Run, Young Man, Run!

Please run as fast as you can.

She already has you putting her high on a pedestal plus she has the look of a Suffragette and worst of all she is also probably a Prohibitionist.

Head for those hills and don't stop until you are standing in the Pacific Ocean.

If thou kiss not me

I've no idea why but this image instantly brought to mind "Love's Philosophy" by Percy Bysshe Shelley:

The fountains mingle with the river
      And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
      With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
      All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle.
      Why not I with thine?—

See the mountains kiss high heaven
      And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
      If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth
      And the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What is all this sweet work worth
      If thou kiss not me?

Publicity photo

From early in Michael Keaton's career. I cannot identify the wasp-waisted starlet.

Great Grandpa Douglas?

Michael Keaton could have arisen from this couple's lineage!

Miss Direction (pun intended)

I love the way this couple was posed. Technically called "misdirection", it makes this image more intriguing.
