Have a Happy Thanksgiving

So, I've got the Thanksgiving meal all planned ... just need to find someone who will prepare it for me!  (Pecan pie ... to die for!)


Vacation time for the blog ... will return after Thanksgiving, on the 29th.  Kathy has to get busy on her Christmas decorating.  Time just goes by too darn fast these days.

The Exciting Lives of Stars

 Back awhile, I purchased a small lot of celebrity snapshots which included one of Mr. Montgomery, of course.  Surprisingly, all the shots were of interest.  Like Bing Crosby standing in a parking area doing something with what appears to be a second pipe.  

And Errol Flynn picking up an item of clothing from the tailor shop.  I hope it is a jacket to replace the one that he is wearing ...

And a very young Frank Sinatra smiling.  There must be a pretty young girl off camera that has caught his attention.  

By the way, the signatures are not legit, just there to identify the stars, I assume.  At least I don't believe Errol would misspell his name.

Ready on the Set! Bob, Wake Up!

 Have always thought it was rather amazing you could get good performances from movie actors under the very adverse conditions of filming in the early sound days.  All those lights, the heat, a huge camera, sound equipment, a dozen people crammed in a few feet from you ... yukky.

In the photo below, taken on a set of Ever Since Eve (1937), the set looks almost roomy.

A tighter shot on Bob and Marion ... Marion has pencil in hand, ready for action!  

        That's one bored Robert Montgomery.
