Today this post features the always popular Siamese cats, an apparently red cat and hopefully much to the delight of Michelle (and Alice) several black cats..
This is part of a meme hosted by Michelle @ THE TRUE BOOK ADDICT.
When it comes to male actors there are two who are my number one
- I know, I know.. I really can't decide who I like more - I just love them both!
These two gentlemen are
Peter Lorre and Vincent Price.
Both men had their appearence in this series before - but nevertheless: here they are again - and they brought the wonderful Joyce Jameson with them! I also like her very, very much - a very funny (and quite gorgeous) actress she was.
They appeared in TALES OF TERROR (1962) (based on Edgar Allan Poe's stories) together in the segment THE BLACK CAT..
From the film:
and here they are together:
Joyce and the boys:
Just "the boys":
You can tell me what you want:
I think black cats seem to have the most impressive eyes!
Just look at those little fellas!
Those of you who visit via THE TRUE BOOK ADDICT might not know that this month my blog has a special theme - it's called On the Run : Runaways & Refugees - Escapees & Escapists
So how does this post fit into the theme?
It fits because of Peter Lorre - born as László Löwenstein on June 26, 1904 in Rószahegy (Austria-Ungary - now: Ruzomberok, Slovak Republic) - ran away from home when he was a teenager. In Vienna (Austria) he first worked as a bank clerk before he became an actor (a really great actor if I might add this..). He appeared on several stages and in some German films before he had to leave Germany to rescue his life. Being jewish he wasn't safe in now 3rd Reich..
And in a very sad way also Joyce Jameson fits into the series: she decided to choose the ultimate way to run away: On January 16, 1987 she commited suicide.
Without the approach to belittle Joyce Jameson's fate - but to make this post end with some brighter thoughts:
- here are my favourite cat pictures of Peter Lorre:
The first one I posted now three times:
But this one is (as I hope) new to you:
Thank you all for visiting and listening!
Have a wonderful day!
