Vintage thingy Thursday - Norma Shearer

What? You don't know Norma Shearer? No, I wasn't around for her movies either, but read her IMDb entry. The photo above is of a homemade scrapbook, put together lovingly by someone in the 1930's, with her favorite female movie stars. I purchased this from an ebay seller in Ohio. Images are cut from magazine, not newspapers. Hollywood doesn't do glamour like this anymore. Enjoy.

I'm participating in Vintage thingy Thursday hosted by Coloradolady! I thought I was up early this AM but at least 23 bloggers beat me!

You are so right...the media is not nearly as charming as it used to be. I would have wanted that scrapbook too. I love it, and can you imagine whom ever put it together must have been a real movie buff...or movie star buff!

Have a great VTT and a wonderful weekend.

I wasn't around for Norma Shearer either, but what a marvelous scrapbook! Hollywood really knew how to do glamor back then. I love the cut-out of Clark Gable and Myna Loy!
