About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Lunch With Lana: 1951

Great name for a movie sequel?

The Milkman Always Pours Twice.

Dogpatch hats

When our kids were young, we went to Dogpatch USA Amusement Park and all four of our kids bought hats like this. Pretty cheesy for glamorous Lana.

Image is all, after all.

The cork tip on that Herbert Tarryton kept the paper from sticking to her lip and, as everyone knows, it is better to look good than to feel good.

Bamboo handbag

Probably going to be replicated any day now. RETRO!

Waiting for Hedda

As soon as Hedda Hopper shows up she'll jump in the pool and pretend to be drowning, then Ricky Ricardo will jump in and save her.

Fire hazard

Watch out!! That hat and matches are not a good combo!

Cigarettes and ... milk?

That's one strange diet. Ditto the "Huck Finn" hat choice. But hey, when you're a movie star ...

Lighting up was not a good idea

Lana died of throat cancer in 1995.
