The glamour photos alone are something else--I only wish they wre thumbnails for wallpaper. Well, maybe thrice the size would be OK. Barbara Stanwyck looks downright Dietrichian, Ann Sothern is something wild and in the case of Janet Leigh, the mom's cuter than the daughter at a comparable age. A paragon for this sort of post--it raises the bar.

I felt the same way about the movie posters, I only wish they had been scanned wallpaper sized.

Fabulous site crunch, thanks...truly the era of the glamorous sex kitten. And check out the webmistress who seems to take her hobby seriously.

Some of these events look fun!

Very cool. Great studies in portraiture lighting and retro typefaces, too. Thanks, crunchland.

beauuutiful. Also check out Silver Screen Sirens for more shots. As a side note, many of these shots are the work of George Hurrell.
