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.

David Cassidy, Heartthrob
And ‘Partridge Family’ Star, Is Dead at 67

        David Cassidy, the actor and teen heartthrob best known for his role as the musician with the green eyes and the feathered haircut on the 1970s television sitcom “The Partridge Family,” died on Tuesday at a hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He was 67.

Today's Top 5

One of the first movies I remember seeing

was "Oklahoma" when I was 6. I was frightened out of my mind by the surrealistic dancing scene in it. Stairs to nowhere!

As far as David is concerned, I was on my first tour of duty in Germany when the "Partridge Family" first came out, and when I came back it was already 1972. I watched it a couple of times out of curiosity but the music wasn't what I was into at the time. I always feel old and vulnerable when people younger than me don't make it. David would have been 10 or 11 in this picture; he was always a small guy.
