The Post an Interesting Pic thread


Recommended Posts

Can I interrupt for a technical question?

 

In this new "improved" website format, how does one post a picture?

 

Used to be easy: Copy and paste. Problem is that that doesn't work any more, at least not for me on either Chrome or Firefox.

 

Many thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Photoplay, July 1928, with some items promoting DeMille's latest The Godless Girl, including a mention/photo of his art director (I thought he was a costume designer?) Mitchell Leisen:

Note also the anecdote from legendary wit Wilson Mizner, detailing how to skip out on your rent.

I'm not certain of the magazine nor, unfortunately, the date of the article. By his image, though, it's clearly a photo taken at least some time during the '60s. It's an interesting picture, though, considering the attitude expressed by Sanders in it, particularly when you consider his 1972 suicide note; "Dear World, I am leaving because I am bored. I feel I have lived long enough. I am leaving you with your worries in this sweet cesspool. Good luck."

Bette Davis and Errol Flynn with their pets on the set of The Sisters, filmed in 1938.

 

Flynn was a devoted dog admirer. The schnauzer pictured here, Arno, was a particular favourite of his, often accompanying the actor on his film sets. Arno was also taken by his owner on board his schooner, the Sirocco, where the dog would entertain Flynn and his guests by leaping in excitement at the sight of flying fish.

 

Arno disappeared off the schooner in 1941, his body being found on shore a few days later. The actor could not bear to see the dog's body, asking, though, for his collar, which he buried in a private ceremony.

 

Flynn would have a variety of pets throughout his life, but when he wrote his autobiography in the late '50s, Arno was the only one to which he devoted a couple of paragraphs.
