Men at Lunch (the movie trailer)

At the height of the Great Depression, eleven ironworkers sit eating lunch on a steel beam - boots dangling 850 feet above the sidewalk of 41st Street -- Central Park and the misty Manhattan Manhattan skyline stretching out behind them. The definitive counterpoint of epic and mundane -- a symbol of the indomitable working man. For 80 years, the identity of the eleven men -- and the photographer that immortalized them -- remained a mystery: their stories, lost in time, subsumed by the fame of the image itself. "Men at Lunch" is the revealing tale of an American icon, an unprecedented race to the sky and the immigrant workers that built New York.

A Yvonne De Carlo Tribute

Here is a song by the beautiful and recently deceased Yvonne De Carlo. Yvonne De Carlo (born Margaret Yvonne Middleton) (1922 - 2007) was a Canadian-born American film and television actress. Cast in "The Ten Commandments" (1956) in a leading role (as Sephora, Moses' wife), De Carlo was part of a major hit. The film was a huge success and De Carlo was among those to be praised for her restrained work. However, her most famous role that led her to pop culture legacy is of "Lily Munster" in the cult television series "The Munsters" (1964-1966), which allowed De Carlo to demonstrate a comic flair that her films had failed to utilize. She also played Lily in the 1966 feature film "Munster, Go Home" and the 1981 TV movie "The Munsters' Revenge". For her contribution to the motion picture industry and for her contribution to television, Yvonne De Carlo was honored with 2 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Benny Goodman Swings

This clip comes from "The Powers Girl" (1942).
