I just received this from my childhood best friend, Art, and thought it would be good to preserve it here.


Here are some things I didn't know. When you see Pete the Pup, the dog with the black circle around his eye, it is not hair, but was placed there by a makeup artist. Who was the makeup artist? A young man named Max Factor. This makes a great trivia question at a party. Only we, the vintage people would remember.

Some things I bet a lot of you didn't know. I certainly didn't! .

what ever happened to those people This shows what a bad influence Hollywood was on actors even a long time ago.
