Plus, as the back of this vintage photo of Iris Adrian reads, “You can come down our chimney anytime, Iris, and no need to wait for Christmas.”
Not to mention that the wreaths that Ida Lupino is shopping for are so fake, they are neither perishable nor time-sensitive. Don’t you just love the idea of a glamorous movie star wearing a fab hat and a mink coat while shopping for kitsch?
I have this thing now where whenever an ad tells me to do something, I turn it around and tell them to do it. For example, when the commercial announcer says, “Right now, you can get 0% financing,” I reply — yes, out loud, with “No, you get 0% financing!” Hubby swears it never gets old. Heh.

a vintage 1935 photograph from Fox Film Corp’s “George White’s Scandals of 1935.” An art deco musical revue that captures the wild revels of the burlesque / vaudeville acts championed by George White, this features a scandoll (identified as Peggy Mosely) showing off her rare bird fashions in a gorgeous art deco gown.

Typewritten press snipe on verso reads “INEZ COURTNEY? featured in First National’s Loose Ankles and Spring is here does right by her art and poses in an airplane hat. And do you still wonder if the movie actresses earn their money?” Measures 8″ x 10″ and stamped on verso with Culver Pictures archive information.

It’s the look on her face that says volumes. Does Ruth really love these dolls? I don’t think so. …Or maybe Ruth just isn’t my friend. Another page from a 1930 Billy & Ruth catalog.
Another page of toys from the 1930 Billy & Ruth catalog, sadly sans police car.
