About the Photos

Our holdings include hundreds of glass and film negatives/transparencies that we've scanned ourselves; in addition, many other photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs) in the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) They are adjusted, restored and reworked by your webmaster in accordance with his aesthetic sensibilities before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here. All of these images (including "derivative works") are protected by copyright laws of the United States and other jurisdictions and may not be sold, reproduced or otherwise used for commercial purposes without permission.

I married Grace Kelly

well, not REALLY, but about 35 years ago I married a young woman who was a dead ringer for Grace Kelly (to my love-freshened eyes, she looked even better). Now along comes this photo, reminding me that 3 years later she divorced me and I ended up with a damned cat. Thanks a bunch, Shorpy!


What a stunning woman. If I had to pick out the five most beautiful women who ever appeared in Hollywood, she would be on the list, along with Julia Roberts, Ingrid Bergman, young Mary Astor, and Natalie Wood.


Perhaps the most classically beautiful woman ever to "grace" the screen - or anything else for that matter. Liz Taylor was more darkly mysterious; Natalie Wood was just prettier; Marilyn Monroe was more joyously sexy. But for just pure, epic beauty, Grace Kelly is a category unto herself. Breathtaking!

Me, Wowww

My kind of kitten. Just saw her Sunday night on TV in "Rear Window" and "To Catch a Thief."

Say What?

Why there are no fireworks in sight.

Frees Frame

A cat in fabric does not always equal the work of Harry Frees.
