The Sexy Cowgirl Picture Post

Jean Arthur
Generally, I don't like women in hats. You've
heard me say that, right? And, generally speaking,
I don't really like to see women in cowboy hats.
Every once in a while, some corporate country
music star comes to town, and the downtown
streets are filled with drugstore cowboys and
cowgirls pretending that they are not accountants
and secretaries in real estate offices. Anyway,
they generally look silly in their hats and boots.
But I'll make an exception for the ladies in this
post, who somehow make their hats look great.

Claudia Cardinale
Salma Hayek
If you're at all interested, this site is
completely dedicated to cowgirls.
Now git!


Who's Left?

I found this photo at Vintage Photo. It's listed
as a "Marian Carr" photo; she's the delicious
blonde on the right. Actually, it's a group photo
from the 1955 film Kiss Me Deadly.

Then I ran across this Mary Tyler Moore Show
cast photo from the 1970s recently posted at
Stirred, Straight Up, with a Twist.

Weird, no?
Cloris Leachman, like a good wine, got better
with age. (Me, my favorites are on the right
side in both photos.)

Come Together

I found this image at the Art Deco blog. Thought
I'd try something with it in segments. It's harder
than it looks. (Whoa! It worked.)
By the way, this beauty is Corinne Sylvae, "one
of the lovely models at Shubert's A Night in Paris
at the 44th Street Theatre."

In Cat People (1942), Irena ascends the stairway
set from The Magnificent Ambersons (also 1942).

Seminal images, indeed.


Cruising a Fabulous Planet

Assuming you're not homophobic or humorless, go over and visit the Not Safe For Work Fabulon site, where men are men and boys are "house boys," and the ladies are sometimes men, too, but they all seem to be having a good time. And they're funny as, well, heck. They're crazy about hats and shoes and poodles and interior decorating over there. Occasionally, they borrow photos from Starlet Showcase, so they must have good taste. The pictures here are not really representative of the naked dude pictures and high fashion stuff they often show. But it's always a fun place to visit.
(And if you never return, I'll understand.)

Dec 26th - Business As Usual

Another magical Xmas season is done.
Back to our usual agenda of murderous greed
and brutalizing indifference.
