A Couple of Scream Queens

It's Julie Adams, scream queen of The Creature from the Black Lagoon, and Janet Leigh, scream queen from... well, if you don't know you really shouldn't be here, at the November 1951 premiere of Bright Victory in which the talented Adams co-starred. And judging from the look on his face it appears Tony Curtis is achieving victory simply by not collapsing while holding Janet. With Julie is her screenwriting husband Leonard Stern, a man who brought joy to children everywhere and annoyance to parents the world over when he co-invented Mad Libs in 1953. Financially speaking, that was the brightest victory of any of them.
