A Star Has Died. Do You Know Where Your Collectibles Are?

I just read about the passing of Elizabeth Taylor. I'll have to admit, I've only seen one or two of her films, so I know very little of her work (recommendations welcomed!).

This post is less about Ms. Taylor and more about the feeding frenzy now going on Ebay. As of 3:45 PM today, 115 pages of goods. Yes, we have:
  • Tribute t-shirts
  • Barbie dolls
  • Autographs ranging from $10 to $2,500 - mostly fake I'm sure
  • Ice cream caps
  • Maltese dog ornaments
  • Birthday programs (did you ever have a program for your b-day?)
  • Beanie baby bears
I'm sure as the evening goes on, the number of items will only increase. The free market in action, that's for sure.

Kids, buyer beware. And Ms. Taylor, rest in peace.

Favorites: Night Must Fall

Night Must Fall
A beaut of a photo, and one I haven't seen before. Belated thanks to Debbie for sharing one of her favorites.

Have a fav. Bob photo you want to share? Drop me a comment!

A Word From Management

I'm changing my hosting situation in April and as a result, all links to photos and files posted prior to January will be broken. So if there's something you want to download, grab it now - I don't intend to update any links. I'll still have everything locally if there's a need to grab something later.

In addition, my Classic Montgomery email address will be going away. Best way to contact me is to leave a post. Thanks!

Millandia Charm

So, when do you figure the last time Ray Milland was on a magazine cover? 50 years ago or so? Voila, TCM Now Playing for April 2011.

Now Playing April 2011

Photo is from Ministry of Fear, the only movie where Nazi spys and cake collide. You'd look scared too if you got sucked into that plot. Anyway, it is a good film and I do recommend . . . with a slice of cake. Watch it April 12.

Oh, and where did this "Millandia charm" thing come from. Tis a Robert Osborne-ism.

Cute as a couple. Wish we could have seen more.
