  1. Oh hay Winston Churchill...

    Also, is it just me or does Elvis kind of look like Devon Sawa in that photo?? (come on, 90s kids, you know what I'm talking about)

    1. Oh yes, Elvis does look a lot like Devon Sawa. Which is why he looks like such a babe!

    2. I agree, I do see a Devon Sawa in Elvis. And Churchill was quite the looker!

  4. Churchill--before Gallipoli, before the struggles and the criticisms, before the great trial to come. There is a sadness about the eyes, don't you think? As if he knew..or perhaps because to those to whom much is given, much is demanded.

    1. That is a "from those to whom much is given" of course.
      Interesting that Bela Lugosi, at 18, had already a taste for formal evening wear.

  5. These are really neat:) The Hitchcock is funny, I picture him in the womb with that chin!! I'm surprised, however, that he ever got any work done with all that booze hangin' around!!

    1. Is that a copy of "Rebecca" from which the Hitch is lifting a line?
