FAYE DUNAWAY : TALENTED ACTRESS : OFTEN PLAYS STRONG WILLED COMPLEX FEMALE LEADS

This vintage photograph is a portrait of actress, Faye Dunaway (1941-). The photo captures Dunaway in her role as a television executive in the film “Network”. Dunaway came away from the movie with an Academy Award  (Best Actress). “Network” (1976) was a satirical drama. It was written by Paddy Chayefsky and directed by Sidney Lumet. Dunaway was born in Florida but because her father was an Army officer, she lived in a number of places in the US and in Europe. During her childhood she took dance, piano and singing lessons. She attended a number of colleges, but graduated from Boston University with a degree in theater. Soon after graduation, she appeared on Broaday in the drama “A Man for All Seasons”. She then appeared in a number of other theater productions. Her film debut was in “The Happening” (1967). She played the role of Bonnie Parker in the film, “Bonnie and Clyde” (1967). She got the role despite the initial objections of co-star Warren Beatty. She was nominated for “Best Actress” by the Academy Awards. The film made her into a star. Her next film “The Thomas Crown Affair” (1968) also was a hit. She received great reviews. Other film roles included “Little Big Man” (1970), “Chinatown” (1974), “The Towering Inferno” (1974). and  “Mommie Dearest” (1981). The IMDb reports that Dunaway appeared in 115 television and film roles.  The IBDb reveals that Dunaway appeared in five Broadway plays between 1961 and 1982. Dunaway’s personal life was somewhat unstable. Perhaps it was not more stable because of her many changes in residence during her father’s military career? In 1962 she had a year long relationship with comic Lenny Bruce. In 1968 she began a two year relationship with married actor Marcello Mastroianni. In 1974 she married Peter Wolf, the lead singer of “The J. Geils Band”. In 1977 she and Wolf were photographed by photographer Terry O’Neill who was working for People Magazine. O’Neill became her second husband in 1983. After her divorce from O’Neill, she had a number of other significant relationships. Interestingly, both of her marriages were of four years duration. This vintage photo was  a press photo. It helped promote the film “Network. The photo is in excellent condition (see scans).

JEAN RUTHERFORD : WINNER OF THE “DAILY MIRROR” BEAUTY CONTEST AND CHAMPION OF MANUAL WORKERS

This vintage press photo features Miss Jean Rutherford, winner of a beauty contest sponsored by the Daily Mirror, a newspaper in Great Britain. The contest had 22,000 entrants. Miss Rutherford was from Perth, a city in Scotland. Besides choosing a winner of the beauty pageant, the contest was supposed to determine whether manual or “brain workers” were the most beautiful. I guess this silly question was supposed to increase interest and excitement about the contest among the newspaper’s readers. Manual workers were determined to be the prettiest because Miss Rutherford worked as a domestic servant. Before I began researching Miss Rutherford, I was hoping that she went on from this contest and has a successful career as an actress, or some other profession. Unfortunately, my preliminary investigating did not reveal any information about what happened to Miss Rutherford after her victory. This press photo was formerly part of the collection belonging to Victor Forbin (1864-1947), accomplished French writer. This photograph measures about 6″ x 8″ and is in good condition (note staining near the upper right hand corner).    (SOLD)
