A Musical Make Up Kit

While perusing the delightful Male Pattern Boldness this morning, I was lucky enough to discover this clip from 1945's "The Dolly Sisters" starring Betty Grable. Vintage beauty lovers, you are in for a real treat--lipstick, powder, rouge, and mascara brought to singing, dancing life. I nearly needed smelling salts!

HOw Wonderful! have you seem Betty Grables' "Moon over Miami"? I love it! The "Nursry rhyme Conga" is my favorite dance number in the movie.

I'm actually in the middle of reading a biography on the Dolly Sisters. They led incredibly interesting lives.http://www.streetswing.com/histmai2/d2dolly1.htm

Mick: I haven't seen "Moon Over Miami", but I'll have to check it out.

Tart Deco: I've heard the name, but don't know much about the Dolly Sisters. They did do some interesting things, didn't they?

Awesome. They are so beautiful. And no airbrushing there!
