Seeing Mick and Jerry in that photo brings back memories of when the Stones actually meant something to music .. and music meant something to them . not just dollar dollar bills!

I forgot how beautiful Paloma Picasso and Anjelica Huston are. Stunning photos.

Studio 54 - dang! if those walls could talk

@ WWH - I was wondering the same thing
maybe just her "escort"???

"Broadway star Tommy Tune and comedienne Phyllis Diller shaking it up at Studio 54 as a waiter in his uniform of basketball shorts and sneakers heads the other way."

The photo of Mrs. Chow is beautiful. These pictures always make me so curious. I wonder if today's celeb-scene would appear classier if cast in B&W, or if photography was still an art.

THAT is what you cal celebrities--not what we are stuck with now.

Jewels said...

that last shot of Anjelica and Jack is gorgeous. So much feeling in that one photo, it's palpable

Grace said...

Marissa Berenson is gorgeous. All these pictures -- such memories.

I remember when Jerri Hall was going out with "Mick" when she was a young spoiled model. A clip was show of her on TV, sitting on a chair getting her hair done and she points to a hickey on her neck and said Mick did that.

Reese said...

Thanks much Enty; those were fabulous. I would have loved to have been around in that era. Especially love the Halston picture and Mick and Jerry.

No kidding "if these walls could talk"!

Margaux Hemingway had a very sad life and ended up dead at age 41 from a drug overdose suicide, on the anniversary of a her grandfather Ernest Hemingway's suicide.

Tommy Tune was one of those gay guys I had a crush on. He was super tall, and a great tap dancer.

Willow said...

Margaux .. wow. There was just something haunting about that girl that seemed to foreshadow her decline and death. That lost look in spite of the small smile .. so terribly sad.

Judi said...

Yup, those were the good old days.

SARA:
THIS IS AN INTERVIEW FROM FEB. 2008 FROM 'ANOTHER' MAGAZINE:

Jack and Anjelica: from 1973 onwards, they were America's favourite showbiz soulmates, the apogee of cool coupledom. But cool was tough. "Jack was a huge movie star and got a lot of attention and sometimes it was hard to be around it, because it would come uncensored and very directly whether I was with him or not," Huston recalls. "Girls threw themselves at him. And he was all boy. He wasn't going to turn down anything interesting, particularly if I was away. And I was away a lot. I was working a lot, he was working a lot."

It was small comfort that she was the one her wayward lover came home to – "particularly if he was coming home with the scent of another woman on his hands. Mostly you take those things as they come and there are moments when you're really close and other times when you find a letter in a drawer and it drives you crazy or someone comes up and slips a number into his pocket. I know one thing for sure: if you go looking for it, you'll find it." '

"Relationships are so mutable," she muses. "There are moments when you think it's more important than anything to stay together, but you drift in different directions. Ultimately, it's terribly hard for me to break up with people, but Jack and I had essentially broken up a long time before we did break up. We weren't living together, we were seeing other people, we weren't discussing it with each other. A lot of the confrontational quality of our relationship – that confrontation that goes with knowing someone belongs to you – did not exist anymore. But the actual act of breaking up with Jack was huge; it was like breaking up with a parent. It was as hard as any death that I've survived."

It was ultimately her decision, though Nicholson fathering a child with another woman in 1989 didn't leave her much room for manoeuvre. "For years, I felt Jack would wake up some day and count the measure of his loss when it comes to me, but I don't think so. He's as happy as a clam up there in his lair watching basketball on television, or enjoying whatever it is he's enjoying."

Huston once remarked that, in a relationship, you have to give without any expectation of success. Does she feel this is a woman's lot in love? "No, I think in a way it's a man's lot too. There is really no justice in love. You can't go into something emotional with a bargain in mind. You have to love unequivocally. You have to be direct in your emotions otherwise you can't expect anyone to deal directly with you."
