Random Image Dump #5

A new year calls for a fresh batch of random images. Cheers!

German actress Elke Sommer and, um, ‘69. Ahem. Bravo to the author of Sommer’s fun, informative, and purple prose-laced IMDb biography, which begins: “This gorgeous Teutonic temptress was one of Hollywood’s most captivating imports of the 1960s.“

National treasure Carla Gugino as Silk Spectre, in Watchmen (2009).

Another day in the Bronx, New York, in the 1970s, when the Daily News ran the headline, “Ford to City: Drop Dead,” and the City almost did just that.

Joe Bob Briggs and his first Mail Girl, Honey Michelle Gregory, introducing our impressionable young minds to cult horror movies on TNT’s MonsterVision in the 1990s.

The resemblance of this guns-a-blazing, Golden Age comic book heroine to Jane Russell really makes me yearn for a balls-out action film starring Russell that, sadly, only exists in my dreams. Illustrated by Bob Lubbers.

Legendary frontman Eddie Vedder, onstage with Pearl Jam, 1996.

And here’s a bonus Pearl Jam shot, taken by Charles Peterson during the band’s European tour, 1996: Eddie gives Mike McCready a lift, while Stone Gossard (L) and Jeff Ament (R) look on and laugh.

Caesar Romero yucking it up as the Joker in Batman. He couldn’t be bothered to shave his mustache for the part, and I kind of love that.

Actress Janee Mitchell leads a gaggle of bloodthirsty undead in this publicity still from Scream Blacula Scream (1973).

Jean Frisano X-Men cover art for French comics magazine Strange, circa 1980.

Pulp cover art by Italian illustrator Franco Picchioni, for Patrick McRoy’s Violenza in nero, 1966.
