Postcards From The Stars...

I've been meaning to post these for ages, so here they are. It seems that Janet Wanger (unfortunate surname alert!) wrote to the stars asking for their pictures. These are what she received in reply. The post marks indicate that the were sent between November 14th, 1950 and April 11th, 1952.

Anna Blythe...look at those lips. Botox free. And look - you can buy bigger prints in various sizes!

Arlene Dahl...

Peggy Dow...too busy to sign her name.

I'm guessing this girl's name wasn't "Jeff' as signed. Maybe it's Alice Babs?

Marion Marshall - short and sweet.

Joyce Holden...keepin' it business.

Cute, right?


  1. I think the incomprehensible signature is Arlene Dahl:

    Amazing how completely celebrities can vanish!

  2. These are wonderful. But I had a difficult time getting past the unfortunate surname. ;] I giggled.

  3. it's funny how 3 of them have the same printed dedication on the back, I guess they had the same management or something :) I love the way old pictures were taken. I wish starts would do that today.

  4. Beautiful pictures! And just in defense of the name: I suspect it's a variation of a very common Pennsylvania Dutch surname, Wenger.

  5. The first one is absolutely stunning!

  6. I love the phrase "Thank you for your friendly interest". Must start using that. :P


Thanks for your comments!
