Good Lord, he is a spitting image of my late father in law.
A more modern day  kind of chariot.
I used to sell Vespa's. They are the best scooter in the world.
Howard Ashman and Paige O'Hara behind the scenes of Beauty & The Beast:
The two most intense actors ever?
Paige O'Hara is from Fort Lauderdale. Before she changed her name, she used Donna Paige, which is her middle name.
Her mother was the drama teacher for Nova H.S., where she went to school also. A half century ago, having a drama department with an auditorium was a rare thing in a public school.
The year after she graduated, the theater class wanted to put on a musical for their big yearly production. Problem was, they did not have a singer. Donna agreed to come back as an alumna and play Fanny Brice in Funny Girl. A friend of mine that had completed his course work in his junior year, decided to hang out in the theater department for his senior year.
There was one more thing. The students wanted to present Funny Girl in a real theater.
My friend arranged to sell advertising to rent our local playhouse for the event.
He recognized Donna's singing skills back then. He didn't feel that the sound system of the playhouse was up to par for Donna. He thought it was OK for the orchestra and the other players.
As a favor, I lent him my theater speakers for their show.
They were my original pair of Altec Lansing Voice of the Theater speakers that I had built when I was sixteen. They were similar to the ones I have now, except that they were painted black.
Vintage, restored, Altec Lansing A7, VOTT's (Voice of the Theater) speakers. My original pair did not have the extra tweeters on top.
The house P.A. speakers were built onto the wall on either side of the stage. The Altec’s sat directly on stage, on either side.
My friend recorded the show and they made a double record album of the show.
If you have seen those flash drives, memory cards and ear buds with P.N.Y. on them they are his. P.N.Y. is his initials.

To mark the 7-Year Anniversary of this fascinating thread, today I shall begin endeavoring to contribute an expansive range of unique and historical images from the enchanting world of Movies and Television that I hope will add further interest and allure to this splendid 'Picture Show'. I have explored through every single page of this long thread and have taken into account all of the photographs that have been gathered together thus far, so as to ensure I don't post any repeats. However, there are quite a number of expired links littered throughout, so one cannot be absolutely sure as to what may or may not have been included previously. Either way I am confident people will find my additions to be most enjoyable and inspiring nonetheless.
But hey - enough of my yakkin'. Whaddaya say, let's boogie!...
