A few years ago I saw Candy Clark at a car show, and she autographed a photo for me (for $10). What really surprised me was how young and slender and cute she looked. I see from my Internet searches that she's gained a few pounds since then. You can, of course, get personally autographed pictures of her online, but you don't get to shake her hand. And, yeah, it was the same hand that Hope Lange shook. Lucky hand.
She's still working. She was in Zodiac last year
In the movie Cuba (1979), actress Brooke Adams just
blows away the Starlet Showcase picture categories
with great earrings, great dresses, great smoking,
and great mirrors. Not to mention that scene where
she gets out of the pool all damp. Holy cow! And then

Happy birthday, Shirley.
Georgann Johnson pictures are incredibly rare.
I captured these from two episodes of the
wonderful Alfred Hitchcock Presents TV show
DVD. She has a funny nose. She has a gloriously

a nun last year on TV's Cold Case show, so she's
still putting that wonderful, whispery voice to
good use. She's been in the business 60 years.

From some of the other blogs I read, I know
that there are numerous women who study
pre-Code cinema and silent movies for the
hair styles. And these styles tend to be a lot
shorter and more elaborate than I like. But
then I lean more toward the sexy-lioness-
I know that one of the reasons these ladies
are interested in these old hair styles is that
they're just itching to try them out on their
own heads. Me, I've kinda had a Conrad Veidt
thing going with my hair for about 30 years,
as it's simple, classic, you don't really need
a mirror, you can do it with your fingers,
and you can do it when you're really drunk.
But for you ladies out there who are more
concerned with shorter, more complicated
hair, I offer these beauties. . .
