Postcard from France

This old, unused postcard of a lady with her Pierrot boudoir doll is marked "Made in France" and "Paris".


  1. What a wonderful find! I'm especially intrigued by the woman's afro-like hairstyle. Do you have any idea...was this a trend back then? Have you run across similar images of 1920s (or 30s?)Parisian women?

  2. I have seen other photos of women, mostly European, with similar un-coiffed hair. Nazimova, Pola Negri, and Raquel Meller come to mind, as well as American women, Clara Bow and Mae Murray.

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.

Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
