YAK Car Pic of the Day

50 ford conv bad&beautyful

It was movie night in the YAK household on Wednesday, and we finally got around to watching 1952’s The Bad and the Beautiful, which starred Kirk Douglas, Lana Turner, Walter Pidgeon, and Dick Powell. Oh yeah, and Gloria Grahame as Rosemary, who played Dick Powell’s wife. That’s her in front of her new 1950 Ford Custom Deluxe convertible, which she just picked-up as a surprise during their trip to Hollywood. It took me half the movie to finally figure out that Grahame also played Violet in It’s A Wonderful Life. I see she passed away in 1981 at the young age of 57. And yes, I said young.
