    1. Those wigs are a tad disturbing, to say the least!

    2. Unless you have a thing for dancing Eddie Munsters. Incidentally, my security word this time was isotiat. I wonder if it was trying for Isotta Fraschini?

  6. Impressive! I wonder what they used to stretch her skin as tight as a tympani in those pre-botox days?

    1. For those who aren't that familiar with La Belle Swanson, she was a health-food enthusiast for decades (although I do believe she smoked, oddly enough). A face COULD be pulled-back, but notice how firm her jawline is. That can't be pulled-back. What creeps me out is how shiny her skin is, like she worked-up a sweat. Also, her signature eyebrows don't conform to the contour of her face, they're floating on her forehead.

  10. Is it just me or does that high hairline make her look like a Klingon?
