I had no idea Louise Brooks had freckles! I just had to post this photo when I saw it on Glamour Daze. As someone who lives with freckles, and loves them, it's fun to see a star display theirs. It just adds another dimension to her I didn't know about.
Betty Blythe (1 September 1893 - 7 April 1972), was quite the silent film star. When the talkies came about, she transitioned to a character actress. With over 160 credits to her name, many not credited, Blythe appears to be another glamorous star which I would love to have seen.
Tamara Geva (17 March 1907 - 9 December 1997) was a Russian ballet dancer, actress, and choreographer. How beautiful is this photograph? While having a short filmography, she did appear in Orchestra Wives (1942) which is readily available on DVD.
I adore pinups, and I think it's fun to see the differences between a model and the finished painting. For the next few days I'm highlighting the model and the subsequent painting from fabulous artist Gil Elvgren.
