Richard comes through with three more great pictures:

Chris faxed over three "biopic" shots:  stills from the stories of big band greats Benny Goodman, Gene Krupa, and Glenn Miller.  We also have a film clip featuring a musical number for each still.  The three photos include:

Three new scans prepared by the Doctor today:

  • Joel McCrea

  • Dick Powell and Ruby Keeler in Gold Diggers of 1933

  • Gloria Swanson in the famous bathing scene from Male and Female (1919)—we also have a film clip (hide your eyes, kiddies!).  This photo had severe damage, including spots, scratches, blotches, splotches, glotches, stains, tears, powdery white shmooshes, fingerprints, and even two long poles that someone thoughtfully laid on top of the original photo before copying it—check out the original scan before cleaning to see what we mean (and call us crazy, but...are those large tiles on the shower made out of cardboard?)

St. Nick came early this year with some new scans:

Richard has three more international ladies for us:

Karl trucked over some new images:

Jane resurfaced with some new images by Ziegfeld photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston, including Martha Mansfield, Mary Pickford, Albertina Vitak, and an anonymous Ziegfeld Girl.

We resume with a new face today:  Lloyd Nolan in Johnny Apollo (1940).  He's shown with Charley Grapewin and Marc Lawrence.  This scan was a real challenge—four hours of cleaning up scratches and fingerprints!

F.L. treats us to three more photos of Barbara Stanwyck in Ball of Fire (1941), including two with Gary Cooper.

Richard springs back with four new actresses:

Here's a nifty new photo of Gloria Grahame from Gary at DVD Beaver—check out his fine site for a wealth of movie information!  Many thanks to Sever, who provided some expert touchup work on this picture.
