Scottman,

 

Mind you, it's not a certainty that THE ROUGH RIDERS is still lost. I mean Rodney Sauer and most other Nitrateville membered knew nothing about RAMONA even having survived let along currently undergoing restoration until it was mentioned last week on the boards.

 

Here is another rare movie poster from 1922

An autographed still of Colleen Moore from THE PERFECT FLAPPER (1924). Photo is either heavily tinted, or somebody used crayola's on it? Not sure. Wish I had a better quality version.

Hello Gagman . . .

 

 

That's a Lovely Portrait of a Young Mary Astor. She has such Beautiful & Expressive Eyes !

 

 

And I Especially Admire your Posters of 'Back to God's Country' and 'The Off-Shore Pirate' . . . How Exquisite they Both are !

 

 

And that is an Interesting Photo 'Still' of Colleen Moore . . .

The Background appears to have been painted by 'Van Gogh' !

 

 

And that is such a Lovely and Close up Picture of Marion Davies.

For the most part, she always seems to be in a 'Comedic' pose ...

But here, she appears to be in an 'Ethereal' state ... Great colors, too.

 

 

Thank you, Gagman !

That's an Awesome AD, Gagman, of how the Beauty Stars of 'Old' kept their Hair looking so 'Sheen and Managable'. And the Oil in Coconut Shampoo would be able to give them the 'Look' they want.

But I can't read where it advertises that it is a 'Coconut' shampoo ... unless it's something you're able to read @ your end . . . But nonetheless, it's an Awesome AD . . No doubt from one of those earlier Magazines !

 

 

And Pola Negri looks absolutely 'sweet' while playing with her little kitty cat ... Meowww ! Great Picture of her and her 'Louise Brooks' hair cut. She must be a user of that Coconut Shampoo, too. :)

 

 

Thanks Gagmen !

ugaarate,

 

Here is another ad for Mulsified. I believe it is from 1926? Don't remember for sure. Could still be '25? I know I posted this before, but it could have been as much as two or three years ago. So you may have forgotten about it, or not seen it at all. I recall that we were trying to figure out just who was all pictured in the ad. Maybe it was part of the old Hollywood Revue of 1929 thread from "General Discussions?"

Hi Gagman . . .

 

 

Yes, I So Admire these Vintage ADs . . . and this One advertising 'Mulsified Cocoanut Oil Shampoo' ... How Awesome !

 

 

Can you imagine being surrounded by all these 'Beauties' with their 'tresses' having been saturated in Cocoanut Oil . . . Can't you just imagine the Heavenly Scent of Cocoanuts permeating the Room ? .. How Intoxicating and illusions of 'Far Away' Islands that must have conjured up ! . . . And to further the imagination, Maybe All these same Beauties were gathered @ the Cocoanut Grove, too ! ;)

 

Lovel these Old Ads !

Thanks Gagman

Wendy,

 

Bob Fells has posted this cropped Lobby-card of the Ronald Colman-Vilma Banky film *TWO LOVERS (1928).* He said that these are the original colors, but I don't know why he did not include an image of the complete card? You can't read the title of the movie.

That's weird...

 

The colors are definitely in your palette. I know you are going for a two strip look in your work a lot of the time. I notice that Vilma is quite pale pink and there's a lot of blue here - at least that's what it looks like to me.

 

I still like the browns in your posts, tans like the male skin tones, the brownish red of cloth and the darker reds of lips, red purple clothing thrown in look very natural and warm to me

Wendy,

 

Yeah this was also posted by Bob Fells. Lo, why does that illustration look more like John Gilbert, than it does Ronald Colman? Initially I was a bit puzzled. Knowing Jack never worked with Vilma.

Note: This is an original color insert from a newspaper, not Bobfells color.

I know they are lobby cards. I think your photos are quite close to those original colors....your pics have the right feel of the original color schemes of those lobby cards and early technicolor stills. That's all I'm saying. It's a compliment.

 

And I LOVE that lobby card for *Two Lovers*.... yum, Colman looks great there - I agree he looks exactly like Gilbert.

 

They started in films about the same time, so it could have simply been the style.... I think Gilbert was probably a quicker, more mercurially rising star than Colman - he certainly worked far more through the teens, though it's hard to say who had bigger status as an actor in the twenties - It's probably Gilbert, though Colman had a lot of good solid starring roles too. I wouldn't be surprised if Gilbert and Colman were groomed the same way on purpose - Gilbert became so wildly popular that they might have tried to recreate him in other actors.They did that with the female stars.

 

When Gloria Swanson was immensely popular, many other stars incorporated her look. The same with Crawford, Garbo and Dietrich. You can see many pictures of different actresses done up a la those four in the book FOUR FABULOUS FACES. It's pretty interesting how the studios subtly made over their actresses according to who was the major trend setter at the time.

 

Here are Ramon Novarro and Gilbert sharing a joke about their moustaches during a Photoplay shoot in July of 1926:

Wendy,

 

Yeah it appears that Novarro is in costume for the production of OLD HEIDELBERG, while Gilbert is in his guise as Christian for BARDELYS THE MAGNIFICENT.

 

 

Incidentally, I think I have mentioned this before, but Claire Windsor was originally cast as Gilbert's leading lady Roxelanne in BARDLEYS. It's easy to understand how Eleanor Boardman having just become the new Mrs. King Vidor got the part instead. What is not so clear is that BARDELYS was intended to made entirely in Two-Color Technicolor. So why didn't that happen? I guess it's atributed to the fact that Douglas Fairbanks came out with THE BLACK PIRATE and MGM didn't want people to think that Jack was copping Fairbanks in that regard.

 

 

Incidentally, when are we going to see THE BLACK PIRATE on TCM? Kino released a Blu-ray version about a year ago. Please put in a request when you have time. Thanks.
