born 1907

anonymous asked:

What "time period" is no evil supposed to be set in?

Oo, I can answer this! With help from an old youtube comment.

An youtube commenter once asked “where did the cast get a gun from the 1800s!?” But, wild west stuff is inherently steampunk - both are in the same era, the 1800s, so it’s perfectly reasonable to have a gun from that era! 

This matches up with the ages of the villiage kids - Edmonia Lewis was born in  1844, and Frida Khalo was born in 1907 - not long after the 1800s. 

So there we have it! The 1800s!

Actor Joseph Kearns was born February 12, 1907. On radio, Kearns could be heard all over the dial in comedies, mysteries, and dramas. He was Ed, the solitary guard keeping watch over Jack Benny’s underground vault; and he was the Man in Black, the sinister master of ceremonies on “radio’s outstanding theater of thrills,” Suspense

Elsewhere, Kearns appeared on The Whistler (where he was especially good at playing average men caught up in escalating trouble), Sam Spade, Burns & Allen, and many more. Kearns could play characters both eccentric and menacing, and his versatility meant he could play multiple characters in the same radio episode. Many episodes of Suspense, for example, feature Kearns as both the Man in Black and in a supporting role. Classic TV fans may know Kearns best as “good ol’ Mr. Wilson” on Dennis the Menace, a role he played from 1959 until his death in 1962. 

Today, in honor of his birthday, I’ll post some episodes of Suspense featuring Joseph Kearns in lead roles. For more old time radio thrillers, click here to subscribe to the “Stars On Suspense” podcast in iTunes.

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: What time period does the movie Up take place in? I mean I know it doesn't matter and it's probably best that we don't know but I was just wondering because all the characters sort of dress in older clothes and the movie has an older aesthetic. But what's REALLY interesting is that after the credits roll, they show a picture of Russell and Mr. Fredricksen going to the opening showing of the movie Star Wars: A New Hope which came out in 1977. But if the movie took place in the 70s then that wouldn't make sense because If that photograph was canon to the story AND if Mr. Fredricksen was about 70 years old in that photograph, then he'd be born in 1907, and if he was about 7 years old when he met Ellie, then it would have been 1914. But that doesn't seem right because there were semi-modern cars when he was young and it just didn't look like the 1910s at all. And even when he found out that Ellie couldn't have kids, there was obviously some sort of modern technology that could examine Ellie's reproductive system and idk a lot about history but I don't think that kind of stuff existed in the 30s. And also the technology to make dogs understandable to humans????? WHEN DID THIS FREAKING MOVIE TAKE PLACE???????
Happy Birthday Katharine Houghton Hepburn (May 12th, 1907 - June 29th, 2003)

Katharine Houghton Hepburn was born on May 12th, 1907 as the second of six children of Katharine Martha Houghton Hepburn and Thomas Norval Hepburn.

When Kate was young all she wanted was becoming an actress because she wanted to be famous. Her first Hollywood role was in “A Bill Of Divorcement” in 1932. That role brought her the first Oscar as the best leading actress. Three other Oscars in the same category should follow (1967 for her role in “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?”, 1968 for her role in “The Lion in Winter and in 1981 for her role in “On Golden Pond”).

Katharine Hepburn’s 4 Oscars.

For more than 60 years Katharine Hepburn worked as an actress. She made a lot of movies.

Four movies she did together with actor Cary Grant (”Sylvia Scarlett” in 1935, “Bringing Up Baby” and “Holiday” in 1938 and “The Philadelphia Story in 1940″)

 

But the most famous collaboration was the one she had with actor Spencer Tracy. Both did 9 movies together in a span of 26 years. (”Woman Of The Year” in 1941, “Keeper Of The Flame” in 1942, “Without Love” in 1945, “The Sea Of Grass” in 1947, “The State Of The Union” in 1948, “Adam’s Rib” in 1949, “Pat And Mike” in 1952, “Desk Set” in 1957 and “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?” in 1967). 

Tracy and Hepburn weren’t only an on-screen couple. During the filming of their first movie “Woman Of The Year” both fell in love and became an off-screen couple as well. Their relationship is one of the most famous ones in Hollywood. They spent 26 years together until Spencer Tracy’s death in 1967.

Katharine Hepburn was one of a kind and was ahead of her time. This and her successful career made her a LEGEND!

Frida Kahlo was born today in 1907. This work, Fulang-Chang and I, was included in her first major exhibition in New York in 1938. She later gave the painting to her close friend Mary Sklar, attaching a mirror to it so that, if Sklar chose, the two friends could be together. This work is currently on view in our Fifth Floor Painting and Sculpture galleries.
