Stanley Kubrick with his sister Barbara Kubrick,
I suffer from that syndrome where your neutral expression makes it look like you’re a angry serial killer
As I left the bank today, a cute girl casually smiled at me. Either she thought I was rich or there was someone behind me….
1920’s Kuppenheimer ads (?)
New obsession: Coles Phillips. Here are some of my favourites of his magazine covers. Be lucky that I’m limited to 10 photos per post because there’d be a lot more. Holy crap, I love him.
Ingrid Bergman's first technicolour screen test in 1938.
Looking amazing without makeup under harsh Technicolor lights.

Looking across the street towards various structures above the northern end of the Hill Street Tunnel. On the right is a boardinghouse, located at 215 N. Hill Street, which appeared in the 1949 film, Criss Cross. A small sign to the left of the front door (right of center) reads, “Furnished Singles House Keeping.” Small apartments and glimpses of boardinghouses are seen on the left. Date given in the archive is ca.1958 but the cars tell me this is roughly contemporaneous with the film late ‘40’s.

Hm… gotta make a better transfer of this reel too. Looks like a 1950’s kinescope.
Here’s a quick little something - Kirk Alyn gazes at the latest Superman comic. I loved how in the original picture he has this bugeyed “They want me to do what??” look on his face. Gotta admit, it’s a pretty ridiculous cover too… Lois’s baking is so bad, it can actually hurt the man of steel, har-har.
(Full disclosure - I cheated with the comic… got a little too lazy to redraw the cover)
Cornel Wilde as the writer Richard Harland, having just met Ellen Berent, watches her leave the car. The moth contemplates the flame.
Now that’s how you decorate a passenger car….
