' Joan Crawford, seems to go against the 'grain'. But that's 'HOLLYWOOD". But I shouldn't Judge until I've seen this movie, 'Tramp, Tramp, Tramp' (1926).



    And John Gilbert is looking Romantically 'Dapper' in his Russian Uniform, holding a lit cigarette and with his deep, dark eyes and his mustache.



    As Always, Awesome Posts, Gagman !





    Gagman . . .



    These Magazine Covers of 'Old' are just AWESOME . . .

    Such Life & Color in them . . .



    Lila Lee looks so Pixie-Like with her Large, Brown, 'Soulful' Eyes . . .

    And the attraction here is that the 'Primary' colors are represented

    in this Photo . . . RED, YELLOW & BLUE.



    And Leatrice Joy gives another 'striking' pose . . .

    her Beautiful Face Framed in a Flower . . . This seemed to be the

    popular pose @ that time... to have one's facial pose within a flower.

    I'm reminded of a Bar of Baby Soap that had a Picture of a Baby's Face

    on the inside of a 'budding' Flower.



    And Vilma Banky with 'Orange' hair, is only 'amplified' by those

    luscious, rich, oriental colors as a backdrop . . .



    All these faces are Just Rich in color with Glowing faces and Rosy cheeks.

    Not to mention the rich Highlights in their hair and the Colorful background.



    These magazines are just too Beautiful for Words.



    Thanks Gagman.











    Hi Gagman . . .



    I'm back again, for a little while, at least . . .

    Just spending some Quality Time with my 'Familia' !



    That is an Entertaining & 'Whimsical' piece you've posted on

    the 'Bearded Hollywood' . . .



    And that Portrait of Lois Wilson in that article . . .

    She looks 'dead set' serious holding that gun and aiming it @ the viewer.



    And that Trade Ad for 'Lilies of the Field' with Corinne Griffith

    is just 'Outstanding' . . .



    Is this 'Strongheart' or 'Rin Tin Tin' ?

    Strongheart reminds me of the Name of that Can of Dog Food.

    Maybe this is where it came from . . . but anyways . . .

    This is a very 'Handsome' German Shepard. . . .

    with his Bright Brown Eyes and 'Alert' Ears.

    And I betch' his Nose is Wet & Cold, too !



    And I Love that Article of the 'Handsome Men on the Screen'.

    I'm glad to see the Hollywood's ACTORS, here . . .

    We don't see enough of them . . . They've been Outnumbered

    by All the Beauties in Hollywood.



    And I Love that Portrait of Barbara La Marr and Lewis Stone.

    What I find intriguing is their Portrait in the OVAL Framing.

    I've always found that an OVAL Framimg adds much Elegance !



    And what a 'STRIKING' Pose that is of Pauline Starke and Antonio Moreno

    in a Passionate Embrace . . . He Looks so 'Dashing' and she, so Captivated

    by his Embrace . . . Lovely Picture !



    And Those are Wonderful Magazine Covers of Valentino. The Artist never

    fails to Capture his Well Chiseled Profile and Physique . . . a very Handsome Man, indeed !



    Thanks again, Gagman ! happy.gif








    Hi Gagman . . .



    Here I am ! . . . I've been spending some 'Family Time' before

    my son leaves for Texas for a short while . . .

    I was able to 'squeeze' n this time on my computer.



    I'm Not surprised to see the Top 8 'Most Beautiful Actress' Poll.

    But I was Surprised Not to find Lillian Gish as one the the 'Most Beautiful' . . .



    Just my Opinion. confused.gif






    And that's a Lovely Picture of Colleen Moore . . and Yes ! she does look

    very Serious . . . More of a 'Determined' Look !



    And Barbara La Marr appears 'Regal' in her Feathered & Beaded Headpiece.



    Great COLORING on the Mary Miles Minter Pose . . . Those are Great,

    Contrasting Colors used . . . Burgandy, Forest Green and Blues . . .



    And Renee Adoree looks so Beautiful with her Blue Eyes & Dark hair in both

    Portraits of her that you've posted.



    And those Photos of Corinne are just AWESOME . . .

    In her 1st Photo, she appears very 'Prim and Serene', in her Beautiful, White LACE

    Dress . . . with a Rich Blue Background.

    And there's something 'TRAJIC & BEAUTIFUL' running hand in hand in her

    2nd portrait . . .I Love her Rich, Dark & 'WILD' Hair . . . and that Deep Green




    And such a different 'light' to see Billie Dove in, dressed in 'revealing' tattered clothes,

    with a bandana around her head & holding an apple . . . and appearing as though

    she's communicating with the gods . . .



    Great Portraits, Gagman.



    Thanks much ! happy.gif

    and I can hardly Wait to find out WHO made the TOP 8

    and just WHO was Number ONE (1) on the List . . .



    Oh, I also 'Googled' the info on Martha Mansfield and

    Barbara La Marr on how they 'MET' their demise . . .

    They sure were Young when they died . . . very Sad !



    And for just that Alone . . . My 'hats' off to ALL these

    Beautiful, Silent-Screen, Movie Actresses who've helped

    make the watching of their films that Much More Pleasurable !



    Thanks, Gagman !





























    Hi Gagman . . .



    WOW ! Another Great 'Shot' of Baby Peggy . . .

    on the Front Cover of Picture Play . . .

    How Cute is she, with her 'pursed' little Smile ?



    And Photoplay Magazines have very 'Deep' Coloring.

    I've always thought that Pola Negri's eyes were brown, too.

    Who knows ? . . . But she's as Dramatic-looking, as always,

    and just as Beautiful.



    And the Pola Negri Doll, too, looks Beautiful ....

    with Brown or Blue Eyes.



    Awesome Magazine Covers, Gagman.

    Thanks for Posting.








    Hi Gagman . . .



    I'm truly Enjoying those Pictures of Baby Peggy Montgomery,

    especially in the One where she's 'impersonating' Pola Negri . . .

    How Adorable is that . . . complete with 'hand on hip' pose.



    Baby Peggy was just Super Adorable . . .

    and thats an Awesome 'Peggy' Doll Collection that

    she had collected, too.



    And those Advertisments are just as 'Stunning'.

    The one with Milton Sills in 'Puppets', 'A Thief in Paradise',

    and 'The Eternal City' . . . Just Fabulous !



    And, of course, our 'Dapper' John Gilbert appearing

    Cool & Dashing with a 'dangling' cigarette . . . and brimming with Confidence !



    Great Posts, Gagman.








    Hi Gagman . . .



    Those Novels look like they would be some 'Fine Reading' !

    Especially the 'Sinners in Heaven' . . . well now, taking a better look,

    I think BOTH would be Awesome !



    And that Lobby Card, 'Women Love Diamonds' if Just GREAT !



    And those are 2 Different Poses of Mary Philbin . . .

    One with her hair under great 'Control' as she herself, seems to be Portrayed.

    (Love that Teal colored background) . . .



    And the other with her gorgeous brown hair . . . ALL 'splayed' out Beautifully!




    Thanks for Sharing, Gagman !happy.gif











    Hi CawkercityKid . . . And Welcome to the Boards !

    Thank you for Sharing that YOUTUBE Video of 'Claire Windsor' Slides.

    Would this be another Example of the 'Vingtage Colored Lantern Slides'

    that Gagman showed on this Thread ? . . . Just Awesome !

    Thanks again, Cawkercitykid . . . happy.gif




    Hi Gagman . . .



    Those 'Vintage Colored Lantern Slides Showcase' are just 'EXQUISITE' !



    What EXACTLY is 'Lantern Slides' ?

    I Believe, This is the First Time I'm

    hearing of it !



    The Slides shown here are Just WONDERFUL !

    And so are the Ones of Clara Blow . . .

    Thank you so much, Gagman, For Introducing this Technique . . .

    to me, anyways!



    And How Great are the 'Boudoir Dolls' that Leatrice Joy is holding ?

    Such Outstanding Colors . . . and Vintage Style, too.



    Your Posts are Wonderful, Gagman . . . Great Coloring, too !



    Thanks again ! happy.gif











    Hey . . . 'Phineas and Ferb' .... How COOL is that, Capuchin ?



    I see there is SO Much FUN one can have with JELLO ..... I Just LOVE it !



    NOT to mention, HOW Delicious & Mouth Watering the End Results are, too !



    I'm going to have to look into Checking out some 'MOLDs', too !

    It sounds tome that, that in itself Can be a lot of Fun, as well . . .



    Thanks a lot, Capuchin . . . And Happy 'JIGGLING' !












    Jake . . .



    That is such an Enriching Story about your cat 'Tomball' . . .

    or Rather, your Husband's Cat !



    How Clever & WISE is that, to have 'Claimed' your

    husband's 'Head' as his . . . That is so Whimsical !

    And very 'Territorial', I might ADD . . .



    You gotta Love 'em ! . . .

    Dogs, Cats . . . All GOD's Wonderful Creatures

    in the Animal Kingdom.

    They seem to possess an Extra SENSE that we are

    NOT aware of . . . BUT has Served to AID us (humans)

    when we Needed it.



    Thanks so much for Sharing, Jake.








    Hi Gagman . . .



    What an Entertaining Piece of 'Whimsical Caricatures' that have been drawn out here by 'Ralph Barton' for Vanity Fair . .



    I was able to make out some of the 'Actors' @ 'First Glance' . . . One of them being 'Colleen Moore', which was rather Easy due to the different, 'shaded' Eyes.



    Some of the Others would be:

    Charlie Chaplin

    Will Rogers

    Harry Langdon

    Louise Brooks

    John Barrymore

    Baby Peggy

    Eddie Cantor

    Adolph Manjou



    I agree, Gagman . . . It is a rather a 'Large' piece to try to Scroll down each time and Manuever the 'Sliding Bar', back & forth, to try & find the Actor associated with their Table Number. But I understand that that can't be avoided, as, like you say, to have made this copy smaller would have been harder to make out the faces. But it was FUN, anyways.



    I Enjoyed this Piece.

    Thanks for Sharing it !





    Hey Gagman . . .



    First of all, just let me say . . . What a 'Stark' Beauty, Claire Windsor is in her Portrait . . . Her Beautiful, short Red Wavy Hair goes so Well with her Lovely BLUE Eyes . . . that seem to say SO MUCH, just with her Subtle & Demure 'OVER the SHOULDER' glance, that I'm sure is 'Beckoning' every Male available around . . .

    Love her Pale, Lace dress that goes so well with her Coloring !



    And what a great AD for 'English Clay'. I think those 4 ladies would testify in it's behalf. I enjoy knowing the 'toiletries' of what the Vintage Starlets used to use.



    And that is such a 'Darling' Portrait of that Pretty Girl, you've titled, 'Cute As The Dickens' . . . She appears somewhat 'WAIF-like' and UNassuming, in her gingham dress and barefoot, sitting on an Old Crate. Out of the 3 ladies you've mentioned that she could be, I opt for 'Mary Brian'. She sort of has that 'deep set' eyes and high cheek bones. Lovely Picture.



    And that's such a Colorful AD for Tom Mix in 'The Last of the Duanes' . . . The Colors are Enriching !



    And that 1922 Lobby Card with Marion Davies . . . How Awesome is that ? . . . Great Coloring and in 'Olde English' Script.



    And the Poster for Midnight Sun is So Exquisite . . . Laura La Plante & her handsome Beau appear in 'Photograph' while the Rest of the AD appears in Lithograph Style . . .



    Thank you for Posting, Gagman.

    Wonderul Posts.














    Hi Gagman . . .



    What a Delightful . . . and Colorful Poster that is for 'SIX DAYS'.

    It's very 'Whimsical' with those 2 'Lovers' atop of that Yacht.

    This is Awesome Advertising !



    And those Photos of Pola Negri . . . even though the portraits are in 'Thumbnail' size . . . Her Dark Beauty still stands out. Though I have to say that in her 'smiling' picture, she does seem somewhat 'subdued' and not as 'dark' looking.



    And our Colleen Moore ? . . . Was she once a 'ballerina' ?

    She's standing on her tippy toes . . . unless she has help that we (the viewer) can't see.



    And that's sure is a 'No Nonsense' portrait of Miss Moore in her Red Velvet hat and Green & White Outfit . . . with a very 'She's Not to be Trifled with' look.



    And I love that AD for 'Ella Cinders' with Colleen Moore . . . either the 'Amber Tint' or the Yellowing with Age . . . sure gives this Artifacts it's 'Antiquity'!



    And What a Delight Clara Bow appears in 'Rough House Rosie' . . . She so 'Bright & Lively' in this one . . . Not to mention 'Ravenous' too !



    And Corinne Looks Elegant in her Red Velvet Dinner Robe ...

    Just Beautiful !



    Great Viewing, Gagman !



  16. Hey Capuchin . . .







    I LOVE Gummy Bears ! . . .







    Thanks for Youtube Video . . . My mouth was watering when he Tasted them . . . Yum !







    And the Great Part was that it was Quick & Simple to Make, too !







    Thanks for Sharing.

    Jake . . .



    That is such a 'Poignant' story you tell about 'LUCKY' the Cat.

    He is simply Adorable . . . and such a 'Survivor' during one of history's worst catastrophes . . .



    He appears so 'Precious' all Curled up in his 'Blue Box'.

    He's definately one of Nature's finest . . . as are the other animals that survived Katrina.



    They truly are a 'Testament' !



    Thanks for sharing. happy.gif











    Thanks, Capuchin, for your input . . .



    That is So Cool what you do with the Jello and the Test Tubes ...

    How Clever is that .... and FUN ! like you say ... to fill each one of the 'set' Jello with different creams.



    There were 2 things that I can Recall, my son telling me, when he was on the Atkins diet several years ago . . .



    That you can make a big bowl of Sugar-Free Jello and after it's set,

    apply a Generous amount of Whipped Cream . . . which he says is like partaking of a 'Heavenly Parfait' . . . and NO CARBs ! He remembers almost feeling guilty for eating such a 'Rich Tasting' Dessert.



    The 2nd was for a Quick 'Relief' of that Gnawing, hunger Pangs, was to have some 'PORK SKIN RINDs' and Diet Soda.

    (I guess the 'Fat' in the Pork Skin, temporarily alleviates the hunger ... but he told me to go 'easy' on the Pork Rinds, because of their 'Fat and Salt' ingredients.



    And I'm sorry to hear of that effect that Splenda has on you. Have you considered trying 'TRUVIA' or 'STEVIA' Natural Sweetner. They come from a leafy plant. I've been using Splenda, but I want to try my hand in this more Natural Sweetners.



    And I'm also going to try my hand @ that Redi Whip, Cocoa & Splenda 'Mousse' Recipe . . . That sounds Awesome ! ... and Simple ! Not to mention, the answer to a 'Sweet Tooth' here.



    Thanks for sharing, Capuchin . . .











    That's an Interesting Recipe's of Carol Lombard, VP19 . . .

    and found in a 1933 Magazine, yet . . . How Great is that ?



    But is definately sounds 'Light' and Yummy ! MMmmmm !







    Just Wanted to Enquire to All who see this Thread . . .

    if there are any 'Low Carb' Recipes that you can share.



    My son has started to Eat 'Low Carbs' to bring his sugar down

    before a particular 'Operation' can be performed.



    I've decided to 'JOIN' him in his 'Low Carb' Diet as I really

    need to bring my Sugar down, as well . . .

    in fact, my entire household could use a 'Complete Make Over'.



    Some are in 'denial' and Refusing, but that's OK. They'll come around in 'due time'.

    'SLOWLY, BUT SURELY', I always say.



    So if anyome has any 'EASY AND DELICIOUS' Recipes that I might be able to 'try' out,



    I, for one, woud truly Appreciate it.



    Thank you . . . happy.gif




    This also includes any 'Low Carb' DESSERTS, too ......

    if there is such a thing ! silly.gif








    Bildwasser ~~

    ( . . . , we would go up to the balcony . . . )




    Ahhh, Yes . . . the Balconies !

    I had almost forgotten about those . . . making 'speedy', Youthful decisions whether to 'WATCH' the Movie in the Balcony or Main Floor . . . Running and Scurring, up and down, with friends, trying to decide where the Best place to be ... and more often than not, The Balconies were often chosen by us . . . and later in our 'TeenAge' years . . . it became a 'Make Out' section . . . Oftentimes, just resulting in a guy's 'nervous' arm coming around the shoulder.



    Looking back, I can remember 'Sensing' his collecting all his nerves to attempt that one move of bringing his arm 'Up and Around' my shoulder . . . and Once making that 'Brave Move' ... his 'hold' growing just a little bit tighter as we nervously 'Feinged' Interest in the Movie . . . Even now, I can Only remember bits & pieces of 'COOL HAND LUKE' . . . But HOW those 'Butterflies' were fluttering like 'CRAZY' in my stomach . . .



    Guys, I just have to say that YOU may have made that First 'Nervous' Move on your Date, way back when . . . And we Gals may have given the impression of 'COOLNESS' . . . But just let me say that that 'ANTICIPATION' Build up ..... brought on by you .... could REALLY get us Going ! wink.gif



    . . . OH, THOSE ENDEARING BALCONIES ! love.gif














    Hi Gagman . . .



    That Poster for the 'Silent Avengers' is Just Awesome, Not to mention Whimsical, Humorous ... and CLEVER !



    With all the talk & showings of the actual 'AVENGERS' in the Theatres, this is definately a 'Tweak' in the 'Scheme of Things' ... LOVE It !



    And your Post of your 3 Gals, Bessie Love, Norma Shearer, and Eleanor Boardman are just Gorgeous. They are just Beautiful and Lovely to look at.



    Thanks again Gagman.








    Hi Gagman . . .



    Thanks for sharing that Clip of Corinne Griffith . . .

    It's rather 'Spectacular' . . . 'SIX DAYS' (1923).

    And if it was written by Elinor Glyn . . . I'm guessing that

    it had to be 'Explicite' for that time . . .



    Thanks Gagman.
