Mary Astor 1920s

Mary Astor, discovered at age 14, was one of the few silent stars who successfully made the transition to talkies. Perhaps best known now for her role in "The Maltese Falcon", she appeared in over 120 films over the course of her career. She was smart and witty (she once said, "There are five stages [...]

Leonardo Gatsby Flowers

Well yes indeed, it is another (probably the last, though who can be sure) post about Baz Luhrmann's film version of The Great Gatsby. We've previously discussed the Gatsby trailer and Tiffany & Co.'s Gatsby jewelry. Last up: this video highlighting the creation of the background and special effects...whether or not you are a fan [...]

Dolores Del Rio || Black Cat

Dolores Del Rio was a silent screen star in the 1920s, a luminous icon of 1930s Hollywood, and then became one of Mexican film's greatest stars.

Well, the trailer for Baz Luhrmann's long-awaited (or long-dreaded, depending on your tastes...) version of The Great Gatsby is here! That is... well, it is interesting. Interestingly scored, interestingly cast... there will certainly be lots to look at, style-wise. The Great Gatsby is a perennial favorite for vintage-wedding inspiration, and there is certainly a lot [...]
