Marilyn Monroe on the love happy tour. Marilyn Monroe goes to the Rickets at the water tower with Roddy McDowall a fellow budding actor for dinner. She went by train to tour the big cities to promote her new movie “Love Happy”. Crossing the country from West-California to East-New York, she makes a stop in Rockford, Illinois, to visit a children's home. She travels to New York, commissioned by Photoplay magazine to participate in the presentation of the "Dream Home" contest organized by Photoplay. Marilyn is joined by fellow actors Don Defore and Lon McAllister, who accompanied her on the train and at the award ceremony in Warrensburg, New York. Marilyn, having heard that in New York it was always much colder than in Los Angeles, was dressed in a black woolen dress. She purchased suits for the travel (3 wool suits which were inadequate to the East heatwave), she bought them at May Company in Los Angeles, the heat was overwhelming as soon as she got off the train. On the spot, Lester Cowan bought her a white cotton dress, bought from a wholesaler in New York, she wore it the rest of the stay. She hands the keys to the house to the winner, Virginia McAllister, accompanied by her baby boy. Then she visits the house which contains all the modern equipment of the time. The photos of the event will appear in the November 1949 edition of Photoplay magazine.
When it comes to your personal life, such as love and romance, girls should take a tip from the men and keep their affairs to themselves. Any man worth his salt regards his private life as his own. To kiss a girl and run and tell would mark him as a cad. Why doesn't that apply to girls also? #carolelombard#oldhollywood

I am setting up a new account! Black and white portraits of Dames Gone By, and black out poetry inspired by them. "Beat the rush!" And go follow @vintageblackie - this one will have occasional posts that will be carefully curated. Sound like your bag? Join me on a monochromatic, poetic mission into the darkness😎
OK here's another one of these digitally colourized edits. I need to stop for a bit before I (and everyone else) gets sick of them😅.
I struggled with this one, and had no clue what colour to do the background set thing. So yeah I just winged it. Her dress is really beautiful though, so I enjoyed that part. One of my fave movie costumes!

One of the holiday’s most cherished films, “Miracle on 34th Street” (1947) is a delight from start to finish. The brilliant cast includes #johnpayne , #maureenohara , #edmundgwenn , and a very young, scene-stealing #nataliewood . Reportedly, Wood, who was only eight, firmly believed that Gwenn was actually Santa Claus and would not be told otherwise. Finally, she had to be carried to his dressing room and see him out of costume before she would believe he was in fact not Kris Kringle himself. It is true, however, that Edmund Gwenn was the ideal Santa Claus. According to costar Maureen O’Hara, “by the time we were halfway through the shoot, we all believed Edmund really was Santa Claus...”. Before the film was released it was predicted to be a success. However, both Gimbels and Macy’s demanded to screen the film first to ensure their company name would be well represented. Luckily, both businesses gave their enthusiastic permission. Gwenn even played Santa Claus in the actual Macy’s Thanksgivings Day Parade in 1946. Edmund Gwenn himself summed up experience on the film when he was honored with the #bestsupportingactor Oscar. In his acceptance speech he exclaimed “Now I know there’s a Santa Claus!” #oldhollywood#miracleon34thstreet#santaclaus#classichollywood#oldmovies#classic#merrychristmas#1940s
