Okay.... it's time for the first organized "game" here on Frankly, My Dear! Alright, alright. I know I did the baby picture of Ava last week but.... this is more... organized. Yes. That's the word.
This is a game I used to play with my dad even before I started blogging; I would cut out an Old Hollywood's celebrity's eyes out of a picture and have my dad guess which celebrity it was. Now, I thought it would be fun to bring it to the blog. It is called, of course, "Here's looking at you, kid."
I have two pairs of eyes for you today. One is a woman and the other is a man. Here's the woman:
So, all you have to do is comment with your guesses! You can guess just the guy or the girl or both - it's up to you. All guesses are very much appreciated ;) and I'll reveal the face behind the eyes in a week or so.
Of course, I found another amazing Old Hollywood picture. Yeah, I think I have an obsession.
Lucy and Judy Garland dancing - pretty awesome, hmm???
Also, the random-est tiny thing ticked me off the other day. Me being as random as I am, I think I'll write about it - it has to do with Old Hollywood anyway, and I'm pretty picky about this stuff! So I was reading this book called "Ingenue", which takes place in 1924 and is about flappers and mobsters and all that jazz. In one point in the book this magazine editor says, "...While every other writer gushes about Barbara Stanwyck's newest headband, my magazine's going to be digging deeper..." Of course, I, being a particular about Old Hollywood as I am, found something fishy in this statement. I was all, "What? Stany wasn't a 20's star." I did my research and figured out that Stany was born in 1907 and didn't make her film debut until 1927, as an extra or something, though this book takes place three years before. I rolled my eyes and was all, "WELL, MRS. -INSERT WRITER'S NAME - DO YOUR RESEARCH NEXT TIME!" hmph. It was an awful book, anyway. ;)
Well, I probably wasted your time with that random little bit there, but I get rather protective of Classic Hollywood, you see. Anyway, be sure and leave me your guesses.
Au revior, mon ami :) and happy labor day to those of us in the US!
