I'm reading a killer, K-I-L-L-E-R book right set in Hollywood in 1918-- I'd planned to review it some time this week and though I've been tearing through the chapters in my off-desk time, I'm still only about halfway through. Zut alors. It may be into next week before I finish it. The brilliance of the novel, however, has me thinking about the blinding passion I have for golden age of the studio system, which in turn had me trawling Etsy and Ebay for keyword "silent movie stars" under memorabilia, which in turn led me to discover these AMAZING psychedelic prints from the late sixties' by Elaine Hanelock. Some are silent, some are talkie...all are excellent.
Let's look at the goods, shall we?
Wallace Beery and Marie Dressler:
You can see the rest of the 10 print set on this live auctioneers site. I love them all!
Well, what do you think? Which one would you most like to have in your home? Are any of these actors or actresses particular favorites of yours? Do you think the sixties'-heavy style of them is attractive or distracting? Let's talk!
That's all for today-- I'll see you kids back here tomorrow!
