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.

Power Lunch: 1952

Power Lunch: 1952

February 1952. "Entertainer Gene Kelly with others having coffee." The star and his satellites. From photos by Maurice Terrell for Look magazine. View full size.

Gene married her after Betsy Blair

That looks to be Jeanne Coyne at the far left, rather than Gwen Verdon.

[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]
