Back to School With Bob & Myrna

Oh, yes, I know ... the kiddies have been back to school for a couple weeks now.  But, heck, I don't want to have to wait a whole year to do this entry.  These are unused paper tablets c.1940.  The paper is still good if browned a tad, otherwise they are in great shape for their age.  It is interesting to think of the items that survive the years, and frustrating to think of those that have not. 

Bob and Myrna were great together.  I'm sure being good friends helped with the chemistry between them.  Per, they were to be teamed again in Love on the Run (1936), but their roles eventually went to Crawford and Gable.  I doubt Bob and Myrna could have saved that movie either.  Anyway, 'tis too bad they didn't make more movies together. 

And, not having anything at all to do with the above topic, TCM has a great schedule for this coming Saturday night:  Lifeboat (1944) with the hunk John Hodiak; Abandon Ship (1957) with Ty Power giving one of his better performances; and Titanic (1953), a great soaper and tear jerker.  That should keep you from signing onto a cruise for another year.

But somehow, I'm oddly attracted to a cruise now...
