I picked up these cards at an estate sale today because the kitty was cute. But the more I look them... they look a little evil. 😈😳

Debbie Reynolds, A Kiss Or Two in “Hit the Deck”, 1955 ———————————————————————— Debbie Reynolds regularly appeared in movie musicals during the 1950s and had several hit records during the period. Her song “Aba Daba Honeymoon” (featured in the film Two Weeks with Love (1950) as a duet with Carleton Carpenter) was a top-three hit in 1951. Her recording of the song “Tammy” (1957; from Tammy and the Bachelor), earned her a gold record, and was the best-selling single by a female vocalist in 1957. It was number one for five weeks on the Billboard pop charts. In the movie (the first of the Tammy film series), she co-starred with Leslie Nielsen.———————————————————————— #oldhollywood #vintage #blondebombshell #classichollywood #legend  #moviestar #hollywoodstar #marilynmonroe #hollywoodgreats #40s #silverscreen #goldenage #goldenageofhollywood #elizabethtaylor #oldmovies #retro #actress #history #fashionhistory #ritahayworth #50s #hitthedeck #debbiereynolds #musical #musicals #dance

Ritchie Valens and Jackie Wilson in the 50's!  Unfortunately there's not much info I could find on this photo,  but according to classicpopicons.com, in the 8 months of Ritchie Valens' career before his tragic death just before his 18th birthday, in addition to his appearances on tv and in a movie, he had live performances on bills featuring the likes of Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, the Everly Brothers, Jackie Wilson, Dion and Buddy Holly.

During my research, I found this interesting quote from Bob Davis that wonderfully sums up this pic:
"During the 1950's Rock n' Roll itself became a force for integration of the races and it was the music bringing people together.
That picture of Jackie Wilson and Richie Valens really says a thousand words in it's simplicity, doesn't it?"

Mówili jej... Powiedzieli jej, że sukienkę ma za krótką. Że prześwituje jej koszulka. Że nie powinna tyle pokazywać. Że widać jej piersi w obcisłym staniku. Że należy przykryć ramiona. Że za dużo odkryła. Sugerowali, by była bardziej seksowna. Że facetom to się podoba. Że szpilki mogłyby być wyższe. 
Że w tej bluzce nie widać tak brzucha. Że sama się prosi.

Ale ona i tak włożyła, co chciała.

Just looking through my old pictures, I stumbled across this one. It's a #throwback to December 2011 #onset for a #brotherindustries #commercial. I loved the #50s setting and clothes. And I did love and still do that #haircolor, even though it was just a #wig, like you can easily see in the third #behindthescenes picture. Sometimes, I really do miss #acting! ❤

Audrey Hepburn photographed with her pet fawn, Pippin, at Gelson’s supermarket, Beverly Hills c. 1958.
-
In 1958, Audrey was shooting the film Green Mansions. In the film, Audrey plays Rima, a girl living in the Venezuelan jungle. Her character is really connected with nature, and a fawn follows her everywhere. The animals trainer suggested that Audrey take Pippin home with her to get to know each other. The actress nicknamed her ‘Ip’ and started taking care of her. For example, she mixed pabulum and milk and fed her with a baby bottle, and also slept in a bathtub made specially to accommodate its long legs and lithe body. Soon, the animal was following her everywhere. As the deer grew bigger, it was clear they had formed a relationship that would be remembered far longer than the film. Pippin would go everywhere with Audrey, reportedly causing Mr. Famous, her pet Yorkshire Terrier, to become jealous!

Some birthday dancing for my love. The boy who woke up at 6am this morning what he never does and since then he doesn’t leave his little big bus that he got today. The boy who loves the move of the candles more than blowing them out. The boy who loves to change the diapers of his doll. The boy who loves to play with his trains and cars. The boy who cannot leave the house without two cars in his hands. The boy who loves to paint the walls. The boy who loves to play with mummy’s make up. The boy who loves to imitate daddy’s morning routine. The boy who loves Aladdin, Peter Pan and Vaiana. The boy who loves to dance and sing with me. The boy who is so curious and brave that I really believe his power can reach everything! The boy who is so friendly to everyone, every friend, every stranger, always a sun. The boy who changes atmospheres of whole trains. The boy who knows exactly what he wants to - but who is also so empathic that I cannot describe with words how proud I am. The boy who changed me, who transformed me. The boy who made my heart that big that I think every day it will burst. The boy who teached me that hearts are ballons that never burst. Happy birthday, Adam! I love you!

In the film, much was made of whether Charisse is too tall for Astaire. This was also true in real life. In the sequence, Astaire wore a hat to offset and hide their height difference.
