Old Hollywood Trivia

Dolores del Rio : Reportedly slept for 16 hours a day to maintain her beauty.

Marlene Dietrich: She was the first German actress to be nominated for an Academy Award.

- Marlene was one of the first artists to use surgical tape to pull back the skin on her face, thus giving her a ‘facelift’. She hid the tape in her hairline or under a wig.

Jean Harlow : She was the first actress with ‘platinum blonde’ hair.
Her hairdresser used peroxide, ammonia, Clorox and Lux flakes to create the color.Obviously, the mixture was toxic for her hair and near the end of her life Jean wore wigs because her hair was falling out.

- Jean and fellow actress Hedy Lamarr were the primary inspirations for Catwoman.

Ava Gardner : When she was a teenager she had a big crush on future co-star Clark Gable.

- Although Ava drank plenty, she did not even like the taste of alcohol. She often drank because she was shy and nervous and it
helped her feel at ease in social situations and in front of the camera

Katharine Hepburn : As a child, Katharine cut her hair off, wore boys’ clothes and made people call her Jimmy.

- When she was growing up, it was normal in the Hepburn household to take ice-cold baths or showers daily.
She continued to do this for the rest of her life and would give it as health advice to people.

James Stewart : He was head male cheerleader at Princeton.

- James was one of the first stars to receive a percentage of the gross of his movies, a common practice today

Elizabeth Taylor : She was known to be at least ten minutes late for everything.
So at her request, her funeral began 15 minutes after it was scheduled to begin.

- She was reportedly so poorly educated that she needed to use her fingers to do basic arithmetic,something that bothered and emberassed her when she started seeing the intelligent Richard Burton.

Cary Grant : He sunbathed everyday for thirty minutes to ‘keep that healthy glow’.

- He was very good friends with his colleague Ingrid Bergman.
Cary was one of the few who supported her throughout her notorious affair with director Rossellini and he accepted her Best Actress Oscar for her in 1958 while she was in exile in Italy.

Grace Kelly : All of her leading men were old enough to be her father
(with the exception of William Holden, who was 11 years older than her)

- In her senior yearbook, her classmates predicted that she was certain ‘to become a great stage and screen star’.

Why don’t you look in that magical future book. It should tell you.

At approximately 6:00AM on 12 September, 1994, police received a hysterical call from 17-year-old Michelle Murphy who exclaimed that she had woken up to discover her 15-week-old son, Travis, brutally stabbed to death on the kitchen floor. Oklahoma law forbid police from questioning minors without a guardian present. Nevertheless, Michelle was interrogated alone for eight hours. Police claim that Michelle confessed to killing her son accidentally, while quarrelling with another woman. The officer interrogating her had a tape recorder, however only managed to record the last 20 minutes of the interrogation. It was soon revealed that a neighbour, 14-year-old William Lee, had called 911 at 3:00AM on the morning of the discovery. He had claimed to witness Michelle and her estranged husband, Harold Wolf, arguing. When police arrived, there appeared to be no disturbance, nobody answered the door and they soon left.

William then told police that approximately one hour later, he saw Michelle carry baby Travis into the kitchen. He decided to get closer to see what she was doing and claimed he then saw Travis on the kitchen floor, covered in blood. Despite apparently seeing this, William said he then went home and didn’t think about calling the police. Instead, he went to bed. He recounted this story at a preliminary hearing but hanged himself just a few months later. During Michelle’s trial, William’s testimony that was recorded at the preliminary trial was used as evidence. The defence team contacted Harold, who testified that he wasn’t at the house that night and several people corroborated his story that he was actually at a friend’s house.

Despite the fact that the murder weapon was not discovered, nor was there any evidence linking Michelle to the murder, she was found guilty and sentenced to life imprisonment. Michelle remained in prison for 20 years, until two lawyers decided to re-investigate the case. They discovered that there was blood discovered at the crime scene that did not match Michelle or Travis. They also uncovered that the detective who claimed that Michelle confessed, had obtained a false confession years prior. In 2014, she was finally declared innocent and released.

Mary put the words “Miss me?” on her tape because she knew it would get Sherlock’s attention. That means the tape had to be recorded sometime between Moriarty’s return and her own death. Mary had her own premonition of death, she must’ve seen the grim figure in the morning and was just waiting for the night to roll around. She knew she was walking straight into Samarra.

Be Kind, Rewind

Peridot discovers the ultra-rare Camp Pining Hearts miniseries, Summer in Saskatoon, but there’s just one catch: it was only released on VHS. Luckily, she tracks the tapes down to a local video store where she can rent them one at a time. After making it through the fourth of five tapes, which ends in a major cliffhanger that could affect the relationships of every character on the show (even camp counselors Larry and Liz), Peridot is stunned to learn that she has been banned from the video store for not rewinding the previous tapes before returning them. Can Peridot fool the store’s manager by sending in Amethyst to rent the final tape for her, or will she never know what happens?

Summary: Sometimes, you have to lose your way before you can find yourself. It’s a tough world out there, especially in the world of ballet, but all it takes is one particularly fishy encounter to change your life forever.

“Honestly, why do you even bother getting a pedicure? You know they’re going to be ruined at the end of dance practice,” Joy tells you with a sniffle of disdain at your perfectly painted toenails as she winds tape around her own bare, unpainted toes.

You wiggle your toes in the air, admiring the glossy wine red of your newly acquired pedicure. It makes your feet look a little less bruised and battered, and even though you know the paint will chip off the second you step into your pointe shoes, it’s worth it nonetheless whenever you get to see your feet in flip flops. Which isn’t much, considering that you eat, sleep and breathe dance. It’s considered the norm here at Busan High School of Arts, and the bare minimum if you want to make the monthly cut where they eliminate the unskilled dancers in order to avoid wasting resources.

From the corner of your eye, you spot your dance teacher Seolhyun making her way into the room, and the other dancers are beginning to take their places for the routine warm up that starts every class. With practiced ease, you tape your toes into place to provide extra support and grab your pointe shoes, sliding into them, then doing up the ribbons securely around your ankles and tucking the ends away neatly. You take your place beside Joy near the front of the class and slip into the warm up that you could do with your eyes closed.

Aaaaand here we go! The first doodle for the new Infected!AU! I had a lot of fun drawing Twilight here, and I think I’ve gotten a bit better in displaying a character’s silhouette! I also tried a different coloring technique; I kinda like it, but it probably isn’t the one I want for this AU…. not “dirty” enough, anyway. Aw well. :/

Anyway, Twilight here; this is her in her most bare sans being naked. I’d imagine the survivors of this AU would wear a little extra padding here and there to help prevent getting possibly bitten, so Twi owns leather bracers and such to protect her arms while her pants have a little padding under them. The tape around her legs are to keep her pants from being so loose and reduces the risk of getting caught on stuff. The knife is kept rusty on purpose, to be more of a danger to the living that may threaten her.

The tattoo on her arm covers the bite wound, so it usually negates suspicion at a glance, but anyone looking very closely will be able to tell the bumps of a scar under it. Worst comes to worse, she’s usually able to write it off as a dog bite from years ago.

As for Twilight herself, in this AU she is infected and has been for quite a while (for about 10 years). She’s immune to the infection, however, which was discovered when she was bitten and left her brother’s settlement to die alone, only to return a week later. In this AU, thanks to the infection still having a bit of an effect on her, she’s easier to irritate and is more aggressive (to the point that some cringe at her brutality). The infection causes her to have a high body temperature and a faster metabolism, but it also makes her prone to headaches and the occasional full-body ache. The bite itself usually simmers at a constant dull ache, one she’s learned to completely ignore, but sometimes the scar gives her something similar to intense phantom pains, as if she had just experienced being bitten, despite the wound having been long since healed.

She’s on a personal mission to find and engineer a possible cure to the infection using her immunity as a basis, but her goal isn’t to give this cure to the world. It’s to have it on hand for her brother’s settlement to make their lives a little less scary when under threat of infection; as far as she’s concerned, the world as a whole has long since damned itself, the outbreak not withstanding.

Aaaand yeah. I’ll hopefully have the time to do the rest of the characters the same treatment, but until then, I hope you like this one. And if you have any questions feel more than free to ask! :3
