You may have noticed this sassy woman in our side bar. That gloriously-gammed beauty is Ms. Juila Child.
We’re happy to wish all Smithies a very happy Julia Child Day today!
Today, Smith celebrates the passion of Julia, Class of 1934. Author of a dozen cookbooks and host of the long-running PBS television series The French Chef, she is credited with changing the way we think about food in America.
Bon appetit!

normashearers:

Many times I’ve played with an actress who seemed to be separated from me by a plate glass window; there was no contact at all. But Myrna, unlike some actresses that think only of themselves, has the happy faculty of being able to listen while the other fellow says his lines. She has the give and take of acting that brings out the best.

Joan Crawford in “Our Blushing Brides”—one of her first talkies (1930)! Her acting improved! In this clip, she’s a model in a lingerie fashion show. She appears at 1:05. The revealing lingerie is an example of pre-code Hollywood movies—before a stricter rating system was enforced later in the 1930s.

A clip of Joan Crawford and Dorothy Sebastian in “Our Dancing Daughters”, a silent film from 1928, which explores the new spirit of freedom among women of the 1920s. Love the art deco sets and beautiful clothing—a great movie!
