Isn’t this the most gorgeous photograph? I don’t remember looking quite that beautiful and serene when I had a newborn baby, but then I’m no Liz Taylor! The photo is of Taylor and her husband Mike Todd with baby Liza from who was born in August 1957. Within six months Mike Todd was killed in a plane crash in his private plane Lucky Liz.
A very impressive man-pyramid from the 1940s. Acrobats never cease to amaze me with what they can do with their bodies, just wow! This photo was taken in the 1940s (some towards the end of just after the Second World War) in Egypt.
Oh what I crush I had on Rex Harrison… Here he is photographed with his wife, German actress Lilli Palmer in 1950. I like the way this photo has been composed, the way she’s lost in her own little world and he’s gazing adoringly at her from the background. Having said that he was married six times and had numerous affairs, so perhaps they just caught him in one of the brief moments in which he adored her…? Or is that a little unfair?
Love yourself first and everything else falls into line. You really have to love yourself to get anything done in this world.
The photo of Lucille Ball (above) was taken around 1934.
A girl standing on tip toe on a champagne bottle in a pleated costume and top hat from 1904. Is this even possible? My balance is absolutely terrible so it certainly seems impossible to me. Do you think this is a trick photo or just some acrobatic brilliance..?
After a childhood spent watching My Fair Lady over and over again I almost find it a bit shocking to see a photo of Rex Harrison not only getting a bit up close and personal, but with another woman! Perhaps I loved that movie a bit too much… but in my eyes Audrey Hepburn is the only one for Rex HArrison
Anway, this is a photo from the movie The Reluctant Debutante from 1958 with (from the left) Kay Kendall, Rex Harrison, John Saxon et Sandra Dee.
