From F. Percy Smith’s The Birth of a Flower (1910).
Raymond Chandler (July 23, 1888—March 26, 1959) makes his cameo in Double Indemnity, sitting outside Keyes’s office, reading a pulp novel.
"We queens are not free to answer the call of our heart…" Lil Dagover in The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1919).
Kay Francis in A Notorious Affair (1930).
Cary Grant (and Leslie Caron’s foot) in Father Goose (1964).
James Garner in Marlowe (1969). May this wonderful actor rest in peace. He made charm seem so easy—and we all know it’s not!—on both the big and small screens.
Vampira enjoys a vampire cocktail (“You like it, it hates you!”) in a rare clip from The Vampira Show. [x]
Helen Mirren in Michael Powell’s Age of Consent (1969).

Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn in Dodge City (1939).
A heart in a jar from Dwain Esper’s Maniac (1934), one of the worst and weirdest movies ever made. Here’s my post about this early exploitation flick.
From Dracula (1931).
Joan Fontaine in Casanova’s Big Night (1954).
