"Take the picture! Take the picture!"

Yes, it's true. I've changed my background again. But I also got ambitious and switched up the fonts, so take that, laziness. I'm really happy with this format, so I think it's safe to say that I'll be keeping this one for much longer than the previous ones. Now, on to the post!

As you can imagine, I've accumulated quite a few photos of classic actors and actresses. If I'm not looking for something for the blog, I'm looking for a background for my computer or my phone, or I'm just bored at work and I decide to hit up Google Images for whatever strikes my fancy.

In lieu of an actual post, I thought I'd just show you all these fantastic photos I found of my favorites behind cameras. We usually see them in front of a camera, so it's nice to see the tables turned in a sense. I hope you all enjoy these as much I do.

My bonnie Kate. I believe this was during the shooting of The African Queen.

Has Ingrid Bergman ever looked more beautiful?

Adorable Jimmy being...well, adorable.

A still of Audrey and Fred from Funny Face.

An early photo of Doris Day.

This is from a shoot Marilyn was doing with her close friend, Milton Greene.

On the set of High Society, the future Princess of Monaco and Ol' Blue Eyes have some fun.

A cool shot of James Dean.

I cheated a little on this one, but I just love Lucy and Desi too much to leave them out.

Audrey again. I'm not sure which film set this was taken on. Maybe The Unforgiven?

I absolutely love this one of my darling Cary.

Grace kidding around again with her leading man, this time Jimmy Stewart, during the shooting of Rear Window.

This might just be my favorite of the bunch. The gorgeous Ginger with her own personal camera on the set of The Gay Divorcee.

A very early snapshot of Bette Davis.

This probably isn't a new one to you all, but I like this photo of Gene Kelly so much. Especially since you can see Vincente Minnelli in the background, and Gene's in one of his costumes from the big "An American in Paris" ballet.

Barbara Bel Geddes? Nope, it's Grace again!

It's not unusual to see Jerry Lewis behind some kind of camera, is it?

The lovely Greg Peck during Roman Holiday.

This has to be one of the more random ones I've found. Tony Curtis takes a shot of Sinatra and Peter Lawford on the set of Sergeants 3.

Another one of Tony, this time with then-wife, the marvelous Janet Leigh.
Okay, this one might be my favorite. Sean Connery shows some skin while Tippi Hedren documents it as they take a break from filming Hitchcock's Marnie.

With love,


  1. Thanks for sharing all these great photo's - I especially love the last shot of Connery and Hedren ...lol.
