'Semi-nude'? Okay...

Carole & Co. Posted by carole_and_co on Jul 10, 2019

When the category is "racy Carole Lombard photos," the first name that should come to mind is William E. Thomas.

In a lot of ways How to Stuff a Wild Bikini (1965) is a typical beach film. It’s got you-couldn’t-do-that-today lady ogling, horny, but ultimately unsuccessful beach boys, cheerful musical outbursts, and a sprinkling of old Hollywood stars that were presumably meant to draw parents to th read more

GlamAmor Posted by on Jul 8, 2019

A little over a week ago, I started my Pre-Code screening series The Style of Sin at the Egyptian Theatre and my first star was Barbara Stanwyck. As we saw while watching Ladies of Leisure (1930) and Baby Face (1933), she was a talented actress from the very beginning of her career. And though read more
