Oh, Harnisch, why don’t you let go of this and move on to something fun? Because this is fun. At least my idea of fun. I went down into the archives last night and rooted around in the Mary Astor photos. Most of them are from “The Maltese Falcon” era with a smattering of pictures from the silents but I found a few from the late 1950s and early 1960s, though nothing from “Return to Peyton Place.”


To be frank, I have a hard time convincing myself these are the same lady.

The good news is that I found another page of her diary. She met George Kaufman and "I fell like a ton of bricks as only I can fall," she says.
