Part of why I love Christmas is getting to watch my favorite classic holiday films such as “Christmas in Connecticut”, “White Christmas” and “Remember the Night.”
But I also love looking at Christmas related photos with classic actors and actresses.
Every day since December 1, I’ve been posting a Christmas related photo on Comet Over Hollywood’s Facebook Page, and searching for the day’s photo can be an addicting task.
Even long after I find the photo of the day, I keep browsing-marveling at the ridiculousness of vintage Christmas photos.
I’ve found these classic photos can be divided into categories. Here are some examples:
Glamour: These photos show actors looking beautiful and wealthy at their homes during Christmas.
Gina Lollabrigida looking glamorous in her Christmas tree
Anita Page in 1932
Adorable and cute: These involve child actors or actresses looking sweet and angelic.
The Bogart: Humphrey Bogart, Lauren Bacall and their son Stephen.
Buster Keaton and Natalie Talmadge with Junior and Bob
The children of Our Gang
Little Natalie Wood
Shirley Temple in 1935
Ridiculous or funny: Photos that try way to hard to make a photo Christmasy or make it a sexy Christmas photo.
Dorothy Jordan and Gwenn Lee, I don’t even understand what’s happening.
Joan Crawford flirting with Santa in 1932
Janet Leigh with a Christmas tree hat
Esther Williams in unreasonable winter clothing
Maureen O’Sullivan…..dressed as a choir boy.
Margaret O’Brien…wrapped as a package?
Clifton Webb as the most unlikely Santa Claus
