“PRC offered compensation with a starring role in a new series of films that they were launching called The Gas House Kids, a takeoff of the Dead End Kids films.”
“In 1946, Jan Grippo, now a producer, signed Huntz and Leo Gorcey to a long-term contract and started a new series of films for Monogram Studios called The Bowery Boys, with Gorcey as the leader and Hall as his right-hand man. By the time 1958 had rolled around, 48 feature films had been made.”

Debbie does school:
“There was one I had noticed, older than the others. Her teeth protruded perfectly–pushing the lips out like an open passionate flower. I wanted my mouth on that mouth. She wore a short skirt and her pantyhose revealed good legs
that kept crossing and uncrossing as she laughed and drank and tugged at her skirt which would just not stay down.”
“I disliked weekends. Everybody was out on the streets. Everybody was playing Ping-Pong or mowing their lawns or polishing their car or going to the supermarket or the beach or to the park. Crowds everywhere. Monday was my favorite day. Everybody was back on the job and out of sight. I decided to go to the racetrack [Hollywood Park] despite the crowd.”
“The only thing that helped was a young girl sitting across from us. She had a beautiful body, long good legs,and she wore a mini-skirt, with long stockings, a garter belt, and she had on pink panties
under the skirt. She even wore high heeled shoes.”
(Women by Charles Bukowski)
As good as this magazine looks, there was another issue that was even better.
(March 21, 1927 – July 1, 1968) was an American child actress, popular in Hollywood films during the 1930s and 1940s.
Weidler made her first film appearance in 1933. Over the next few years, she was cast in minor roles for RKO and Paramount Pictures. Neither studio made more extensive use of her, and when Paramount did not extend her contract, she was signed by MGM in 1938. Her first film for MGM was with their leading male star Mickey Rooney in Love Is a Headache (1938). The film was a success and Weidler was later cast in larger roles. She was one of the all-female cast of the 1939 film The Women, as Norma Shearer’s character’s daughter.
Her next major success was The Philadelphia Story (1940) in which she played Dinah Lord, the witty younger sister of Tracy Lord (Katharine Hepburn). As a teenager she was less popular with audiences.
After a string of box-office disappointments, her film career ended with the 1943 film Best Foot Forward. At her retirement from the screen at age 16, she had appeared in more than forty films, and had acted with some of the biggest stars of the day, including Clark Gable and Myrna Loy in Too Hot to Handle, Bette Davis in All This and Heaven Too and Judy Garland in Babes on Broadway.
Her older brother, saxophonist George Weidler, (1926–1989) was married to Doris Day from March 1946 to May 1949. Prior to her birth, Weidler’s German-born father, Alfred Weidler, (1886–1966) had been an architect in Hamburg, Germany, but moved the family to Los Angeles in 1923 and went on to become a model builder with 20th Century Fox. Her mother, Margaret (née Meyer), had been an opera singer in Germany.
On March 27, 1947, aged 20, Weidler married Lionel Krisel.
Weidler refused to be interviewed for the remainder of her life, living in private. She remained married to Krisel until her death on July 1, 1968, when she suffered a heart attack in Los Angeles at age 41.”
(July 26, 1895 – August 27, 1964), was an American comedienne who became internationally famous as the zany partner and comic foil of husband George Burns. For contributions to the television industry, Gracie Allen was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame at 6672 Hollywood Boulevard. She and George Burns are also both members of the Television Hall of Fame, having earned joint induction in 1988.
Gracie Allen was born in San Francisco, California.
She soon began performing Irish folk dances with her three sisters, who were billed as “The Four Colleens.” In 1909 Allen joined her sister, Bessie, as a vaudeville performer. At a performance in 1922 Allen met George Burns and the two formed a comedy act. The two were married on January 7, 1926, in Cleveland, Ohio.
Gracie Allen was born with heterochromia, giving her two different color eyes; one blue and one green. Birth date mystery
Depending on the source, Gracie Allen is alleged to have been born on July 26 in 1895, 1896, 1902 or 1906. All public records held by the City and County of San Francisco were destroyed in the earthquake and great fire of April 1906. Among Allen’s signature jokes was a dialogue in which Allen would claim that she was born in 1906, her foil would press her for proof or corroborating information; she would say that her birth certificate had been destroyed in the earthquake, her foil would point out that she was born in July but the earthquake was three months earlier in April, and Allen would simply smile and reply “Well, it was an awfully big earthquake.”
Yesterday got back from work, ate spaghetti washed down with any suitable red wine such as Chianti –they all pretty much taste the same to me, and after showering, I usually jump on the computer. Pleased to see about a dozen emails. Must be from YouTube as one of my videos exploded in popularity
Alrighty! me and my partner had to come up with 5 questions each so there will be 10, but they shouldnt be too hard we think 🙂 thank you!
1.) What inspires you for your photos?
Anything that excites me such as retro glamour or fetish clothes: nylons, garter belts, high heel shoes, but i prefer the school teacher-librarian look as opposed to slutty. Penney (my webmaster at brietv.com described my look as sassy-sexy. Also, i like a sissy little girl look, but am not a pedophile. I adore mary jane shoes, T-straps, sissy socks, etc. such as a teen or little girl might wear.
Would like to see more mature women dressing as little girls!
2.) Is your name really Brie or is it an artists name?
Brie is not really my name. Its inspired by a porno film called “The Budding of Brie” starring Hillary Summers.
3.) how many different outfits and wigs do you have?
I’ve had to throw away many outfits as i have no where to store them, but once i have photos and/or videos of me wearing them, its like i have them forever. . .
Wigs: Peggysue, Velma, curly glamour wig, and i had a wig that came with pig tails.
4.) What is your everyday life like? do you have a family?
I live with my mom like the great artist Andy Warhol.
Shacked up once with a gal just to see what it was like.
and like what do you do for a living?
Don’t want to say so as to protect my secret identity.
5.) Has anyone ever hated on your art?
For sure, but enough people love it to keep me going.
My first camera could only do photos, then my next camera could also do videos but no sound, my last camera does excellent photos, and produces nice one minute videos with sound. I also do some hack writing. I don’t draw.
if they did how did you feel and how do you deal with it?
I just ignore the galoots.
6.) Do you dress up in public or is this strictly an art thing?
I don’t go out in public fearing that i might get in trouble with the law–for example using the women’s bathroom!
There was a Bettie Davis movie in which she looked 20 years younger than her actual age. At the end of the movie she was 40 years old, when her current boy friend became interested in her 20 year old daughter!
9.) Who takes your photos? is it a camera on a timer or do you work with someone?
Not telling. I don’t ever want anyone to be able to do what I’ve accomplished! Sure there are younger and cuter males out there, but they would have a really hard time doing what i have done. For example Elli Kasuga in Japan has the prettiest little girl outfits, and is the best at what “she” does, but i have more of a range.
10.) Me and my partner noticed you have almost the same facial expression in every photo, but different poses. Is this your signature look or was it just by coincidence?
At first i kept my eyes closed because of the flash from the camera. I tried smiling, but it looks more like a smirk.
I should have more shots of me from the side, but i have a bad habit of looking at the camera.
Thank you again, for your time, we are looking forward to your answers 🙂
