I just won this photo of Betty Grable on eBay. It's from 1937 (shot by Hurrell), but since she's a 40s actress, I figured it belonged here.

Congrats!

I was at a local antique mall last year and I knew one of the managers and she asked what I liked best out of the whole two story mall and I told her that I liked the case that had all the moviestar photos in it. And she definitely took me off guard and she gave them to me!!!! She asked nothing in return! She just gave them to me because they weren't selling.
So I got a couple photos, I don't really remember who there were cause I haven't looked at them in a while, but I know there was Joan Fontaine and Tyrone Powers and Henry Fonda. She also gave me a couple magazines. One has Ava Gardner. So yeah, I might have to scan those sometime.

just remembered that we had this thread...it gives me the chance to finally post pictures of one of my alltime favourite actresses:silvana mangano,who became famous at the end of the 40s with riso amaro/bitter rise.she later escaped the sex symbol image successfully and became one of the most sophisticated and elegant actresses that ever graced the screen,working with some of the most important european directors,visconti and pasolini. riso amaro is a great film too, in the tradition of neorealism,yet not as gripping as the more famous and important films like roma citta aperta by rossellini or ladri di biciclette by de sica.








source:le belle donne del cinema-thereīs no date of publication but since it mentions riso amaro and il lupe della sila as her latest films,which are both from 1949 i īm quite sure the magazine was published that year too.

from riso amaro:

and another great european actress,michele morgan,who became famous at the end of the 30s with with jean gabin in le quai des brumes.enigmatic and wise beyond her years she reminds me of lauren bacall a bit.she often gets compared to greta garbo though.....she was also the one who made the trenchcoat fashionable again.i have an old french magazine from the 50s about her life and her carreer.maybe iīll post some scans later....first i have to find it !

only recently i saw a documentary about her..she is 88 or 89 years old now and she aged so well.staying true to her face and its aging and looking like a grande dame,exquisitely elgegant.itīs good to see that there are famous women (often french actresses)who allow themselves to age with all that belongs to it.i īd rather look at a totally wrinkled face instead of a mask.audrey hepburn had many wrinkles and she still looked more lovely and beautiful than most younger women.or jeanne moreau-no wrinkle can destroy the magic and expression of this face.
what am i talking about....doesnīt fit in here at all,sorry,back to the topic.in general iīm not a huge fan of the fourties as a decade.after all half if this century was wasted with a horrible war.the fashion doesnīt do mcuh for me either.but there were born quite interesting new movements in films-film noir for example or the italian neorealism-and the result were a lot of fascinating films-roma citta aperta-rossellini,ossessione-visconti,ladri di bicilette -de sica or les enfants du paradis and in hollywood to be or not to be,the third man,the maltese falcon,to have and have not,the big sleep,double indemnity,woman in the window,scarlet street,sorry wrong number,the blue dahlia or the hitchcock films rebecca,suspicion and notorious...and only recently discovered thanks to the olivia de havilland thread now also belonging to my favourites from that decade the snake pit...the list could go on and on....and i forgot,the lost weekend....i canīt think of a filom htat would have shown alcoholism more realistic and gripping as this film did...perhaps films became more realistic becuase they were often filmed in the face of war,death,poverty,loss etc...many strong women emerged too.they had learned to live without their husbands who were fighting in the war.they worked and grew independent.barbara stanwyck,bette davis and joan crawford portrayed such women...and there were others,young ,beautiful and able to ruin every man,rita hayworth,veronica lake,lauren bacall....so after all,i still donīt like the 40s ,regarding fashion for example, not at all,but oh my goodness,this decade was the cradle for so many great,great films...
and now a little tribute to michele morgan ,sometimes called the french garbo.i just love her trademark trenchcoat with a beret...itīs so timeless..unfortunatly again (as usual) the quality of the scans isnīt the best,which is also the fault of the magazine ,which was printed on cheap paper and has faded with the years:
other sources :kinostars-engelmeier ; leading ladies (orbis)













thatīs the look which made her famous.i wish they had used a bigger and better picture in the magazine.this is the only pic which shows her with her trench and beret


i front of her bungalow in hollywood


"a return to america ; michele morgan is the ambassador of french fashion"

hmm,perhaps people share the same opinion with me regarding the 40s.regarding fashion, and also society in general.there was a lot of falsitiy in many respects...but there were also rossellini,anna magnani,,lauren bacall,die sica,visconti,preminger,welles etc.

one of the actresses from that decade i admire is italian actress alida valli.her best role and my favoutrite also was probalby in antoinioniīs il grido,but that was later in the 50s.
the 40s showed her in a film like thatz rose up like thunderstorm -the third man.the paradine case,also a good film ,and great perfornmance by her as far as i remember....didnīt she betray gregory peck and everybody else`???anyway.beautiful and talented actress who shouldnīt be forgotten.
