Stewart's Sanctuary

James Stewart at home in, I'm guessing, the 1960's or 1970's?  I have to say I saved the pictures primarily for the books.  I love trying to figure out what was in the libraries of the stars.  It's just too difficult to read the titles on the spines.  If anyone can figure them out, please let me know.

Fashion Friday - Pageant Posers

Miss Junior America Shirley Arrow and Miss America Jacque Mercer getting adjusted during a photo shoot in 1946.  I couldn't find any information on Shirley Arrow, but there is plenty out there about Jacque Mercer.

Ladd as Gatsby

Alan Ladd played Jay Gatsby in the 1949 adaptation of The Great Gatsby.  I haven't seen this particular version, that I recall.  I haven't seen this year's adaptation either.  I just can't bring myself to see a film starring Leonardo DiCaprio.  He is just to swarmy for me.  I have seen the 1973 and the 2000 versions and found them less than impressive.  I just don't know if anyone has the acting chops to bring Gatsby to life.
