This graphic covers the plates from cars in films from 1964 to 2008. I’m not really a gear head, but I would have preferred photos to the illustrations myself. Via.
A vintage 8 x 10 inch glossy of Joyce Blanche Murray dressed as a bat — if bats actually have or wear images of themselves on themselves. Oh, and if you think it’s too early for the Halloween costumes, there’s no mention of that holiday. After all, this was Hollywood — and this is Kitschy Kitschy Coo. Rules don’t apply.
Press snipe on verso reads:
PERFECT PROFILE AND DANCING FEET
These are the two things that won for pretty Joyce Blanche Murray a long term contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures. Not only is Miss Murray a lovely person, but she holds the world’s endurance record for toe-dancing, almost 17 minutes. She has also stood on her toes for as long as 45 minutes. While doing a dance part in the sensational M.G.M. film, “The Broadway Melody”, she did the “triple-wing,” the “web-foot wing” and the “fast raffle,” the first time these dances have ever been done on the toes. The world-famous dancing instructor, Kosloff, calls her “Joyce of the iron Toes.” And rightly is she named.
I know we’re not really due for another Dames & Dogs post, but this is pretty special! The fabulous “people look like their dogs” bits from Disney’s 101 Dalmatians. Via.
Poor deluded Mary. Via.
And hats were like crazy! Via.
Chris Noel and what may be a Yorkie? Noel was an actress in Get Yourself A College Girl. The seller of this vintage photo, Grapefruit Moon, says she “became a worldwide sensation as an Armed Forces radio personality, here she shows of her risque glamour with her dog companion in publicity for “Get Yourself a College Girl.” After Vietnam, she became a strong advocate for soldiers, particularly those suffering from PTSD at a time when it was still an unexplored phenomenon.”
