Alice White and Bunnies




I am not sure why 1930s actress Alice White was made to pose with bunnies so often, but she certainly looked fetching with them.

I daresay it's because of the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.

Go to the newspaper link and scroll down. There is a column "I Dare Say". I dare you to be able to identify ANY of the people described.

I doubt the top image came from a mainstream newspaper or magazine.

That second photo must have been taken during rehearsals for the girls' version of "Harvey."

@JohnD1 -- Sorry to disappoint, but I knew two right off the bat, suspect I know one other, and think one is slightly garbled in its facts.

The Mayo brothers (William and Charles(?)) made millions as doctors and left most of it to their clinic.

Mark Pickford won 1929 best actress Oscar for her first talkie.

I think the person who was regarded as a prophet and seer who Roosevelt refused to meet was Gibran (sp?).

As to the discovery of a planet, I think they probably mean Lowell 'discovered' Pluto, but it wasn't actually seen until years later. Actually, someone else did a theoretical discovery years earlier. Lowell looked for it but didn't recognize it when he was able to photograph it.

@RobK -- Pictures like that weren't uncommon. They fell into a sort of "it's only dirty if you have a dirty mind" category. If it could seem like it was from an age of innocence, it was fair game. Movie studios' holiday promo pics were rife with such things.

I'm sticking with Grace Slick's version of the White Rabbit.
