Hi Mongo:

 

Tomorrow, April 8 is the 83rd birthday of one of my favorite movie girls: Shirley Mills.

 

I know you're the man who can do it. Can you find and post some nice rare picture (or pictures) of Shirley that I've maybe not seen before? I'm a long-time fan and have collected many pictures of her, but you always do such a great job on this thread, I'm sure you can find something!

 

For anyone perhaps not familiar with Shirley, here's where to find info:

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHIRLEY!!

Mongo;

Thanks for finding those pictures of the charming Miss Mills and remembering to wish her a Happy Birthday. I "Shirley" appreciate it.

 

Even when playing the bad girl (which she did so well in such films as "The Underpup", "Young People" and "Five Little Peppers in Trouble") she was always a joy to see.

 

And if TCM could show more Universal pictures, her great dancing skills could be seen by everyone in the several early 1940's musicals she did with the Jivin' Jacks and Jills group, along with stars like Donald O'Connor, Peggy Ryan, and Gloria Jean. Perfect clean fun family entertainment. It is really a shame that to be able to see them you need to know a film collector or settle for poorly copied bootlegs of these wonderful films.

 

Then, for Shirley in a serious role, it didn't come more dramatic, and ultimately tragic than "None Shall Escape" (1944), a Columbia feature that TCM showed a couple years ago. And she handled it well.

 

Happy Birthday Shirley!!

Joe, I can just hear Col. Sherman Potter, saying, "That SonJa Henie......whew......"

 

Thanks for the great pictures. I love that you are putting pictures with the birthday celebrants. I always love Grady Sutton, but never remember his name. Same with the wonderful Walter Connolly.

Keep them coming, PLEASE!!!!!

Thank you, Nancy. It's my pleasure. I intend to continue the thread at least through to August, a year since it all began. There has to be a few thousand images in this album by now.

Catwoman,

 

Here are detailed instructions for posting pictures

to the TCM message boards:

 

1. Add the picture to your "My Pictures" folder on

your computer (either by scanning the picture in or

copying it from the internet or an email, etc.).

2. Go to www.photobucket.com and set up an account.

It is free and quick.

3. Click on the "my album" tab near the top right of

the screen.

4. Under the text where photobucket invites you to

"Upload Images & Video," click the "Browse ..."

button. That will open your "My Pictures" folder.

5. Select the picture from your "My Pictures" folder

you would like to add, then hit OK.

6. Click the "Upload it." button on the photobucket

page. This will add the photo to your photobucket

album.

7. Scroll down the page until you see the picture.

Below the picture there are 3 windows: A "Url"

window, a "Tag" window, and a "Img" window.

8. Select all the text inside the "Tag" window,

right-click, and select "copy."

9. Go to the TCM page, and paste the text you have

just copied into a TCM message.

10. In other words, simply copy and paste the

contents of the picture's "Tag" window into your TCM

message, and the picture will show up after the

message is posted (but not as you are editing your

message). You can click TCM's "preview" button to see

what the picture will look like.

11. In your TCM message, you can type text above the

picture tag. However, you will need to type

after each paragraph of text, and between the text

and the picture, if you want your message to have

paragraph spacing.

It took me a while to grasp it (pactice). Good luck!

Joe aka Mongo

I know your note was to Catwoman, but I would also like to thank you for posting the directions. The air has been filled with purple language at my place while I tried to post pictures from Photobucket. I finally know how..but am keeping your directions close by..just in case! Thanks again.
