Alice in Wonderland (1903)

This is the very first film adaptation ever of Alice in Wonderland, filmed in 1903, just 37 years after the publication of Lewis Carroll's novel and only 8 years after the invention of the motion picture.





The film was directed by Percy Stow and Cecil Hapworth and stars May Clark as Alice. The movie is silent and was filmed in black and white, but tinted in color. The original print was severely damaged over time and only 8 of the original 12 minutes… Continue

Whatever Happened to Lois Lane

Superman's legendary friend, colleague and (maybe) lover could be naive, tough or anything. First and foremost, she was oh, so romantic...

But she was also a star of hyper-cynical comic books series, full of black humor and all things that would not fit into your politically correct closet - and could not fit even half a century ago.

Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane,… Continue

Dieselpunk and Steampunk case mods

Two Fisted Tuesdays with Philip Marlowe - Where There's a Will

Welcome to Two Fisted Tuesdays, Dieselpunks' weekly beat on the mean streets.



We're listening to The Adventures of Philip Marlowe until we either run out of ammo or until poor Philip lays down for the big sleep.



Starring Gerald Mohr and starting with the famous lines, "Get this and get it straight! Crime is a sucker's road and those who travel it wind up in the gutter, the prison or the grave. There's no other way, but they never learn." The… Continue

WWII nosecone and fighter plane artwork

Before my hard drive crashes and burns, I have a few photos stored that I'd like to share with the group. If you have any similar galleries on your computer, start uploading them to the PHOTOS gallery. We'd love to see them!



In honor of Larry's earlier blog about nosecone art, here are some great examples of the artwork that kept our boys flying overseas.

1942 Cigarette Cards

This is only a small part of Charlie Livermore's collection. For me, it's the most fascinating part.

I can easily imagine the boys of my father's generation exchanging cards and discussing the virtues of Allied airplanes and warships while their fathers and elder brothers are fighting the Axis.

The back of each card is businesslike and hardly interesting.… Continue
