Last of the Lovelies...

For Now...

Veronica Lake...if there was ever any truth to that old adage about "Good things come in small packages", she was it!

This blog can never have too much of Christina!

A vintage still I have of Corinne Calvet

One for Aldous - The sexy, attractive AND beautiful Natalie Wood

Mitzi Kapture of "Silk Stalkings", without a doubt the best cop show EVER!

Helen Hunt, looks like from around the late 80's early 90's?

We can also never have too much Louise Brooks around here!

Every one of these is well-chosen, ArtMan! For me, it's Louise Brooks who rises above the others, beautiful though they are. She had that mysterious, elusive quality which is fascinating in every era. (That, and your pictures of her are gorgeous!)

Aldous said...

I remember the first time I sat up straight and appreciated Nat's charms for the first time. It was in This Property Is Condemned with Robert Redford. She didn't need to strike any contrived poses or lie around in underwear... All she had to do was walk around in a lovely, old-fashioned dress, and wow -- she was very sexy!

Aldous - For me it was "Love with
the Proper Stranger" that truly
made me a Natalie fan for life. i still think's it contain her best acting, plus its got McQueen in it which doesnt hurt!

Ty Margaret, Edler and Blue - glad you all enjoyed the lovelies!

I'm planning to do another Louise Brooks portrait sometime this year. Clara Bow too, its been several years since i drew her.
