What Do You Do For Content ...

... when you've got no content? Why, post a picture of Louise Brooks, of course. Here she is with actor Richard Arlen and writer Jim Tully on location in the Jacumba Mountains for the filming of William Wellman's Beggars Of Life. Wish I could remember where it came from ...

I'm taking the rest of the week off but you can always vote in the latest poll (about Greta Garbo) or you can catch up with my 12,000 word, eight-part essay about the Marx Brothers. Okay, I exaggerate—it's 11,885 words. But there are plenty of pictures.

And please add the word "slangsta" to your vocabulary—courtesy of Mister Muleboy who is tapping his foot impatiently.

Funny you should post about Louise. I have been reading through her book over the past week or so. That shooting was awful for Beggars Of Life.

wait for manly cheesecake? There's writer Jim Tully RIGHT THERE! How much more manly and cheesecakey can you get that Jim Tully?

Actors and actresses of that era referred to him as the "Tulinator" -

Would I kid you?
