I'm not ready for my closeup! Part 4

It's time to take another behind the scenes look at the fabulous stars and how they spent their time on the set between filming.

Red Skelton and Ann Miller studying lines for "Texas Carnival" 1951

Ann Sheridan using her down time to knit and chat

Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman on the set of "Indiscreet" having a laugh

Betty Grable and her perfect legs having her hair done

Claire Trevor on the set of "Honky Tonk" 1941

Marion Davies reading one of her many fan letters

 Marlene Dietrich going over her lines for "Angel" 1937 with director Ernst Lubitsch

Ella Raines getting in to costume for "The Suspect" 1944

Gene Autry having a quick meal on set

Ginger Rogers having some fun on the studio lot while in costume for "The Major and the Minor" (thank you Cfb)

Lana Turner having her hair done for "The Three Musketeers" 1948

Marilyn Monroe with Billy Wilder on the set of "Some Like It Hot"

Thanks for joining me for another post.  See you soon!


  1. Do you have an bottomless treasure trove of photos? :) BTW, the Ginger Rogers photo is from when she was making "The Major and the Minor."

  2. Great pictures! I'm with Classicfilmboy -- you are a bottomless pit of candid shots!

    Boy, what woman wouldn't want to have Bette Grable's legs?! Or Ann Miller's?! Ella Raines doesn't look too happy (probably because of that awful costume!). Love Cary Grant's natural laugh.

    Love these "close-up" posts!

  3. Classicfilmboy and Becky,
    A woman can never have to many glam photos, fabulous shoes or close friends! haha
    I used to love the glam Hollywood shots for framing with autographs but lately I really love the stars and their candid moments.

    I am looking forward to the upcoming Blogathon coming up on the best actress nominees and the write ups by you two. Such creative writers.
