Inspired by Sniffing Glue

UPDATE: Yes, this image is pretty cool. DON'T STEAL IT. I don't own the rights to it, and neither do you. I scanned the original, for archival purposes.

 

From Ben and Al's morgue files. Possibly from the movie "Just Imagine," 1930. My grandfather and great-uncle were artists who shared a studio and they had two four-drawer file cabinets filled with stuff like this, for reference. They also had movie theater clients in Philadelphia for whom they would paint posters, and so they received lots of movie stills from the studios. My uncle has written at the top: "Cost. Th.," for filing under theatrical costumes.
