Kyle In Hollywood's CENSORED Ephemera Drawer


Recommended Posts

I've decided to begin posting some very random images and other ephemera that I find interesting. It may or may not relate to current TCM Programming. I hope you find it interesting too.

*This Is The Army* - Los Angeles Public Library Photo Archives

A photograph taken on a Warner Bros. soundstage during the filming of *This Is The Army* (1942). I don't think I've ever seen a better photograph that showed just how BIG and cavernous Hollywood soundstages were.

Those are definitely cool. Did you notice the ship on the right-hand side?

 

I've seen a couple of photos of Henry Koster and Margaret O'Brien on the set of *The Unfinished Dance* that showed just how high the sets are. It would definitely give me vertigo dangling my legs over the edge.

I love those behind the scenes pictures! They are sometimes funny--like intimate love scenes with a camera 2 feet over their heads. Ive got one of Greta Garbo in the final scene of Queen Christina and the "ship" is just the prow. When I think of the scene in the movie, I am seriously impressed--it doesn;t occur to me that she's anywhere but on a ship, out in the middle of the ocean.

That's a good one. I still remember his cartoon of a couple of strange looking aliens/monsters, meeting on Bleeker St., in NYC. One says to the other, "I couldn't say. I'm a stranger here myself." :)

I've never seen the movie, but that is one striking image of Garson. It would look good on somebody's wall. I can't believe they wouldn't have used it in the movie.

 

One thing that's always intrigued me about moviemaking? How did they eliminate traffic noise, ground and air, from their outdoor sets? It looks like the *Thief* set is only half-a-block from a four-lane road.

Pssst. *Thief* was a silent movie. But I won't tell anyone you forgot that.

My brother used to have a travel poster for an airline proclaiming flights to Cuba.. Now those flights will be happening again.

 

I will check with my sister in law to see up I can get an image to upload.

 

These shots cause me to check my old Cinema Arts magazines for something.. May I contribute here?

h5. Wait, I have an idea.. No worries, Kyle.

It's amazing to me that your images keep getting censored by the WebAdmin despite the fact that they are ads created by the studios to publicize the very movies, in this case, mentioned in the ad and in the previous case of *Footlight Parade*, the very one sheet used not only to publicize the film but used on the DVD cover art (that can be found on this very website).

 

Makes me shake my head.

I don't understand the censoring either but please don't let it discourage you from continuing to do these threads. So many of us here really appreciate and look forward to them.
