NugentBased on The Quiet Man1933 story in The Saturday Evening Post by Maurice Walsh “During the making of His Girl Friday, Cary and I would occasionally go out to dinner and to dance. He’d call up and ask would I like to go jigging, and I’d spend three days getting ready, piling on everything Elizabeth Arden had to offer and then some.”– Rosalind Russell, Life is a Banquet Marc YankusMany Windows in Chelsea, 2013 Lia wears a hat by Jacques Fath in a 1952 photo by Georges Dambier for the French fashion magazine Arachnée Poul HenningsenPiano lamp, 1931 Uncredited Photographer, Berber Jewish Woman, High Atlas Mountain Region, Morocco, c.1930 Erwin Blumenfeld Catherine CassidyFor “Vogue”, New York City 1949 “A few years earlier, Marilyn had called and asked me to play a joke on her husband, Joe DiMaggio. Apparently, Joe was a fan of mine and always teased Marilyn about how attracted to me he was. She was sick and tired of hearing her husband talk about me and I don’t blame her. She asked me if I would mind being wrapped in a big box with a ribbon tied in a bow around it, to be her gift to Joe on his birthday. The huge box would be on a large table, and right before he opened it, she was going to say, “Now, Joe, after I give you this, I don’t ever want to hear about Maureen O’Hara again.” Then as he pulled the bow and ribbon off, I was supposed to pop out of the box while the crowd shouted, “Surprise!” I thought it would be great fun, sadly, they separated just before it could be done.”—‘Tis Herself: An Autobiography by Maureen O’Hara Untitledby Clyfford Still (American, 1904–1980)1971Oil on canvas79 5/8 x 64 3/4in.
