August 07, 1963. This movie starred Hayley Mills, Burl Ives, Dorothy McGuire, Deborah Walley, Eddie Hodges and Una Merkel. From my movie guide, "Disney rehash of MOTHER CAREY'S CHICKENS has McGuire as widow who raises family on a shoestring in rambling Maine house. Burl Ives sings The Ugly Bug Ball. Pleasant but forgettable." I have never seen this movie. SUMMER MAGIC was directed by James Neilson.
1935. "Paper Doll Cutouts of Famous Motion Picture Stars For The Children. Latest Fashions From The Movie Capital For Particular Women." "Picked from the ranks of Broadway musical stars, Irene Dunne was first featured in straight dramatic pictures before producers brought her lovely voice to movie audiences. Her screen success was assured after "Cimarron", a dramatic western story, and in recent months her lovely voice has been acclaimed by millions who saw and heard her in "Sweet Adeline". Miss Dunne continues to reign as the queen of musical romance and co-starred with Ginger Rogers, she is featured in "Roberta", RKO-Radios film version of the Broadway play of the same name. The story is centered in a Parisian style salon and more than one hundred beautiful gowns compose the wardrobe. Some of them are shown here with Miss Dunne as the lucky paper doll to wear them."
Fashion Notes: 1- A luxurious pink crepe slip, trimmed with Alencon lace. 2- A simple street frock of dark green pique, with white stand-up lapel collar of the same material. 3- An afternoon ensemble of beige wool crepe with high roll collar. The sleeves are trimmed with mink. 4- This distinctive evening gown is of gold metallic cloth. A bond of metallic material crosses the top of the deeply slashed bodice and carries over the shoulders with floor-length fringe of tiny gold beads. 5- A frock of sheer navy blue crepe for daytime wear. Note the novel collar and corded trim at belt and cuffs. 6- A wedding gown of heavy white satin, distinctly new, trimmed with large bow at neck, and worn with short turban style bridal veil. 7- Here is a Parisian interpretation of dotted blue flat crepe, boldly trimmed with pompom ruffles, the hat to match.
Circa 1904. Entrance to Lawrence Park, Bronxville, N. Y. Postcard. This postcard is from the trunk of my great-grandmother, Mattie Sweatt Deshazo. She was born in Alabama and lived in Alabama and Florida. Where she got all these postcards addressed to a Mrs. Tower in Cohasset, Mass. I do not know. This postcard was published by Photo & Art Postal Card Co. New York City, #14979. The card reads, "Such a poor picture of a very pretty place. This hotel is fine and stands so high that we seem to be way up in the mountains. We are having beautiful drives and are enjoying it very much here. Suppose Mr. Tower & Bess go tomorrow. With love, Edith."
May 28, 1982. Children could get one free admission with each adult paid admission if they colored the above drawing by Walter Lantz and presented it at the Universal Studios Tour box-office. The WOODY WOODPECKER Special, Universal Studios GlamorTram. Sadly, gone are the days of Walter Lantz and Charles Schultz. I cringe when I come across cartoons and animation of today - truly sad indeed!
1900's. D is for Dutch Girl. Not sure if I have already posted this image on my old blog. CHILDREN OF ALL NATIONS appeared in newspapers in the early 1900's, about 1901 - 1906. A fun image for children to color and learn about children from other lands.
