What an actress. :emthup:

What an actress, indeed.

For my part, I first became aware of her in John Boorman's "Excalibur," where she played Morgana. Wowza.



Her appearance in a film generally classes up the joint. I'm a fan.

Amazing how some folks just excel at what they do and glow like beacons over most others in their field Surly.

 Such sweet looking children.  :-\ :icon_scratch:

                                   
                                           Josef Mengele was a German Schutzstaffel (SS) officer and physician in Auschwitz concentration camp during World War II. Mengele was a notorious member of the team of doctors responsible for the selection of victims to be killed in the gas chambers and for performing deadly human experiments on prisoners.

                                     
                                            Benito Mussolini was an Italian politician, journalist, and leader of the National Fascist Party (Partito Nazionale Fascista; PNF), ruling the country as Prime Minister from 1922 to 1943. He ruled constitutionally until 1925, when he dropped all pretense of democracy and set up a legal dictatorship. Known as Il Duce (The Leader), Mussolini was the founder of Italian Fascism.


                                     
                                               Himmler’s SS organized and administered Germany’s regime of concentration camps and, after 1941, the holocaust in Poland.


                                     
                                              Andrei Romanovich Chikatilo was a Soviet serial killer, nicknamed the Butcher of Rostov, the Red Ripper, and the Rostov Ripper, who committed the sexual assault, murder, and mutilation of at least 52 women and children between 1978 and 1990 in the Russian SFSR.


                                     
                                              Charles Milles Manson is an American criminal and former cult leader who led what became known as the Manson Family, a quasi-commune that arose in California in the late 1960s. Manson’s followers committed a series of nine murders at four locations in July and August of 1969.


                                     
                                            Jeffrey Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal, was an American serial killer and sex offender, who committed the rape, murder, and dismemberment of seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991.


                                         
                                                Aileen Carol Wuornos was an American serial killer who killed seven men in Florida between 1989 and 1990 by shooting them at point-blank range.

Re: History in Photographs - 11:00 A.M. Monday, May 9th, 1910 - Lewis Hine
« Reply #48 on: January 27, 2018, 05:45:03 PM »
Surly should enjoy this one.

11:00 A.M. Monday, May 9th, 1910. Newsies at Skeeter's Branch, Jefferson near Franklin. They were all smoking. Location: St. Louis, Missouri.
                         




Artist:
    Lewis Hine (American, 1874–1940)

Date:
    May 9, 1910

Medium:
    Gelatin silver print



In 1908 Lewis Hine accepted a position as chief investigator and photographer for the National Child Labor Committee (NCLC), a private organization founded in 1904 to promote legislation to protect children from exploitation by American industry. Children as young as four years old labored in a variety of trades for up to twelve hours a day. During the sixteen years that Hine worked for the NCLC (often posing as an insurance inspector to gain access to the worksite), he made some five thousand photographs of children at work in mines, farms, canneries, sweatshops, and the street. Less troubling than many of Hine's pictures of child labor, this casual portrait of a trio of newspaper sellers, or newsies, shows the young boys awkwardly assuming the roles and mannerisms of manhood.

And I do. Lewis Hine's work attracted me as Icame of age. His photographs were instrumental in changing child labor laws in the United States.
