  • Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca for the win!
  • Audrey Hepburn. She just has something...

    Oh, and looking for a picture of her I found this:
    xinsrc_52203033109449371583310.jpg
    Now that is just wrong!
  • Surely someone should be summarly executed for doing that photomanip?
  • Audrey Hepburn, I had entirely forgotten her! Not that I cared much for Breakfast at Tiffanny's though, but hey it's a classic still!

    Regarding that photomanip, but one word is appropriate: BLASPHEMY!
  • I'll bring the stake if you bring the oil and dry wood.
  • Pfft, Audrey Hepburn... Katherine Hepburn was obviously the more interesting actress with that last name:

  • A bit off-topic.... I found this steampunk'ed depiction of Rick's Cafe (Casablanca). By Mr Mike Doscher.

  • Speaking of Audrey Hepburn.....

    Mr Zachary Bascom made this wonderful deco poster for a film festival at George Fox University.
  • Two more feminine--well, female, at least; one can't be so sure about Dietrich perhaps--movie stars from the Golden Era:


    Brigitte Bardot

    Marlene Dietrich

  • That's a nice photograph of Katharine!
  • It's my favorite - and appropriate, I think, for the setting ;)
  • You guys haven't mentioned Jimmy Stewart yet. (sorry, I have no pictures)
  • I don't think I ever saw one of his films...
  • Gregory Peck

  • Oh, my, darlings. Speaking of Audrey brings to mind this brilliant man:

    Rex Harrison!

    And, Dick Van Dyke.

    But the best of all...

    Danny Kaye. Oh, however could you forget Danny Kaye?

  • I only saw Rex Harrison in Cleopatra . . . with: Elizabeth Taylor.

  • Even if you're not a fan of musicals, go watch 'My Fair Lady' with Rex Harrison and Audrey Hepburn. It's fantastic.

    Hmmm, I wasn't particularly fond of it. Perhaps that's because I can't stand movie musicals. I do, however, love the stage variety and will happily go and see them. There's just something about watching musicals on a screen that destroys all my interest in them.
  • I tend to agree. While I do very much like musicals, I normally don't care much for film adaptions of them. There's just something wrong when you're watching a movie and all of the sudden, the actors start to sing!

    I'm afraid I've never seen My Fair Lady, though. It's the film adaptions of Phantom of the Opera and Chicago which I rather disliked -- though Phantom particularly is one of my favorite musicals!
  • I mostly agree with you there. However, some old school, written for screen musicals are great. Singing in the Rain in particular is one of the best movies of all time.
  • Over at the Art Deco Blog, some wonderful photographs of Jazz Age Hollywood stars are available.

  • Another thread necromanced!

    Not exactly to talk about another Golden Era Hollywood movie star, but show you rather that you two can be photographed as one!

    A Mr Roger James has people photographed in classic Hollywood style! And quite stylish they look indeed!

    Can't believe I didn't see this thread before the necromanccery!

    On my bookshelf there is an old book called 'A pictorial History of the talkies' I never paid it any interest until we moved house to the new place and then I discovered it wasn't about Talkie (in southern england) at all! but of the movies and stars from the begining of the talking motion picture!

    My favorite must surey be Errol Flynn. I recently brought five of his films in a boxed set and their still great! He's a film hero of mine!

  • I recently posted a picture of Robert Mitchum in the "Trench Coat" thread. I don't know from which film it is though. Maybe you might be able to identify it?

    Lovely picture BTW! Especially the one of Rita Hayworth is quite gorgeous. Though that photo of Clark Gable makes him look rather evil...
  • My guess is it's 'Baby I don't care' but I could be wrong.

  • Very 1920s indeed! Lovely photographs---though I must admit I've never heard of this Miss Valentine.
