Summertime in Hollywood

We're heading off for a few days of vacation in the Eastern High Sierras!

While I'm away you can follow my Twitter account for trip photos -- I plan to photograph Tim Holt Street in Lone Pine and the locations of Jacques Tourneur's NIGHTFALL (1957) in Bridgeport, among other things! I'll also be posting trip photos here when I return.

I'll resume regular posting early next week, including a look at TCM in July and a review of the new Warner Archive Blu-ray release of KISMET (1955). In the meantime, here are some wonderful summery shots of classic film stars enjoying the season.

Beautiful Debra Paget ready for a canoe ride:

George Brent cooling off:

Here's lovely Carole Landis poolside:

All-American girl Nancy Olson at the beach:

John Payne surfing:

Barbara Stanwyck ready for the tennis court:

Tyrone Power:

Betty Grable, photographed at the beach for Life Magazine:

Sterling Hayden, who loved sailing:

Robert Taylor and pal ready to go fishing:

And little Margaret O'Brien dipping her toes in the surf:

It's nice to note that Debra Paget, Nancy Olson, and Margaret O'Brien are all still with us today.

For more great photos of classic film stars enjoying the summer sun, please visit last year's posts Summertime in Hollywood and More Summertime in Hollywood.
