Weird Wednesday: The Birth of the Vanity Mirror


[Source: Modern Mechanix; February 1933]






I knew there was something missing from my car.  Who knew it was a mirror in the dash ?  Apparently this 1933 article is way ahead of its time because vanity mirrors are in every car these days.  I like how they brought up the safety aspect.  Maybe I'll have to think about my "vanity" mirror differently.

Madame Sylvia Loves Cold Baths

It's Cold Baths Only for Madame Sylvia



Don't take a hot bath - "It is a cold bath that is resting."




Only take baths in cold or lukewarm water




Cold baths are therapeutic and combat insomnia




Cold baths are an astringent and tighten your skin




After your bath, take a rough towel or glove and rub yourself vigorously for 10 minutes

Least Favorite Actresses Part 2

Least Favorite Actresses - Part 2


Shirley MacLaine


Jean Simmons


Jennifer Jones


Betsy Drake


Jayne Mansfield


Mamie Van Doran


Marie Wilson



Some I just find annoying like Betsy Drake, some just don't seem to have enough fire in them like Jennifer Jones, and apparently I don't like the dumb blond persona of Jayne, Mamie, and Marie.


Up next - I'll pick on the men.
