Cooking With the Stars!

Ready for some Vanilla Marlow? Or are you more in the mood for Enchilladas?

If either -- or both -- sound appetizing to you, then head on over to the Features section, and get cooking with Mary, Doug, Jean, Ramon, and the rest of the gang!

From my collection of silent movie-related items comes recipes from Midgie Knight's Hollywood Hundred: Famous Recipes of the Movie Stars.

More than likely a PR stunt, nonetheless I found some of the recipes to be a fascinating look into the era and the packaging of the stars (look! they're just like us!), an aspect of filmdom that hasn't really changed much over the years.

Whether or not Doug and Mary really sat in the kitchen and ate his Gnocckis a la Romaine, it's still fun to think they did.

Another update of note:
As I go through the articles in the News & Notes section, I've been adding new links that update the article. First one up: links related to the archaelogical dig for Cecil B. DeMille's Ten Commandments. I thought it would be interesting to see what's happened (whenever possible) since the article's original date of publication.
