This is a collection of images that are my favorite on tumblr.
I love art, photography, everything vintage (30's-80's but my heart goes to the 40's), pinups, music, the paranormal, spirituality, scifi, tropical islands, red wine, and chocolate. I don't leave home without my red lipstick on and I'm usually wearing black...again.
When Norma Shearer was a real-life Jezebel
Carole Lombard was the hostess of the annual White Mayfair Ball. Gentlemen were insisted to wear white ties and tails and ladies were instructed to wear all white as well. An hour into the party Norma Shearer arrived. Heads turned. ‘Why, that fucking bitch!’ muttered Carole. Norma was wearing a bright Crimson red gown.
‘Daaarrling!’ exclaimed Norma. ‘Thanks so much, Norma darling.’ growled Carole. Norma laughed and made her way among the crowd.
‘Wanna dance?’ said Clark Gable who was amused at Carole’s anger. ‘Did you ever see such a bitch with so much nerve?’ said Carole as she motioned to a giggling Norma. ‘She’s a good kid.’ answered Gable. ‘I go for you, Ma’ he smiled. ‘I go for you too, Pa.’
This week I plan to take a look at the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line.
