cute couple alert

Mick Jones and Ellen Foley (with Joe Strummer and I’m not sure who that other chick is. Anyone?). Circa 1981.

Before the internet made everything so instantly verifiable it seemed almost like a bizarre urban legend to me that the girl who sang on Hitsville UK was the same girl who sang on that Meatloaf album and who played the district attorney on Night Court before Markie Post. Still seems a little weird I guess.


Delphine Seyrig in Accident. Losey. 1967.


Mervyn LeRoy. 1932.

press conference

Ringo and Harry sell the latest Apple Films masterpiece, Son of Dracula. This photo might have been taken at the film’s Atlanta premiere but I can’t find any evidence that Nilsson even bothered to turn up for that coming as it did 2 years after production on the film wrapped. Not helping matters is that Harry seemed to really like the denim on denim look so nearly all photos of him from around this time look as though they were taken on the same day. So then, possibly April 1974.
