Most of you come here to see glamorous pictures of Classic Movie Stars. I’ve got news for you! If you don’t click on any of my links to buy my affordable, entertaining, delightful book—then I will be forced to post pictures of Sidney Greenstreet…naked.

      From what I understand, although WRH was strict and had some highly moralistic rules at the castle (you know, besides living with his mistress who he basically purchased from her father by making sure he was appointed a judge, anyhoooo) the movie stars at the castle just kind of did what they wanted to behind his back. And I say, good on ’em!

      Well, I suppose Mr. Greenstreet would be decorously shrouded by fog in city by the bay 😉 !

    BWAHAHAHAHA! Kaspar Guttman exposed to the elements: tastefully done, I hope… 😉 Not quite the “stuff that DREAMS are made of” but nightmares, indubitably! Sorry, Mr Greenstreet!

      Kaspar Guttman, such a great name, such a great laugh, such a mysterious Maltese Falcon…
