Thankfully my home didn’t decide to burn down (yet), so I was able to get up 229 pictures for you! This gallery is just miscellaneous pictures from throughout the 1950s, like modeling pictures and candids. You can go straight to the gallery by clicking here, if you’d like.
Next up, someone finally got the 60 second Gap commercial back on You Tube! I’ll always kick myself for not downloading it right away. The sound isn’t quite synched up at the beginning, but I’ll take what I can get right now.
Edit: video has been removed from YouTube
I found a review of the new They All Laughed DVD on USA Today, and they didn’t seem to care about it too much. It rated 2 1/2 stars out of four, and no bonus features are listed. (The only ones I know about so far are a commentary with director Peter Bogdanovich and an interview with him and fellow director/fan Wes Anderson.) You can see their review here, about halfway down the page.
And lastly, Ray-Ban is bringing back some classic shades. The Wayfarers, worn in many classic movies like The Blues Brothers and Breakfast at Tiffany’s, are coming back from the dead, for the price of $129. There’s apparently going to be a pretty big media blitz to stir up more interest in the shades (and to try and get away with their major price inflation), so maybe we’ll see some more use of Audrey in ad campaigns? The most important part of the story is here, but if you want to read more, you’ll have to subscribe to The Wall Street Journal. Lame.
P.S. I’m having trouble deciding what I want to give away in the next contest, so maybe you could help us out! There’s a poll on the contests page, so vote on what you’d like to see given away next. If you want to suggest something that’s not listed, simply click on the “something not listed here” button, then drop us a line saying what you would like to see. We’ll take all suggestions seriously, as long as you don’t suggest us buying the Breakfast at Tiffany’s dress and then giving it away. Don’t you dare!
