All the ladies...

I like to watch a lot of TCM and AMC, it's part of what gave me my inspiration for the story I've been working on. A lot of times when I'm watching these old movies I'll see an actress and think "Oh she would make a great Jane, if I were filming this story in 1948." I know, I need a life. Thank you.

Here are just a few of said inspirations, enjoy!

Lizzy - Hedy Lamarr

She's got a wholesome, sort of good-girl vibe, but looks like she'd have a great sense of humor.

Jane - Carole Landis
This is one of the few actresses I came across that was smiling in most of her photos. It seems that pouting was very popular in the Golden Age of Cinema.

Caroline - Ella Raines
She's gonna get you! 

Claire Connelly - Anna Neagle

She looks sweet, doesn't she? Like the popular girl in school that you wanted to hate but just couldn't.

Anne - Gene Tierney

To me, Anne is sort of perpetually sad.

Georgiana - Janet Blair
It's almost impossible to find photos of young, brunette actresses from the 1940's. Janet definitely has the face though, she looks innocent and good-natured.

Kitty and Lydia - Joan and Constance Bennet

 These two look like trouble, don't they?

Mrs. Bennet - Barbara Stanwyck

She's got the vapors! Quick, grab her smelling salts!

Catherine - Marlene Dietrich

Oh Marlene. I could only find about 2 photos of the woman where she doesn't have a cigarette hanging out of her mouth. I've always thought she looked very forbidding, much like Lady C!

I found out recently that Google gives you all the tools you need to write an Ebook. I was just thinking that this story you are working on can be put in an Ebook to be sold or given away all over the web with your credentials in it.

Just go to and start a new presentation.

I also noticed that your link that is suppose to link to the story you are working on, is only working for you, because only you can see drafts and all unpublished posts.
