|Basil Rathbone in Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon.|
Really? Arthur Conan Doyle believed the dead could speak
to us -- why didn't he come back and complain?
|Joan Crawford must have had 285 bobby pins |
in this every-which-way updo...
|Bette Davis in The Little Foxes ... great movie,|
fabulous performance ... maybe the hair is
authentic for the era, but sometimes
authentic can be taken too far...
|Judy Garland in Meet Me In St. Louis ... again, great movie, great|
singer (darling Margaret O'Brien) ...but I never could figure out
whether those are puffed-up bangs or long hair tortured forward ...
|Rudy Vallee ... popular singer, cute face ...|
sharply defined hair part and what
looks like 3 cans of Brylcreem ...
|Young and beautiful Joan Crawford ... but let's face it,|
no decent streetwalker would wear that hairbow!
|Silent film star Valkyrien ... I don't know how I feel about the|
hair ... but look at that gigantic bonnet thing ...
|William Holden in Sabrina ... it's hard to find any picture that |
makes Holden look bad ... but yellow hair? I don't think so ...
|I really don't mean to pick on Joan, but she had some weird do's ... same|
bangs (?) as Judy, with a groove in the center, but with puffs of hair on
each side ... In the 1920's, they used to call those "cootie garages" ...
|I have no idea who this lady is .. it is a happy day for her,|
but why did 1920 fashion designers create headgear that came
so far down on the forehead that it looked positively neanderthal ...
Hope you had fun with this look at what are, in my humble opinion, some pretty bad do's!
