Missed you last week, Rex!

If I were that bear, I'd be smiling, too. Yo, Rex!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 1:24pm Parq:

via IMDB: Ann Sheridan won the "Search for Beauty" contest which carried with it a Paramount screen test. Signed to a contract at 18, she was put into a number of small roles under her real name of Clara Lou Sheridan. As she got better, her name was changed to Ann. In 1936, after two dozen films, she went to Warner Brothers, which billed her as the "Oomph Girl," a name she despised -- although she certainly looked the part. She was allowed to mature into a leading star who could be the girl next door or the tough-as-nails dame.
  1:25pm Tristan:

"She's my little loving booger?" Did I hear that right?
  1:30pm ScottC:

Maybe Jack Ruby can get a front row table if you pass him a few clams...
  1:31pm Wisconsin:

"Topless" was hilarious!
Avatar 1:32pm Mailman Tom:

"Topless" must have been a favorite tune in Jack Ruby's Dallas strip joint.

Who the HELL is playing guitar for Smilin' Joe?

Smilin' Joe?

That's the answer! A Ball and chain solves just about everything.

Hey, mate, don't hallucinate. Slogans ain't what they used to be.
