  1. It's Hurd Hatfield who played Dorian Gray, not George Sanders.

    1. Thank you! Can you tell I haven't seen the movie in a couple of years? Just goes to show you- never skim a wikipedia article!!

    2. Please follow the blog! Do you have any other feedback??

  2. The Columbo reminds me of the Kramer portrait. Were they by the same artist by any chance?

    1. I did a little cursory research and I believe the answer is NO. While Jerry Gebr DID work for Universal, I could not find his name on any Seinfeld cast lists. I'll look into it more for you.

  3. Can anyone post an image of the portrait of Bette Davis in "Hush Hush Sweet Charlotte" ? Or the portrait of Joan Crawford in "Mommie Dearest"?

    1. I'm trying to remember which scene in MD had a portrait in it... LMK, thx.

    2. The portrait of Joan Crawford in MD is located in her art deco living room...the portrait of Bette in HHSCharlotte is seen in her daddies home office...would be wonderful if a company would make available copies of these famous Hollywood movie scene portraits! Thanks!
