Summer's over and Fall is here. Before getting my next seventies Oscar post up and my Oktober Fest of horror, beer and sausages underway I thought I'd take one last look at summer as we bid it farewell.
Douglas Fairbanks, jr and Joan Crawford enjoy a relaxing (and posed) day on the beach. They met on the set of Our Modern Maidens and were wed on June 3, 1929. Doug was four years her junior and had to lie about his age (he was twenty) to get married. At the time in New York you had to be 21. That charming rake Clark Gable distracted Joan for most of her marriage (this was before he got Loretta Young pregnant) and Joan divorced Doug in 1933.
BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE!
Feeling the financial pinch? Not sure where you can turn? Do you have a gift for re-naming full grown adults against their will? Well you've come to the right place! Just give up and coming actress Lucille Le Sueur a much more common and boring name like Joan Crawford and you could be the lucky winner!
As always, click to enlarge (and read the fine print).
