Stained Glass ~ Part 1





 


LET'S EAT IT!

This is one of my favorite scenes in all of cinema. Pay attention at the 1:40 mark onward, and you'll hear Catherine Deneuve say "Un ange passe," when she senses an awkward pause in the conversation. Hubert, the French Planter, then answers her in French and explains to Willard(Martin Sheen) that he had said, "Let's eat it." "Qu'on de couper." literally means "Let's CUT it."

IT'S TUESDAY...AND THIS ISN'T BELGIUM!

In case you have no idea what that means...http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0064471/
No Suzanne Pleshette in these 22 shots, but lots of Worcesterians.

URQUHART_0001

This cabinet card features actress Isabelle Urquhart (1865-1907). She was an American stage actress and contralto who appeared in mostly comic operas and musical comedies. Urquhart was born in New York City and claimed to have been educated in a convent. She made her first stage appearance in 1881. She performed as a chorus girl at the Standard Theatre in New York City. She than appeared in a number of small roles. From 1882 through 1883 she joined Augustin Daly's company and acted in productions including "The Passing Regiment" and "The Squire". In the latter production she was only seventeen years of age but played a ninety-seven year old woman. She returned to light opera because of it's better compensation although she stated she preferred legitimate drama to comic opera. She had much success in major roles in light operas including in the hit operetta  "Erminine" which ran from 1886 through 1888 at the Casino Theatre. She also had success in other productions by luminaries such as Gilbert and Sullivan. In her leading lady role in "Erminine", she started a fashion trend by not wearing petticoats in order "to accentuate her gorgeous figure". Urquhart later appeared in vaudeville. Blue Vaudeville (2004) states that in a sketch at the Union Square Theatre, she "did little more than display her form in a handsome gown to the utmost advantage". Urquhart also performed in several Broadway plays including "The Diplomat" (1902), "Arms and the Man" (1906), and "How He Lied to Her Husband". This cabinet card was published by Newsboy and was number one i a series of photographs that were distributed as a premium accompanying tobacco sales.

CUBAN CLASS PHOTOGRAPH (1936-1937)

by bmarshphd

CLASS 1936This non cabinet card photograph features a portrait of a class from a Cuban school. The photograph was taken during the 1936-1937 school year. The children are multi racial and all boys. There are three teachers evident in the photograph. Note the math problems written on the blackboard. The photographer is J. R. Betancourt. I do not know where in Cuba Betancourt operated his studio. "10 de Octubre 618" is likely the street address of the studio. "10 de Octurbre" is a national holiday in Cuba. The day is known as "Grito de Yara" and it commemorates the 10 Years War (1868-1878). The war was fought to gain freedom and independence from Spain.
