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.

Terrifying

It's amazing how an ordinary passing moment can turn sinister when frozen by the snap of the shutter.

This one is RIPE for harvest!

We shall Feast tonight!!

Sorry,the PR department never should have let this one escape.

Although it does tie in nicely with the roles in the latter half of her career

Holy Smoke!

Judging by that smile, Cloris should switch to filtered cigarettes.

Rictus

The word rictus most often describes a smile that doesn't convey delight or happiness — instead, it's a kind of horrified, involuntary grin.

An expression in which someone shows their teeth in a smile, but looks strange or in pain rather than looking happy and relaxed.
