I’m co-hosting the Dorothy Lamour Blogathon with Ruth of Silver Screenings.
Let’s get this party started!
Buster Keaton, one of my favourite creative geniuses, was born on 4 October 1895. I made a little slideshow in honor of his 120th birthday. Enjoy!
Happy 110th birthday to my all-time favourite actress: the incredibly talented, inimitable, hilarious, gorgeous Myrna Loy!
2 August 1905:
On 27th March, 1899, a baby girl was born in the great Midwestern metropolis of Chicago. She grew up to conquer the world, armed with an arsenal of talent, wit, style, unusual beauty, and a staggering amount of well-justified ambition and self-confidence.
The camera loved her. Clothes loved her.
Fans loved her.
We still do.
Five (of the Many) Faces of Gloria
Happy birthday to the one, the only, the superb Gloria Swanson!
Until next time…
