Great stuff. Would have loved to see her cruising around in that car!

This is a nice spot to be, and it gives great incentive to keep checking the archives.

Sir Seymour Hicks (star of the classic '35 CHRISTMAS CAROL, that inspired the classic '51 CHRISTMAS CAROL) as Ebenezer Scrooge:

Hmmm? It says the photo was taken in Oct. 1949, but Hicks died in April 1949!

Mike, maybe a Tribute, and that's when the pics ran?

They're actually from his earlier Stage turns in the role.

Best,

Could be. "Date Taken" is an odd way of putting it, if that's not what you mean.

I don't think I've seen this link poster here yet. Found it in a random search...
Some great prop shots!

Re: LIFE PHOTOS...The Addams Family starring John Astin and ????

I saw this thread started by Hal Lane over at the CHFB and thought everyone would find this interesting.

http://images.google.com/hosted/life/l?q=Tv+source:life&prev=/images%3Fq%3DTv%2Bsource:life%26ndsp%3D20%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN%26start%3D60%26ie%3DUTF-8&imgurl=898be5281e08df29


These seem to be behind the scenes photos for what looks like The Addams Family casting try outs . I know John Astin was attached to it from the beginning but look at the various actors playing Grandmama, Lurch and Fester. I picked out Sgt. Bilko's Maurice (Doberman) Gosfield and character actor Percy Helton as Fester's. Over at CHFB's thread they picked out John Dierkes, Stanley Adams, Paul Wexler as well.

These are all really GREAT posts! I especially loved the "Dorian Gray" artists - I had always wondered who actually did that painting series -- amazing they were twins (double the talent) very cool to see the life size model they used as well! And what a shocker it was when they threw in that color shot of the portrait in the movie - makes the whole movie!! Would love to have a copy of that LIFE issue if ever possible -- I love the behind the scenes stories.

Those James Cagney Man of a Thousand Faces photos are a real treasure. I have never seen most of those. I especially like the first one where they are stretching the latex appliance over his head. Really cool.

I can't be sure, but that looks like Bud Westmore in the 4th photo applying some makeup-- holding the paintbrush in what I like to call the "Westmore style"  ('Hey Bud, LIFE Magazine is coming' 'What? LIFE? are you kidding?! Alright, outta the way Keevan, and gimme that brush! Now stand over there looking amazed and dumbfounded in this photo!')
