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.

[Jeanne Coyne was also Stanley Donen's wife from 1948 to 1951; Gwen Verdon was a choreographer for "Singin' in the Rain," in which Jeanne played a chorus girl. - Dave]

Man On Phone

to whomever:

"Bring us some food, Please!"

"The other guy just gave us warm milk and dry bread!"

... with others

At first glance, it appears to be Stanley Donen on the phone and Lucille Ball at far left.

[Yes and no. The lady is Gwen Verdon. - Dave]
