Brooks' Beauty Marks

Louise Brooks

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.

Beautiful Betty

Betty Blythe; 1920's
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.

Gorgeous Geva

Tamara Geva

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.

Gil's Girls - Part 1

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.  

A Sharp Lookout; 1961
