Hey Fernando!!!

Wow, you have movie star looks...
If Chile has a movie industry, you better apply right now, as they're missing a potential Errol Flynn or Tyrone Power.

Better yet, hike yourself up to Hollywood and declare, "Here I am!!"....
If Fernando Lamas, Ricardo Montalban & Cesar Romero could make it there, so could you....

Thanks for the interesting shots. Also, thanks for all the hard work you do on your Spotlights. I may not always says so but I appreciate your contribution.

:shock: Wow Mongo! What a wide variety of candids. All very interesting. Keep 'em coming!

Larry and Judith, all I can say is :oops: ... thanks for being so nice.

W O W ! :shock:
Great candids, Mongo!
How enlightening to see Carole on the couch at home - never caught that angle in her films, and doesn't she resemble a certain Italian-American rock star from Michigan, hmmmm? :roll:
How sad to see Frances F, once again gripped by those inescapable furies!
How funny to peep Chuck Heston's unflatteringly candid glutes! :lol: ! Not sure when I'm checking-off the planet (this 1, or of the Apes) but I'd bet if you cranked my clock back 40 years, my derriere would still be lookin' better than that NRA turkey roll! Buh-kark!
How cool to catch those dagger-eyes from Senora Loren at Mariska's mom's mamms! I've seen the shot that followed that one, with them both sitting at that table, and Sophia was still giving unplain Jayne the old frigidare-glare!
How strange & thrilling to see actual evidence of the oft-rumored deleted scenes from Indemnity! Man, that means that they'd planned to push on past the whole "bleeding-out" finale, where McMurray's voice-over goes real-time. What a bizarrely dark ending the other would have been! :shock: :!:

Thank you Chris and Fernando. There are oodles more to come.

And Klondike, I appreciated your comments regarding a variety of the images. The Charlton Heston quip was a hoot (may he rest in peace).

What a sweet photo of Rita and Rebecca. It reminds me of what Jack Lemmon once said about the relationship Rita had with her daughters:
    "It's heartwarming to see Rita with those two kids. I spent a couple of afternoons with the three of them in Rita's flat in Mayfair, and I've never seen a warmer, nicer mother/daughter relationship anywhere."

I love that shot of Mermaid Blythe too. I've been reading Peabody's Mermaid by Guy and Constance Jones these past few days, and thought it was quite funny to run into a photo from the film.

Wow!

Whenever I think of Robert Mitchum, that's exactly how I picture him. Yeah, uh-huh.

Is that the behavior Hitchcock was referring to when he said actors should be treated like (or was it "as"?) cattle?

I also like the Robert Mitchum photo. It makes for an interesting contrast with Night of the Hunter.

I also like the Gene Tierney pic. What a gal. I still don't get how Oleg Cassini got her though.

Eye of the beholder, for sure, Klonny, 'cause I can't see anything unflattering about Chuck's booty from where I'm sitting. I prefer a man with some corporeal substance. As long as he checked his politics at the door, he could have parked that thing on the edge of my bed whenever he liked.

These are really good pictures, there is a bit of real life instead of the glamourized god/goddess photos -not that I mind those either. Thanks for posting them!

And Fernando, I wondered if that was you. You do look a bit like a movie star. :)

I'm with ya in concept there, Darlin': Just t'other day, I was holding forth to my son Morgan (26 yr old, 5 mos. a husband, 5 wks a dad), about how ravishing a beauty jazz-singer Diana Krall is, as he shrugged his disagreement, when I happened to flip past a current magazine photo of Angelica Huston; showing him her pic, I exclaimed something to the effect: "And man, there's a dame who's really holding-up!!"
His bemused, delayed response: "Pop, you are trippin'!"
Ah well, by the time he's 30, he'll be amazed at what I've learnt in just 4 years!

P.S: Didn't you & I originally meet a couple years ago in a discussion of the overlooked beauty of Ina Balin?!

Hey, I'm not trying to hijack this, but it just occurred to me: I think Klonnie should post a photo of his own derriere, so Judith and I can compare glutes, and then come to a fair decision..... :lol: :lol: :lol: So far, with no FIRM evidence, Ol' Chuck is doing ok by me! :oops: :oops: :oops: :lol: :lol: :lol:


Joe, the pictures are great. It really is nice to see our stars in casual settings. Of course, poor old Bela and Frances might wish those pictures had never seen the light of day.
