James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich starring in "No Highway in the Sky" (1951). Marlene is so freaking gorgeous in this film. Happy Sunday afternoon! Background "Theodore Honey (James Stewart) os a mathematician charged with discovering what caused the crash of a "Reindeer" airliner. As he travels to investigate, he realizes en route that he's flying on the very same type of airplane. Convinced it will suffer a similar accident, he deliberately sabotages it once it lands, and soon finds himself defending his sanity in an English courtroom. Fortunately, a sympathetic actress (Marlene Dietrich) and a stewardess (Glynis Johns) come to his defense."

Ann-Margret 1963 🌷 “I’ve been single-minded about it and I’ve had to strive to achieve it ever since. Thank heavens, my parents understood my desires and my ambitions and never tried to make me into anything else. It was just the opposite; they helped me in every way they could and this wasn’t always easy. My father is an electrician and although we were never poor, we didn’t have much money to spare for all the singing and dancing lessons I took.” — Ann-Margret #annmargret #actress #singer #dancer #icon #vintage #classic #classichollywood #oldhollywood #photooftheday

"As Lauren, she could be haughty, grand, intimidating – not to us, fellow professionals – but to managers, producers, any who might profit from her presence. I remember a demanded easy chair for her dressing-room – many presented, many rejected, until one from Harrods was finally purchased at great cost, doors and wall part-removed (subsequently rebuilt) for installation – and that too finally rejected. She could be mischievous. As Betty, in rehearsals, she was jokey, generous and always professional. Above all she looked for realism – a real woman, a real situation, not expressionism, circus tricks or any other “ism”. “The truth, Terry. The truth.” Her technique was essentially that of the cinema – detailed, naturalistic, believable. She knew what it was to be a millionairess [as her character in The Visit was] – she wanted to explore revenge. It was a brave performance, against the prevailing fashion, quietly menacing. She used Lauren, but was Betty. She was never late, never dropped a line and seemed impervious to the demands of vanity or stardom. Famously she resisted cosmetic improvement throughout her life. She was not outgoing in the “let’s go to the pub” tradition but cautiously friendly to us all. I remember her laughter. “ — Terry Hands on Lauren Bacall #laurenbacall #actress #icon #vintage #classic #classichollywood #oldhollywood #photooftheday

I’ll never forget visiting Grauman’s Chinese Theatre( now called TCL Chinese Theatre) in Los Angeles during my trip to the West Coast in August 2016. I’ve always been a big fan of Shirley Temple, so it meant a lot to me that I was able to see her hand and footprints at the famous Grauman’s Chinese Theatre. During Shirley’s hand print ceremony a baby tooth fell out, so to take attention away from her face she put her bare feet in the cement. A differ from the norm of celebrities leaving their shoes on for their footprints.

If I’m lucky Sunday’s mean I get to catch up on the things I love. One of those is watching classic films. It’s a love I have shared with my husband and with my kids often. I love introducing them to different types of films and sharing in the magic of movies with them. 🤩 I have been exploring Old Hollywood since I started blogging in 2011. I also share my love for film through my creative content but I wanted an outlet where I could delve into Old Hollywood a little bit more. I created @exploringoldhollywood as an extension to everything I do here on A Vintage Nerd. 🤓 If you love film, Old Hollywood, and classic movies, follow me @exploringoldhollywood 🎞 What do you like to do on your down days? 🧐
