Okay, this isn't a Christmas shot. But, I've always thought this
opening number in "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes" ("Little Girl From
Little Rock" had a real holiday vibe about it!)

Thanks for the Old Hollywood photos, Tristan. Nothing screams Christmas louder than a starlet wrapped in cellophane and tinsel!

What fun. I played a little game with myself to see if I could name the star before I scrolled down. Not too bad. A couple I was surprised the one of them labeled Rita looked like an older Shirley Temple like when she did "The Bachelor and the Bobby Soxer." There was a couple I flubbed on, but fab glamour. Thanks for putting these together and sharing!
