Get Your Motor Runnin'

At least they didn't dump their bike - like I did. Probably because I didn't sit on the bike like she is (heh). I'm guessing Ann Harding? Am I right?

Update: We've got an ID - Biography of a Bachelor Girl. Here's the photo caption: "Bob and Ann prepare for a fast spin over the roads at Lake Arrowhead."

A Favorite

Kathy is filling again as CM guest blogger....

I love Bob and James Cagney photos, their deep and lasting friendship captured by the camera.  And Bob in uniform.  Tuxes and military uniforms, flattering to most men, Bob at his best.  So, you combine the two and you have one of my favorite photos, a publicity shot for The Gallant Hours. Two old pros, Bob on the set of his last movie and Cagney's second to last. (Jim gives his final CAGNEY performance in One, Two, Three - excellent movie, a superb turn of acting by Jim, what a note to go out on.  Those movies he made in the 80's...well, I do hope they made an old man feel good for the doing.)

Enjoy Your Ride

Or in Bob's case here, not so sure how enjoyable it could be in a suit. Personally, I'm a grease magnet on a bike. What shall we say, 1929ish?
