Scarlet Witch (as well as one to DC's The Legion of Superheroes.) I had also intended to do one of my favorite DC Comics heroine Black Canary, but never got around to it.
Before we depart the world of superheroines, I have to share this hooty publicity composite featuring Miss Yvonne Craig as the high-kicking Batgirl, who joined the series Batman in its final season (1967-1968.)
Dallas in their old age and then in their prime. This one is Jim Davis, who played feisty patriarch Jock Ewing from 1978-1981 (when he died of cancer.)
Diane McBain (of Parrish, 1961) look like they're carved out of creamy clay.
I don't know if I'll ever get around to a post about The Champ (1979), but this shot of Ricky Schroeder aping his predecessor in the role Jackie Cooper in the 1931 version was sort of interesting.
The Big Valley (1964-1969), starring Miss Barbara Stanwyck and a quartet of good-looking younger talent as her grown children. I recently came upon these magazine cover photos of the gang.
Sometimes I will do a tribute to someone and then later come upon a photo that I wish I'd had to begin with... So without any further ado, I give you a few shots of some men who otherwise have had their day in the sun here previously:
Humpy Dack Rambo, who was a significant childhood crush of mine!
Rex and Rhodes Reason before, but later found this charming photo spread in which several sets of real-life TV actor brothers are on display.
Jeffrey Hunter, who it took me years to discover and then could never forget.
Tab Hunter, in another one of those dreamy types of portraits that no one could pull off today, even if they tried.
Joel McCrea in Bird of Paradise (1932) with Dolores Del Rio.
John Gavin is seen below with a bevy of attractive ladies. Recognize what they have to do with him at all? They are from one of his glossy movies (a major favorite of mine), but shared no scenes with him in the finished product. This is strictly a shot for publicity's sake.
It Happened at Lakewood Manor (1977), at least one of my devoted divers expressed his adoration of Barry Van Dyke. This particular shot of him is a favorite, so I pass it along to you now.
Nicholas Clay (of Excaliber, 1981, and Evil Under the Sun, 1982) in practically anything, but imagine our delight when he popped up in the TV miniseries The Last Days of Pompeii (1984) as a Grecian visitor to the title city.
Burt Reynolds is seen here during Deliverance (1972), sporting his iconic zip-up vest and eye-catching torso full of fur.
That brings me to this shot of Deborah Kerr and Yul Brynner relaxing between takes during The King and I (1956.)
Speaking of, I think I have posted pictures like this before of the long-standing (but now gone) Movieland wax exhibit of The Poseidon Adventure (1972) with its somewhat on-target/somewhat off renditions of the stars. (Not sure where Ernest Borgnine scored that jaunty little kerchief for his neck!)
Miss Dina Merrill. I love the cool, elegant looks she's sporting here. (This, however, remains my all-time favorite photo of Dina!)
This shot below, by the way, is my very favorite portrait of Fawcett. Hair for years!
tribute to Miss A.
photo essay once about the meeting up of some very diverse people, but this shot came too late to make it in. Here, we see the bewigged Phyllis Diller and a purring Eartha Kitt hooking up at some event.
Earthquake (1974.) Note the artfully drawn trickle of blood on Miss Lewis' forehead! One of these days, I must go back over that movie a little bit more, the way I've done a couple of the Airport flicks.
