Today’s Birthday: Buster Keaton. 🎈
Born in October 4, 1895 he was best known for his silent films, in which his trademark was physical comedy with a consistently stoic, deadpan expression, earning him the nickname “The Great Stone Face.” Critic Roger Ebert wrote of Keaton’s “extraordinary period from 1920 to 1929, [when] he worked without interruption on a series of films that make him, arguably, the greatest actor–director in the history of the movies.
So… Today marks 91 years since we lost Rudolph Valentino.
Rudolph became my favorite actor from the Old Hollywood so today isn’t a light day for me.
He died 91 years ago and I am 31 years old, so I am asked how I get this sad when this date comes… Some people capture your attention and admiration in the first moment you see them, it doesn’t matter if they are still alive or gone a long time, and Rudolph, like Marilyn and Lillian, did this to me.
Today is the date I wanted to go till where he’s resting to take some flowers, but won’t be possible for me to do this today, sadly, so I will spend the hours I will have left reading his poem books and buy some flowers in his memory.
Clearly he was a talent gone too soon and unexpectedly.
I am thankful for all the videos of him that have been uploaded on YouTube, so I can download them and always have with me, and I am also thankful that the world could have had him, even that for only 31 years.
Forever remembered, Rudy! 💖🌹
Today’s is to be celebrated as Moe Howard’s birthday. 🎈 He would have turned 120 years old today.
He was born Moses Harry Horwitz on June 19, 1897, in the Brooklyn, New York City neighborhood of Bensonhurst to Solomon Horwitz and Jennie Gorovitz, the fourth-born of five brothers of Lithuanian-Jewish ancestry. He was named Moe when still very young and later called himself Harry. His parents and brothers, Benjamin and Irving were not involved in show business, but Moe, older brother Shemp Howard, and younger brother Curly Howard all eventually became known as members of The Three Stooges. He loved to read as older brother Jack recalled: “I had many Horatio Alger books, and it was Moe’s greatest pleasure to read them. They started his imaginative mind working and gave him ideas by the dozen. I think they were instrumental in putting thoughts into his head to become a person of good character and to become successful.” This helped him in his acting career in later years, such as in memorizing his lines quickly and easily.
Happy Birthday, Moe 🎂🎁🎉

I still watch Bonanza daily 💕
Rudolph is now, without any kind of doubt, my favorite actor from the Old Hollywood.
I’ve posted about him few times, but I’ve been gathering more and more information about him, and also looking for his movies and watching as much as I can find about him on YouTube, but what I’m actually doing the most lately is collecting pictures of him and adding to my folder.
Here are some of my favorite pictures of him, and all of them have been my wallpaper on my tablet at some point.
Rudolph and Natacha Rambova (I believe)
A rare photograph of Rudolph’s hair falling a little over his face, which I must say… I loved so much finding ❤

His beautiful face at the fullest.
It’s really such a tragedy that he went too soon. Reading Wikipedia, I found out that the day he passed away, he was awake for some time during the morning, and spoke with the doctors about his future before slipping into a coma and passing away hours later.
I believe I have previously said this, but the doctors knew that he would pass away and hid this from him because it was something common during that time, but I don’t know exactly how I feel about this, but really is sad that he was gone so soon and unexpectedly as well, just like happened to so many good actors and actresses.
They really don’t make them like before….
