Vintage movie star clippings

January 18, 2010

A few months ago at a flea market I found a huge vintage scrapbook with the first 20 pages or so filled with movie clippings of 1940's stars for only $5! I've been meaning to scan them for ages and finally got around to it today. There are 64 photos in all -- mostly Rosalind Russell, Barbara Stanwyck, Robert Taylor and Fred MacMurray -- but I also found other stars on the backs of some of the photos like John Mills (!!!), Irene Dunne, Sterling Hayden and Linda Darnell. I obviously couldn't post all 64 photos here on my blog, but if you're interested I have them all uploaded to my flickr account, in this set. All of them have the "all sizes" option so that you can download the large file.

There was one really special photo in this scrapbook, but it deserves a post all to itself! That will be coming up in half a minute :-D Enjoy!

This is really neat! I wonder if the sellers knew the owner of the scrapbook.

Great find. Especially with that Rosalind Russell autograph.

Oh geez I need to hit a flea market sometime!

Lovely. :)

I have that second photo -- the one of Barbara Stanwyck -- in a Hollywood Album of [some year] I got for a dollar(!) off eBay.

I should really do some scanning, too. :)
