    @Holly Saunders
    Care to hear a quick story about Sinatra? When I lived in Vegas, the current Clark county Sheriff was Ralph Lamb, of the Lamb Mormon family, which had deep roots in Sin City. Ralph's brother Floyd was a State Senator.

    Anyway, Frank Sinatra had been slotted to appear at one of the top hotels; his personal acquaintanceship with known Organized Crime leaders sparked the imperturbable Sheriff to action. He sent notice to Sinatra that when he arrived at McCarron Airport, he would be promptly arrested. Sinatra took the chance, but upon landing, learned the officers were waiting for him. He never emerged from his private plane!

    Just living there back then was a most exhilarating experience! I left to take a job in Colorado upon finishing school at Univ. of Nevada there, but have sworn ever since I should never have left!

    Great story Frank. Sinatra was an aggressive man, who thought he was above the law.... and some of the corrupt law helped him think that, even in this country on the odd occasions he came to perform ... good for the Sheriff

    Fredric March, walking his cocker spaniel in New York City, 1944

    I always liked him, maybe because he was in some really good movies:...A Star is Born,.The Best Years of Our Lives, and. Inherit the Wind

    This is just a little different from all of the other pictures here, but it IS well-known people, and in a definitely unique setting. This is the painting that President Trump has hanging in the White House , and it portrays a happy little card game between some of our presidents. I believe it is called “The Republican Club”.
    It was visible behind the president when he did the interview on 60 Minutes, and come to the attention of many people across America.

    Larry, Moe & Curly, out of character.:);)o_O

    "Later in life, Curly had mental health issues. He was instituted for a while until Moe got him out of there and had private nurses, but I think he got violent with the nurses and had to go back to an institution.
    Moe was like the savior of his town. During the Depression, Moe would always buy toys and clothes for all of the children in the area, every child got a toy on Christmas because of Moe. He'd also help anyone who needed it. Sounded like an incredible man."

    "Larry had a stroke and he spent his elder days living in a retirement home. He would do stand up comedy for colleges, and even though he was in a wheel chair, he'd show his strength by standing up for the crowd. One thing that made me cry in the book store: Moe would always come to visit Larry at the home. Larry would talk about it all day. If Moe was late, Larry would tell everyone things like, "That Moe- he must be stuck in some awful traffic!" Then when Moe would get there, Larry would be so happy he'd start crying. I think they really loved each other."
