I have learned I am a valuable person. I have made mistakes- so many mistakes. And will make more. But I pay. They are my own. What was not real in Howard Hawks’ version of me is not real in me now. I remain vulnerable, romantic, and idealistic as I was at fifteen, sitting in a movie theatre, watching, being, Bette Davis.
RIP Lauren Becall [September 16, 1924 - August 12, 2014]

While filming their first film together, His Kind of Woman, Bob and Jane got along like old buddies.  From her stand-in and friend Carmen Cabeen, Russell was already well acquainted with some of Bob’s more depraved antics and she had prepared herself for his “shocking side,” but the fact that he was also so “intellectual, gentle, caring” came as a most pleasant surprise. She would rave about his astounding command of the English language—even as he would tell her she was the most inarticulate girl he knew.  He would tease her about her God-fearing ways, but he understood she was no Loretta Young, wallowing in piety.  He loved to tell the one about the pestering reporter who couldn’t believe a girl with her “image” read the Bible and went to church each Sunday.  “Hey Buddy,” she told him, “Christians have big breasts, too.”  She was good-natured, generous, strong-minded when she had to be, a stand-up guy.  Mitchum nicknamed her “Hard John.”  They became fast friends.  “I think she really adored Bob, loved him deeply, but without any hankypanky.  Because she’s a very straight girl. And he loved her.  It was just a marvelous combination,” commented Vincent Price.
Robert Mitchum said of Jane: “Jane Russell is an authentic original. She is pragmatic in her faith and fanatic in her loyalties. She disdains the weakness of vanity, and guards the truth with moral zeal. She tells it how it is.”

      (2) I am writing to ask your permission to use some photographs uploaded on your homepage. Currently, my team is making a three-part TV documentary, called “Battle of Musical Instrument”, scheduled to broadcast this coming september. It will be mainly about musical instruments from the structure and history of each of them (for instance, how has violin survived as a representative string instrument) to how they make such beautiful sound (theoretical stories) and music together.

      Hello,

      I don’t own any right for the pictures I post on my blog so I guess you’re not asking the right person. All my Glenn Gould and Leonard Bernstein photos are reblogged posts from other blogs. Maybe you should try to ask the runners of these blogs where they got their pictures from (the source of a pic usually appears with the post).

      You’re working on a beautiful project and I’m sorry I can’t help you more. Pictures on tumblr often come from official websites like http://life.time.com/ for instance. I think you must ask them if you want to use any of their photos.

      I hope my answer helped you, even if in a small proportion !

      Best regards !

      P.S: If any of Fantômas’s followers has clearer and more precise informations, feel free to leave a message ;-) !

          Concours de chants ou défilés de miss en robes longues blanches aux environs de 1930 a Deauville ou sur la côté d'azur

          Bonjour,

          Que dois-je faire de ce message ? Choisir une des propositions ? Si c’est ça, j’aurais aimé connaître la Côte d’Azur dans les années 20-30 mais je laisse volontiers celle d’aujourd’hui et dans le cas de Deauville, c’est une garderie pour riches parigots depuis toujours mais la plage est belle. Je chante mal mais avec un bel enthousiasme. SI j’avais eu la chance de défiler dans une robe blanche Madeleine Vionnet, je n’aurais pas dit non.

          Mais encore une fois, pourquoi ce message ?

          Bonne fin de juillet à vous en tout cas :-)
