Photos were a big part of why I decided to begin offering Classic Movie Daily—and that has mailed out daily since April 7, haven't missed a day (yet). Enough issues have now passed for me to implement phase 2 of my master plan /*insert evil laugh*/ those images are now all output on a new page of the site HERE.
From the site's main navigation you'll find them by hovering over the "Galleries" tab on the menu. The page is titled "Single Photos" and is listed immediately after the four indices (indexes?) of card and collectible galleries.
For now all of the photos appear in a simple linked list format, though time permitting I may look to turn them into a mega-gallery of their own.
Since this little alert is mailing to both Legacy Immortal Ephemera subscribers and Classic Movie Daily subscribers, I should point out that you can change your subscription from one version of the newsletter to another at any time through the "Preferences" button at the top right corner of your email.
But Classic Movie Daily is much more than photos—Legacy subscribers likely noticed the links to my "research posts" in the most recent review to post on the site, The Patent Leather Kid (1927). Daily subscribers received those posts, one about sisters Molly O'Day and Sally O'Neil, the other about boxing legend Jack Dempsey, via email when they were originally posted.
Other features of the Daily have included site announcements, announcements concerning other bloggers and blogathons, sales items and new items listed to my eBay Store, brief book excerpts, coming soon teasers for pending movie reviews, interesting newspaper clippings that I've bumped into during research, and semi-regular birthday posts.
Some highlights that mailed through Classic Movie Daily:

Now I'm not looking to bombard non-Daily subscribers with posts, but I am trying to make sure you know the opportunity exists to be bombarded!
Most of these are shorter bits of content that I keep Google from indexing, so you won't find them that way. As for time sensitive announcements, I don't even include them in the search on the site, so once they mail, they're gone.
Once more, Legacy subscribers see the "Preferences" button at the top right of this email to upgrade to Daily. (PS: The form asks for your name, but I believe you can leave those fields blank).
If you're not sure which edition you're subscribed to, Classic Movie Daily subscribers will see two photos following this post in their email Saturday morning (Henry Fonda, then one including Margaret Sullavan, two stars born on May 16).
If you've just found me through this post and are confused about subscribing, don't be: the Daily version of the newsletter is now the default edition for all Immortal Ephemera subscription forms.
