Happy 4th of July from Classic Hollywood

Here’s to the Red, White and Blue in classic black and white

Happy 4th of July from MadgesHatbox.  During the golden age of Hollywood the movie studio publicity departments would crank out photos stills for every occasion.  Here’s a fun selection of your favorite stars in full 4th of July regalia.  If you don’t enjoy these then I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy!

My vote for the most beautiful movie star of all time – Heddy Lamar looking absolutely radiant as a Ziegfeld Girl.

This one of Joan Crawford just cracks me up.  She doesn’t look very happy to be the Statue of Liberty

Paulette Goddard all wrapped up.

And finally on this happy 4th of July, a magnificent photo of Ginger Rogers.  A much more convincing Lady Liberty than Crawford.
