I am so delighted to be back blogging after this long hiatus. This initial post will remain short and sweet. One of the biggest changes over the past few years has been the interest I have developed in vintage costume jewelry. Practically every leading lady in the Golden Era wore costume pieces designed by iconic names such as Hattie Carnegie, Joseff and Miriam Haskell. However, I realized that this will be a good post for a later time. With Thanksgiving only two days away, I decided it would be appropriate to share some festive images of film icons related to this holiday. I have a great deal to be thankful for this year and my return to the blogging community is just one of many.
I stumbled upon a rather intriguing article in the December 1931 issue of Photoplay, entitled, “News and Gossip of All the Studios.” Essentially, it is multiple pages of the latest gossip and action taken by some of Hollywood’s notables. While some of the blurbs appear dull or refer to individuals that I know nothing of, others are quite entertaining. I will share a few of them in this post. Enjoy!
When exploring film history and its contributors, it is hard to pick a favorite actor let alone actress. The men and women of classic cinema bring such an array of talents and characteristics to the screen that it is hard to decipher which are the most meaningful. For me, each individual holds a special place in my heart for a very different reason. The following will focus just on the actresses for right now. Otherwise this entry would turn more into a novel than a blog 🙂
