END OF DAYS
All Good Times must come to an end.


Well, this is it. This is the last image from the Goodtime Weekly calendar of 1963. We’ve shared fifty-two great photos from some of the most famous glamour photographers of yesteryear. Among the subjects were Brigitte Bardot, Sophia Loren, Jayne Mansfield, June Wilkinson, Iris Bristol and many unknowns. Our only regret: we never found out who Freddie Flintstone and He-who Who-he are. This week we have another anonymous photographer and unknown model. Seems fitting.

GLASS DISMISSED
Some see the glass as half full. Some see it as half empty. But if you’re really smart you’re not looking at the glass at all.


Ron Vogel, who has provided quite a few nice images for the Goodtime Weekly Calendar, makes yet another appearance this week with a nice shot of a woman offering a nightcap. We can’t identify the model, which isn’t unusual, but did we ever mention that Vogel himself is a bit of a mystery? The guy contributed an amazing amount to the field of photography, pin-ups, and erotica, but he doesn’t have a website or even a Wikipedia page. Seems a shame. Anyway, we get one more Vogel next week, and it’s a really nice one, so look forward to that. Quips below.

JUST ONE LOOK
Come into my lair, said the spider to the fly.


The hottest days of summer bring some of the sultriest entries of the Goodtime Weekly Calendar of 1963. This week, Ron Vogel presents an unknown model giving what we’d say is a definite come hither stare. The quips are back to where they started—with basic observations about men and women, including one from Alex Dreier. An interesting fellow, Dreier was a seven time Emmy winning newsman who earned his most lasting fame for using his Chicago newscast in 1956 the slam the city’s bigots. It cost him his job, but put him on the right side of history. His quip doesn’t hold up quite as well, but nobody’s perfect.

Aug 4: “The trouble with doing nothing is that you can’t stop and rest.”—Sam Cowling
 
Aug 5: “A bachelor is a guy who is crazy to marry—but realized it on time.”—Alex Dreier
 
Aug 6: Never argue with a woman; it’s your word against thousands of hers.
 
Aug 7: The tongue of a woman is their sword, and they take care not to let it rust.—Chinese Prov.
 
Aug 8: Men ask for permanent hair but women ask for permanent waves.
 
Aug 9: Joint account: a handy little device that permits your wife to beat you to the draw.
 
Aug 10: Bachelor’s apartment: hi-fidelity in one corner and infidelity in the other.

PETER PRINCIPLES
Gowland takes his camera underwater with perfect results.

This week’s image from the Goodtime Weekly Calendar of 1963 features glamour model Joanne Arnold and was made by Peter Gowland, whose name is probably familiar to all the photographers out there, but perhaps not to everyone else. Gowland, the son of actor Gibson Gowland and actress Sylvia Andrew, was not only one of the most famous glamour photographers of the 1950s and 1960s, but he also built highly precise cameras that are still sought after today. These cameras ranged from handheld to studio-sized, and he also built special underwater cameras, one of which we can assume he used in making the image above. Gowland’s work appeared in too many magazines to name, and he shot everyone from Tallulah Bankhead to Muhammad Ali during a career that only ended with his death in 2010. There are several more Gowland images in the Goodtime Calendar—none of which have ever appeared online as far as we know—and they’ll be coming up in due time. Calendar text appears below.

May 12: Mother’s Day. Today a fella can tell his wife truthfully that he’s off to see his best girl.

May 13: “A lot of self-made men should deny it.”—Henry Morgan

May 14: A girl used to get her good looks from her mother; now from the beauty parlor.
 
May 15: Parents used to worry when their teenagers were out driving—now it’s their parking.
 
May 16: “In Hollywood many a girl carries a torch for a man… she doesn’t trust him in the dark.”—Peggie Castle
 
May 17: “We doubt that swimming is good for the figure. Ever take a good look at the whale?”—Alex Dreier
 
May 18: “A deep sea diver got a message: ‘Come up quickly—the ship is sinking!”—Simmy Bow

1957—Arthur Miller Convicted of Contempt of Congress
Award-winning American playwright Arthur Miller, the husband of movie star Marilyn Monroe, is convicted of contempt of Congress when he refuses to reveal the names of political associates to the House Un-American Activities Committee. The conviction would later be overturned, but HUAC persecution against American citizens continues until the committee is finally dissolved in 1975.

1914—Aquitania Sets Sail
The Cunard liner RMS Aquitania, at 45,647 tons, sets sails on her maiden voyage from Liverpool, England to New York City. At the time she is the largest ocean liner on the seas. During a thirty-six year career the ship serves as both a passenger liner and military ship in both World Wars before being retired and scrapped in 1950.

1914—RMS Empress Sinks
Canadian Pacific Steamships' 570 foot ocean liner Empress of Ireland is struck amidships by a Norwegian coal freighter and sinks in the Gulf of St. Lawrence with the loss of 1,024 lives. Submerged in 130 feet of water, the ship is so easily accessible to treasure hunters who removed valuables and bodies from the wreck that the Canadian government finally passes a law in 1998 restricting access.
