HELLO BEAUTIFUL
Without a doubt seeing you is always the best part of my day.


This cute photo shows U.S. actress Joan Blondell, who started her showbiz career in Vaudeville, and later made numerous pre-Code films, including The Public Enemy and Blonde Crazy. It was shot when she was making the 1936 film Stage Struck, in which she starred with her husband Dick Powell.

SYNCHRONIZED SWIMMING
Aquatic quartet finds itself in hot water.


Above, a fun publicity photo made for the 1941 musical comedy Hellzapoppin', beyond doubt one of weirdest and wildest early Hollywood productions, adapted from a musical that ran on Broadway from 1938 to 1941. Basically, the Vaudeville duo of Olsen and Johnson star along with Martha Raye in the tale of a bunch of people sent to hell to be tortured by demons. It would make sense that there are musical numbers in hell, right? We can't visually identify any members of this swimming group, but it was called the Olive Hatch Water Ballet, so let's pretend Hatch is one of the four.

SO FUR SO GOOD
She’s in it to Wynne it.

Here you see Vaudeville, Hollywood, and Broadway actress Wynne Gibson, née Winifred Elaine Gibson, who dropped out of school at age sixteen to become a chorus girl, and appeared in the films If I Had a Million, Double Cross, Mystery Broadcast and fifty others between 1929 and 1956. This shot of her with a couple of dead mammals wrapped around her arms dates from 1934.

A FRIEND IN NEED
What's missing from this picture?


During the early 20th century studio photographs were a fad for those who could afford them. When Australian police were confronted with a missing person, or missing friend, as they were called, they occasionally reprinted those studio photos to make tools for law enforcement, or possibly even for public display. This particular shot shows missing friend Rene Flowers, a vaudeville performer, photographed with a “mascot” identified only as Taylor. The image appeared in Peter Doyle and Caleb Williams' 2007 book City of Shadows: Sydney Police Photographs 1912-1948, and dates from 1929.

History Rewind
The headlines that mattered yesteryear.
December 01
1955—Rosa Parks Sparks Bus Boycott
In the U.S., in Montgomery, Alabama, seamstress Rosa Parks refuses to give her bus seat to a white man and is arrested for violating the city's racial segregation laws, an incident which leads to the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The boycott resulted in a crippling financial deficit for the Montgomery public transit system, because the city's African-American population were the bulk of the system's ridership.

1936—Crystal Palace Gutted by Fire
In London, the landmark structure Crystal Palace, a 900,000 square foot glass and steel exhibition hall erected in 1851, is destroyed by fire. The Palace had been moved once and fallen into disrepair, and at the time of the fire was not in use. Two water towers survived the blaze, but these were later demolished, leaving no remnants of the original structure.
November 29
1963—Warren Commission Formed
U.S. President Lyndon B. Johnson establishes the Warren Commission to investigate the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. However the long report that is finally issued does little to settle questions about the assassination, and today surveys show that only a small minority of Americans agree with the Commission's conclusions.
