Mowing the Lawn...


Because summer is not only about going to the beach...

Hollywood studios back in the day published innumerable "candid" photographs of stars at work, at play, at doing nothing in particular.  They were often portrayed as glamorous people in glamorous settings, but occasionally they were supposed to be more just like us. 

When Ann Blyth, in company with her aunt and uncle, moved into their new home in the Toluca Lake area of North Hollywood in 1947, the publicity men showed up, of course, to snap a few staged shots.

Here's Ann doing everyone's favorite chore: mowing the lawn.  She was nineteen in this photo. 

Escaping the studio publicity staff was probably more difficult than escaping yardwork.
