Weird Wednesday - Alka Seltzer Upsets

Talk about a disturbing ad!  Alka-Seltzer is a great product, but I'm not sure how much of it you could sell by showing someone throwing up.

Marvelous Miller

I adore Ann Miller.  Gorgeous and talented, she was a real Hollywood star.  My favorite Ann Miller movie is On the Town (1949).  So delightful, and a fantastic dancer.

Lovely Louise

Louise Brooks is an icon - no question.  I've only seen one of her films, Pandora's Box.  She is so well thought of, I definitely need to see more of her films.

Daring Dors

I adore Diana Dors.  Often thought as just another blond in the mold of Marilyn, she always seemed so much more to me.  Calculating, talented, and seemingly always up to mischief, I have always thought she had more talent than she was given credit for.

Halloween Hospitality

Halloween; 1948; MNHS

Halloween was one of my favorite holidays as a child.  My sister and I would go trick or treating with our dad.  Since my folks were divorced, this was one of the few days we were with our dad that was pure fun.  We traveled several blocks, and would come back with a pillowcase full of goodies.
