The Circus: 1948

The Circus: 1948

1948. "Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus." Color transparency for Look magazine by the future film director Stanley Kubrick, who manages to make this look like an avant-garde Coke ad. View full size.

Today’s Top 5

Graflite flash

Actually they only get around $80 for the flash handle for the Star Wars geeks. I have 2 of these plus 3 new in box that came with the Speed Graphic I bought off a photographer who retired.

Boys will be boys

And this is why boys always wanted to run off and join the circus!

Astounding!

Don't know where you found these Stanley Kubrick photos, they're terrific!
Everything about these shots are astounding!

Light saber

The flash gun in the upper left will draw up to $1000 or more today, for folks wanting to build a movie-authentic Star Wars light saber! Pull off the reflector, add a switch where the cable comes out, and glue on sections of windshield wiper blades(!) for grips, and you have an exact replica of Luke's weapon.

Lower Left Corner

Whose hands are those? Freddy Kreuger? Edward Scissorhands? The Creature From The Black Lagoon?

Pretty scary showdows!
