Silent film great Pola Negri revisits today in a posed shot.  The Polish actress, romanced by Charlie Chaplin and Rudolph Valentino, successfully made the transition to talkies.

Ivan has more Vincent Price for us—this time he's tussling with Glenn Langan in Dragonwyck (1946).

Next, Vladimir sent in a picture of Grace Kelly and Cary Grant in To Catch a Thief (1955).

We're adding a new desktop wallpaper gallery today.  Carrie has handpicked several scans from our site and blended them into beautiful works of art—all 1600 x 1200 pixels in size.  Be sure to check out Carrie's Desktop Wallpapers!

Corrections/attributions for existing pictures:  Working a double shift, Carrie spotted lots of movies to go with our photos.  Here are some of them:

We end with some film clips:

  • Blues in the Night (1941) - harridan Betty Field chews out Priscilla Lane, and then has enough left over for poor Richard Whorf—sit back and enjoy the daffy musical number in the middle of the clip!

  • Humoresque (1946) - Joan Crawford just can't get any quality time with fiddler John Garfield, so she hot foots it to a bar to drown her sorrows

  • Jimmy the Gent (1934) - James Cagney shows off his new office purchases to Bette Davis, who's only interested in him becoming respectable—enjoy his Art Deco furnishings

  • The Merry Widow (1952) - a resplendent Lana Turner makes small talk with Fernando Lamas after his big musical number

  • The Naked Jungle (1954) - Eleanor Parker and Charlton Heston trek through the jungle in this clip prepared by Sever—it's hard to imagine co-explorer William Conrad with that impossibly silly accent, if you remember him as the hardboiled detective Frank Cannon in his 1970's TV series

  • Phffft (1954) - if you tell me we're channeling Marilyn Monroe and Tom Ewell in The Seven Year Itch after viewing this clip, I won't argue.  Kim Novak and Jack Lemmon starred in this romantic comedy which was released a mere seven months before, and has the feel of, the more famous Monroe/Ewell film

  • Princesse Tam Tam (1935) - after a Busby Berkeley-like musical interlude, chanteuse Josephine Baker kicks up her heels in a sizzling dance sequence

  • Quality Street (1927) - Marion Davies and Conrad Nagel dance and romance at an outdoor spring fling—The Belle of San Simeon was one of the most popular and beloved silent film actresses, and it's easy to see why in this charming clip

  • Quo Vadis (1951) - Robert Taylor has the Roman hots for sultry, but innocent, Deborah Kerr as they verbally spar in the courtyard, in this often-filmed costume drama—look for hulking Buddy Baer at the tail end of the clip

  • Why Worry? (1923) - we have two clips from this popular Harold Lloyd film, including the famous sequence where our hero looks for a new pair of shoes

Karl sent us a shot of Fred MacMurray and Barbara Stanwyck in Double Indemnity (1944), for which Sever prepared a new film clip:  it's the intense scene where she hides just a few feet away from Edward G. Robinson, who arrives unexpectedly to yak about the ongoing case.

Richard delivered five sensational international stars to us:
