Hope you had a great holiday weekend!
I'm back this Tuesday morning with two brand new galleries on the site.
The first features all 100 cards from the De Beukelaer series numbered 1001-1100.
While the page does feature new sales listings our sample teaser has already sold:
How could it not?
But key cards such as Judy Garland and The Marx Brothers remain available as of this writing, plus another 80 or so remaining cards.
And, of course, you can view the entire set of 100 inside the brand new gallery featured on the page HERE.
Gallery number two is actually series number two of the three series of Cinema Stars issued by Richard Lloyd & Sons in the mid-1930s.
Just 27 cards in this set, but the gallery does picture the front and back of each of every one of them.
Since she's included twice, I'll go with Norma Shearer as my lure for you on this one:
I've also posted sales listings for the Lloyd's set. As of this writing all 27 singles are still available.
You can purchase or just take a gander at them all on THIS page.
My June copy of TCM's Now Playing Guide is here and already so tattered and marked up that you'd think the month had come and gone. I'll be sharing my notes within a few days in my TCM preview for June.
I'm taking part in the Barbara Stanwyck Blogathon being hosted by Aubyn at The Girl with the White Parasol in July:
As usual, I'm late to the party, so I had to dig a little deeper into the Stanwyck filmography. Was happy to be able to grab a pre-Code and will be writing about Gambling Lady (1934) for the Blogathon.
By the way, if you're looking for some good reading right now, then don't miss the few dozen new posts born of Comet Over Hollywood's Children in Films Blogathon from this past weekend:
As for new reading material courtesy of my site, I am hoping to post about The Lost Squadron (1932) sometime soon. I had originally planned it as a Memorial Day post, but the timing just didn't happen. Still, I'd hate to waste the notes I've gathered so far, so look for something later this week.
Not sure what will come first, my June preview or The Lost Squadron, but that's when I'll next be in touch!
Have a great week, Cliff
