I went along on Saturday to view the
'Glamour of the Gods' exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery.
I started to jot down a few of my favourites for this post
but quickly realised it was impossible. I was writing down every image.
By this point I had only covered the 1920's and 1930's
with three more decades to go. I stopped writing, read every word,
and went around again. They are all fabulous
and the catalogue is equally as impressive.
Stay a while...the National Portrait Gallery is a treasure in itself.
You could easily pass the day.
Before I go...I admit I had one absolute favourite...
|Evelyn Brent, 1899-1975|

If you see this exhibit, you will leave thinking much as I did,
about another time, on the silent screen....
The exhibit runs through 23 October.
