  1. Just a quick THANK YOU to all who have helped here. hope you are all staying safe and well. I actually know someone that was hospitalized for a little more than 3 weeks with coronavirus. It was very very scary. She is home now and VERY happy. So please, folks, play it safe and stay well!
  2. Hello, I am you are all well and staying safe. I've been staying indoors and watching TCM alot. Took a break today though. I am stumped on most of these images. Most are from 1980s; didn't go to the movies too much in those days-- college work! any thoughts? thanks. #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 i think its richard gere, but can't place the film #7 #8 #9 #10 #11 #12
  3. Hello, I hope everyone here is doing well and staying safe. TCM is really great during these difficult times! I was wondering if anyone here recognizes anyone in this still, and possibly recognize the film? thanks!
  4. Hello all: OK, Here are the signatures (closeup) as well as some of the really nice photographs I have recently acquired. A. Greta Garbo, original MGM photo from TWO FACED WOMAN B. Eleanor Powell, original publicity photo circa 1931 (Broadway show) C. THE GRAPES OF WRATH, original 10x13 20th century fox photo Henry Fonda and Jane Darwell D. HE WHO GETS SLAPPED (1924) original 10x13 MGM photograph portrait LON CHANEY, 1st MGM feature film E. JIMMY DURANTE and fellow vaudevillains Lou Clayton and Eddie Jackson F. Leslie Howard in ROMEO AND JULIET (1936) (mom's personal favorite shakespeare film!) And here are the close-up signatures: Photo #1 Photo #3 photos #4 photo #7 photo #8 photo #9 Curious to hear reaction to the first six!
  5. Hello all: I got a nice photograph collection of actresses whom I believe are from about 100 years ago. I am also guessing that most are theater actresses but many of these ladies often appeared in silent films as well. Some of them are signed but I cannot read the signatures, some I can read but I cannot find any info on them. any help would be appreciated. 1. glamour photo, signed "Maude". Perhaps Maude Adams? 2. Florence Day? Anyone ever heard of her? 3. There is a signature on this one, but I cannot read it. ideas? 4. Another complete mystery. Back has pencil writing that says TILLER GIRLS?? 5. I am tempted to guess this is ANNA MAE WONG but I am not sure. 6. Again, I cannot read the signature. ideas? 7. 8. 9
  6. Thanks. HEre are four more. I know the first one is BLONDE VENUS. Isn't it terrific! Are the others from BLONDE VENUS too??
  7. Hello everyone: can anyone identify the film from this great image of Marlene Dietrich??
  8. Hello, has anyone seen this film? I can only assume it's awful. I read that as the film was in production, the script continually changed creating issues between Katharine Hepburn and Bob Hope because she discovered it was turning into more of a BOB HOPE comedy with his usual shtick (that wasn't what she signed up for). Anyone, can anyone identify the man on the far right on this still? thanks.
  9. an update regarding the SET DESIGN photographs, #3 and 4. It has been suggested that these photographs are actually from Hollywood Cavalcade (1939); that film **WAS** directed by Irving Cummings and, "Common Clay" was the title of a fictitious film-within-a-film. SO, is anyone here familiar with the film HOLLYWOOD CAVALCADE? Does TCM show it? THANKS!
  10. hello, thanks for the responses. I think you are right about the set designs being COMMON CLAY. I saw the directors name (JACK CUMMINGS) on one of the slate boards, but apparently he is not associated with this film. thanks again!
  11. Hello, I was wondering if anyone might be able to help me ID these photos: #1 and#2 I believe are two different silent actresses? #3 and #4 are photos of a film set, director JACK CUMMINGS? and #5, I do not recognize this actor. anyone know? THANKS!
  12. Hello, I recently picked up a nice piece of British sheet music with a YOUNG Judy Garland from the film LISTEN DARLING. THe song is TEN PINS IN THE SKY.... this is what she sings in the film, and this is also what Judy sings on the Decca 78RPM. SO, take a look at the British sheet music.... the song is entitled "NINE pins in the sky"! I don't get it! I asked a British friend of mine if the bowl with nine pins in stead of ten, but they don't do that! any thoughts??!?
  13. it sounds terrific; always looking for a good film to watch--- just bought a copy on ebay!~ will let you know my thoughts!
  14. Hi friends: I"m trying to identify this film with Wallace Beery. The code on the lower right is 5SS, and my Movie Stills guide doesn't have a listing for it. Anyone know the film, and the woman to the left of him? thanks!
  15. About 15 years ago, the Lincoln Center film Society had a salute to Stanley Donen. all this films were shown. ANd, Mr. Donen actually came down to the theater and talked a little bit before a few of the screenings. I remember the evening of FUNNY FACE. A beautiful print was screened; Mr. Donen talked a little about working with Fred Astaire and AUdrey Hepburn. And there were celebrities (Phyllis Newman) in the audience as well. The night they screened MOVIE MOVIE was especially nice. The curator of the project told us that Mr. Donen agreed to appear, talk to the audience, if he promised to screen MOVIE, MOVIE. Afterward, Mr. Donen told the curator that it was a "lousy print" to which the curator responded that there were 'no prints' of the film anywhere. They got the print for the screening from a university library. It was very very good. Since it was apparently such an important film to Mr. Donen, I am hoping that TCM includes MOVIE MOVIE in their tribute. I am also delighted to read that it has finally been restored and is available on BLU-RAY. Another film of Mr. DOnen's which is 'perfect' is CHARADE. RIP Stanley Donen!
