(Oh, and http://www.joancrawfordbest.com/images.htm has huge galleries of Joan Crawford photos, including large sections of Hurrell-shot photos)
! cool, thank you for all the links luxury, I ordered hurrell's hollywood portraits, about 4 monthes ago and never received it, amazon.com kept delaying the book. . . but his work is so amazing, I'm going to give it another try, and hopefully they'll send it on schedule .!

I had saved this photo because I liked the piece of jewelry in her hair, but then I found she had a interesting story too....

Thelma Todd: One of the premiere comediannes of her day, she made 115 films during her short career, 1927-1935. She opened "Thelma Todd's Sidewalk Cafe" a nightclub/restaurant that catered to show business people. It also, unfortunately, attracted some shady underworld types as well, and there were rumors that they were trying to take over her club and use it as a gambling establishment in order to fleece the wealthy Hollywood crowd. On December 16, 1935, Thelma was found dead in her car, in her garage, in Los Angeles. Her death was ruled a suicide due to carbon monoxide poisoning. She was only 30 years old. At the time, as today, many felt that her death was actually a murder connected to the goings-on at her club, a theory that was lent credence by the fact that no one who knew her had ever seen her depressed or morose enough to the point of being worried about her committing suicide. Another factor that aroused suspicion was that her death was given a cursory investigation by the--at the time--notoriously corrupt Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office and the case was quickly and unceremoniously closed. Her death has remained a controversial one even to this day.

Carole Lombard was fantastic...she also looked so 'art deco' in her B&W photos.

Some vintage postcards and tobacco cards of the lovely Ms Lombard...

Marian Marsh....(from imdb) One of the early sound era's most attractive young leading ladies, doll-faced Marian Marsh enjoyed a short yet significant film career as the star of several memorable 1930s melodramas opposite some of the cinema's best, most charismatic lead actors.

Lilian Harvey....
(Born in UK to British mother and German father) After many roles in silent films, UFA found great use for her acting, dancing and language skills in many famous light operettas made with the advent of sound. These highly popular films (usually co-starring Willy Fritsch, with whom she became irrevocably associated in the public's mind as the romantic dream-team of the European cinema) were usually made in three different languages at once. The cast would be switched around her for the various takes in German, French and English. Her most successful film, 1931's "Der Kongress Tanzt"/"Le congres s'amuse"/"Congress Dances" led to a contract with 20th Century Fox. She dissolved this contract after a few pictures, returning to UFA to be with director Paul Martin, with whom she was romantically involved. The Nazi regime had come to power in her absence and Lilian Harvey found it difficult to work under Goebbels.
