Today we start with a picture of that irrepressible impresario of the stride piano, Thomas "Fats" Waller, in a classic pose from Stormy Weather (1943) - thanks Sever for the ID.  We also have some of his musical numbers.

Richard continues his streak with more gorgeous—but, ultimately, tragic—actresses from the 1940's:

The onslaught of great photos from Gary continues:

Thanks to our guest contributors once again for these beautiful images!

Next, some flickers:

  • Bitter Victory (1958) - Richard Burton callously finishes off an injured German soldier in the desert and then carries a beefy, injured British soldier (Raoul Delfosse) through the blazing sand dunes, until he meets up with Raymond Pellegrin who informs him the soldier he's carrying is dead—thanks to Sever for this dramatic clip

  • The Bride Wore Red (1937) - Franchot Tone is out and about in the mountains delivering a letter, when he runs into heartthrob hiker Joan Crawford—when they stop at his cabin, notice her shoes: who clambers up mountains in those things?

  • The Dark Corner (1946) - Lucille Ball and Mark Stevens are on an intriguing mission

  • The File on Thelma Jordan (1950) - Tipsy civil servant Wendell Corey makes several passes at customer Barbara Stanwyck, and he doesn't realize she's married to a mobster

  • Love With the Proper Stranger (1963) - Natalie Wood surprises Steve McQueen at a union hiring hall with an unexpected announcement

  • The Scarlet Empress (1934) - stunning Marlene Dietrich dresses up, learns her mother has been sent away by the Russian Empress, interrupts the royal conference to complain, and then receives a royal dressing down from...who else?...Louise Dresser!—thanks to Sever for this great clip, which also features some remarkable sets in the royal council room

Three more international beauties arrived via tramp steamer today from Richard:

Frances sent us 8 pictures of Buster Keaton, including one from Cops (1922).  We've also added several of his full-length shorts.

Nick dug down deep to find some unique photos of Chorus Girls, those unsung terpsichoreans behind the musical stars.  Enjoy this set of 14 photos, which represents Footlight Parade (1933), Moonlight and Pretzels (1933), and Rosalie (1937).

Rikke ambled by with a panoply of picturesque pfabulous stuff:

Gary has three new scans for us today:

Kudos once again to our guest contributors!

We end with some film clips:

  • The Facts of Life (1960) - Bob Hope and Lucille Ball plan a romantic tryst, but are caught in a downpour upon arrival at a remote (and leaky) cabin in the forest—fraying their nerves and giving them second thoughts about each other

  • My Little Chickadee (1940) - W.C. Fields creates havoc on a train ride, but ends up married to money-hungry Mae West—also enjoy spinster Margaret Hamilton as she puts up with Fields' shenanigans

  • The Return of the Whistler (1948) - Lénore Aubert wants to return to France, to escape America and her past, but Michael Duane puts a marriage move on her, hoping she'll reconsider

  • Tarzan and His Mate (1934) - the jungle love story continues, with several romantic interludes featuring Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan, as they contend with rogue ivory hunters led by Neil Hamilton

  • Wings (1927) - WWI nurse Clara Bow searches Paris for ace flyer Buddy Rogers to tell him to report to his unit, and finally locates his tipsiness in the Folies Bergere, where he's otherwise occupied with a local dish—also look for Roscoe Karnes at the same table—this film won the first Oscar for Best Film

  • The Wolf Man (1941) - Lon Chaney, Jr. thinks his bad case of lycanthropy has finally subsided...but then discovers he's still in need of a good depilatory, so he naturally winds up in a foggy cemetery late that night and encounters a gravedigger plying his trade—thanks to Sever for this great clip!

Richard has three Spanish-themed photos today:

Gary steps up to the plate again with several new offerings:

Chris was so inspired by Gary's photo from The Bride Wore Red, that she sent in another shot of Joan Crawford from that film.

Gunnar sent in shots of Ralph Bellamy in Ellery Queen, Master Detective (1940), and a posed shot of Natalie Wood.

Be sure to visit Carrie's new blog:  Classic Ramblings.  Here you'll find reviews, recollections, and insights about classic films and their stars.

We continue our series of Our Gang photos.  This time, it's two shots of Farina (Allen Hoskins), cast as one of the earliest of the Little Rascals.  He was with the team from 1922 to mid-1931.

Ivan beamed over two Marx Brothers photos from Go West (1940).  We also added two new film clips to commemorate the occasion:  Groucho ingratiating himself with an Indian maiden, and Harpo wowing the tribe with his...harpistry!

Gunnar continues his march with more high quality images:

Sever came up with three new photos:

Carrie prepared a nice desktop wallpaper of Ginger Rogers.

Next, we have a panoply of great pictures from Gary:

Here's Richard once again, with more stunning photos:

Corrections/attributions for existing pictures:

The nickelodeon is open:

  • The Appaloosa (1966) - All eyes are on Marlon Brando as he rides into a sleepy little town and has a tense tête-à-tête with the local welcoming committee—if you ever wondered about Al Pacino's inspiration for his Scarface character's accent, look no further!

  • The Boogie Man Will Get You (1942) - mad scientist Boris Karloff, assisted by Peter Lorre, descends on a loopy powder puff salesman (Slapsie Maxie Rosenblum), intending to turn him into a superman, in this quirky comedy—Larry Parks and Miss Jeff Donnell appear near the end of the clip

  • Go West Young Man (1936) - Mae West's press agent (Warren William) visits her in her dressing room after one of her performances.

  • Little Caesar (1931) - Sever upgraded our clip of Edward G. Robinson and George E. Stone on the lam from the coppers—nervous Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Glenda Farrell look on with trepidation

  • Live a Little, Love a Little (1968) - Elvis Presley is a hustling, bustling cheesecake photographer (not the food!) who tries to be in two places at once—watch for Don Porter

  • No Man of Her Own (1932) - Carole Lombard steals away to a remote cabin in the woods, only to be interrupted by amorous Clark Gable, and she promptly remembers just why she's so attracted to the big lug

  • The Rainmaker (1956) - Katherine Hepburn wants to find someone to share her life with, and pours out her dreams to brothers Lloyd Bridges and Earl Holliman, while pappy Cameron Prud'Homme looks on

  • Tarzan Escapes (1936) - enjoy the original Jungle Cruise ride in these six clips, as Johnny Weissmuller and Maureen O'Sullivan foil a ruse by her relatives to have her return to England—look for brother/sister team Benita Hume and William Henry, meek (and doomed) Herbert Mundin, dastardly John Buckler (hiss!), and that simian sensation, Cheeta!
