Mamie Van Doren, one of the many buxom, blond, B-list sex symbol types of the 1950's. But how many people do you know who play chess in a canoe?

Ann Rutherford (1917 – 2012) was a Canadian-born American actress in film, radio, and television. She had a long career starring and co-starring in films, playing Polly Benedict during the 1930s and 1940s in the Andy Hardy series, and appearing as one of Scarlett O'Hara's sisters in the film Gone with the Wind.

There's a very famous celebrity in this c. 1924 photo taken on Garoupe beach (la plage de la Garoupe) in Antibes, France.

It's a bare-chested Pablo Picasso. His wife, ballet dancer Olga Khokhlova, is standing on the deck of the canoe in a tutu.

In memory of his grand times at that beach, Picasso 31 years later created a painting called La Plage a la Garoupe:

Smoking and paddling. What was the pic from? Do you know?
Jim

Who among us has ever smoked while paddling 42 years ago? 👋 I ran across the picture on Pinterest or eBay. It is from the 1980 movie Little Darlings. Here's another shot with Matt Dillon climbing in the canoe.

Not I. A college girlfriend smoked camel lights, and they didn’t agree with me. Kind of cured me I suppose.
