Re: Charlie Watts

Shame to hear of his passing. If anyone's interested, Paul McCartney had some kind words to say about Charlie:

Re: Who's on the banner?

From left to right, Luke the dog, that little capuchin monkey from Harold Lloyd's The Kid Brother ( according to IMDb his name was Jocko), Rin Tin Tin, Brown Eyes the cow from Buster Keaton's Go West , and Rex the Wonder Horse (aka, Rex, Ki...

Re: Who's on the banner?

We're crazy about flappers this August! Let's daydream about ice cream and a Black Bottom contest at the dance hall, a trip to Coney Island, rolled stockings and bobbed hair, and of course a night at the pictures! From left to right, Alice White looking coy, Olive Borden living up to her nickname of...
