Today In Hair And Make-Up

With special thanks to Kevilu Productions I offer you this timeless photograph of Hollywood Royalty.™

The Hair. The lipstick. The eyebrows. The fact that Joan walks arm-in-arm with Louis B. Mayer.

It takes my breath away.

At the behest of Kevilu, the other night Dr. Snickerdoodle and I watched the 1959 film "The Best Of Everything" starring several people, the most important of whom was Ms. Crawford.

The "story" follows three career gals who get an apartment together and suffer through success, insanity, drunkenness, crypto-abortion and the awful-awful men of 1959.

It was sort of a pre-Valley of the Dolls.

As a primary source document, "The Best Of Everything" reveals that the final year of the 1950's sucked for the ladies. Even if they are glamorous career gals in the big city.

Girl Power!

(Have you had your Joan Crawford today?)
