Bookworm: 1921

Bookworm: 1921

New York circa 1921. "Larrimore." Francine Larrimore, French-born star of stage, screen and library. 5x7 glass negative, G.G. Bain Collection. View full size.

 

Nice mitts

Look at the size 'o those hands! "Excuse me Ms. Larrimore, when you're done with that passage would you mind opening this pickle jar for me?" She must have absolutely dominated international thumb wars back in the day.

What do you call

that piece of furniture that she is reclining on ?? It's too deep/high/big/long/hard/shallow/uncovered to be anything that I'm familiar with.

[It's a daybed. - Dave]

It's Roxy

Francine was the original Roxy in the 1926 Broadway premiere of "Chicago," so I guess she can darn well put her shoes on the cushions. I see women wearing pointy-toed shoes like this every day.

Nonchalance

Thy name is Francine. "Just one more, please."

Shoes

Her shoes were probably as much the style of the time as they could have been the ladies weapon of the day! Ouch!!

Shoes off the furniture, please!

I must have heard that phrase hundreds of times, as a kid! I don't have to worry about it, now, because I just don't wear shoes unless I am leaving home. Maybe Mlle. Larrimore should try it!
