What Cool Used To Be

Marlon Brando's screen test in "Rebel Without A Cause" (1955)

Last week my brother,Tom, forwarded an email to me in which the subject box read, What Cool Used To Be. After viewing the photographs and reading the captions, I suddenly felt the desire to share it with you guys.

Thanks, Tom!

It's funny how as we get older, we often look back on each decade and think about how certain things were much cooler then. I remember my grandparents doing it; my parents doing it; now I'm doing it. And I'm certain that the generation of today will one day look back and say, "It was much cooler back then."

But don't you find it ironic how especially when it comes to things such as fashion, design, and even music, they seem to reinvent themselves? The present often borrows from the past because let's face it, some things will always remain cool.

Please enjoy some cool glimpses from the 40's, 50's, and 60's...


Gorgeous necklines of the 1950's


Clint Eastwood with actresses Olive Sturgess and Dani Crayne in San Francisco (1954)


The original way to "text" in class (1944). Ha!..I love this one!


Teenagers and their first car (1950's)


This is how teenagers dated in the 1950's


High school fashion feature in Life Magazine (1969)


Sophia Loren


A young boy stealing the show, back when middle school kids knew how to dance (1950)


Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip at the horse races (1968)


Audrey Hepburn at a premiere on September 14, 1953

The definition of old school cool. Cary Grant in the 1950's.
What a handsome man he was!

Have a cool Monday, y'all!

Update: Hey everyone! Just wanted to let you know that I won't be posting on Friday because I've had a very busy week at work, plus, I have this weekend off (yahooo!) and will be taking an eagerly anticipated day trip out of the city on Saturday. I'll be back to posting on Monday. Have a faaaaaaabulous weekend! X

  1. Where do I start...lol. You took me back a 'few' years with this one, Ron. Lovely!


    Loved the picture of the girl hiding behind her schoolbook. Oh my, how many times did I do that! My teacher finally punished me for it. Ouch! Happy days - or something!


    Low necklines made a comeback with a vengeance didn't they. We thought there wasn't a lot left to the imagination then; little did we know it would get worse - or should I say better?


    Nice to see shots of Paul Newman (I had his picture pinned on the wall behind my work desk for years) and Clint Eastwood and, of course, Sophie and Audrey and the Queen. I'm glad you picked out the best for this post, which I loved. It was good to be reminded of what used to be. Well done, you.


    Happy Monday to you x

  2. Everything old is new again! I was in a Ralph Lauren store yesterday and I told my husband I thought we'd been time warped back to 1985.

    These photos are beautiful and classy, Ron. I love the Paul Newman one. Doesn't the photo remind you of Matthew McConaughey in the Lincoln ads? (Which, btw, make me LOL every time, due to the way he talks and the dialogue).

  3. Oh Ron, I loved this post! The picture of the "texting" back in 1944 made me laugh because how true that is! Lovely shot of Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn. God, the one of Paul Newman is hot! And what beautiful necklines in that first photo. What you said about fashion is so true, it reinvents itself because it's classic!


    Great post, Ron! Have a wonderful week x


    I've been watching the weather report on TV and saw how cold it is there. Stay warm.

  4. Ron, so many of these photographs brought back memories for me because I was a child of early 50's. The ones of Paul Newman and Cary Grant are so beautiful and classic! Did you ever read the book that Cary Grant's daughter wrote? It's a wonderful book that exposes a side of Cary Grant that was so impressive. He retired from show business after his daughter was born so that he could focus all his time and energy in being a father. He was married to Dyan Cannon at the time.

  5. Good morning Valerie!

    "Loved the picture of the girl hiding behind her schoolbook. Oh my, how many times did I do that! My teacher finally punished me for it. Ouch! Happy days - or something!"

    HAHAHAHAHA! Yes, I did the same thing and can't tell you how many times I was caught be the nuns in Catholic school. Bad Ronnie!

    "Low necklines made a comeback with a vengeance didn't they. We thought there wasn't a lot left to the imagination then; little did we know it would get worse - or should I say better?"



    Yes they did. And you're right, little did we know it would get worse. But back then the necklines might have be low cut, but they remained "classically" sexy. Nowadays they're just blatant.


    Isn't the picture of the Queen faaaaabulous? My mother so admired Queen Elizabeth. And isn't the shot of Paul Newman gorgeous?


    Thanks so much for stopping by, dear lady. Happy Monday to you!

  6. Oh, my God, Ron, I can't believe how beautiful these photos are! Cary Grant, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood, Sophia Loren--this isn't cool, this is freaking awesome!!


    I think people in every generation have a tendency to look back at the past and remember as the time when we got everything right. Hard to believe, but people at one time held a dim view of Paul Newman and Marlon Brando.


    But I still prefer those guys to what we have today!


    And I can't believe teen-aged boys wore suits and ties on dates! I don't dress like that for my job!

  7. "Everything old is new again! I was in a Ralph Lauren store yesterday and I told my husband I thought we'd been time warped back to 1985."

    You are so right, everything old IS new again! And yes, anything I see Ralph Lauren merchandise, it immediately takes me back to the 80's! I used to wear Ralph Lauren Polo cologne!

    'I love the Paul Newman one. Doesn't the photo remind you of Matthew McConaughey in the Lincoln ads?"



    OMG...I never thought of that but you are spot on. Yes, the photo does remind me of Matthew McConaughey! In fact, it looks like it COULD be him!

  8. Hey there Babs!

    " It's funny how some of these photos don't bring back memories for me, In the 50's we had no TV's, therefore not Americanised at all. We didn't have Soda bars?"

    Isn't it interesting to see the differences in Europe versus America? Soda bars were very big back in the 50's, however, you don't see them much anymore. And it's a shame because they were SO COOL!

    "One thing we did have in common is shapely women and well dressed men. I would love those fashions to return, instead of the scruffy attire a lot of men wear now."



    AMEN! I sooooooooo agree!

  9. Hola Denise!

    "The picture of the "texting" back in 1944 made me laugh because how true that is!"

    That picture made me laugh as well. Isn't it priceless? And I can still remember me doing that in that 50's when I was in Catholic school and getting into so much trouble from the nuns.

    "God, the one of Paul Newman is hot!"

    HA! Yes, I agree!

    "I've been watching the weather report on TV and saw how cold it is there. Stay warm."



    Yes, it's been exceptionally cold the past two weeks. The weather has been very chaotic. One week it's freezing, the next it's sunny with higher temps. We got some snow this past weekend as well, but it's already melted.


    Have a super week, girl. And thanks for stopping by!

  10. Hey there Elaine!

    "Did you ever read the book that Cary Grant's daughter wrote?"

    No I haven't, but I've seen it in Barnes & Noble and have also seen interviews with his daughter about the book. I really need to read it because it really sounds like an interesting book. His daughter looks a lot like him, but also like Dyan Cannon. They were such attractive people and their daughter got the best of both!

    "Stunning shot of Sophia Loren!"



    isn't it gorgeous? So sexy!

  11. The thing that stands out immediately to me in these photos, Ron, is how THIN people were in the '50s and '60s! I don't think they thought they were, but oh my, people carry much more weight as a whole today, don't you think?

    You've chosen some great shots here. I love the one with the bobbie-sox and the passing of notes in class. That's a way of life today's kids won't know -- nor will they ever be caught red-handed and forced to read that message to the entire class, ha!

    The pic of Paul Newman is gorgeous and kind of reminds me of the guy who advertises for Lincoln today. Did you forget Robert Redford, Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor....Well, of course, you couldn't list ALL of them! There were far too many, huh?!

    Great post, my friend -- have a super Monday!

  12. Ron, being a child of the 80's, it was so COOL to see these photographs from past decades. I have always thought I was born in the wrong time because whenever I see images from the 40's through the 60's, I feel more connected.


    Love the shot of the teenagers and their first car. Damn, and what a great car it is. Love the wheels and hubcaps. And I like how the guys are just sitting there natural.


    My other favorite one is of Paul Newman.


    As always, interesting and enjoyable post, dude!

  13. Hey there Rob!

    "Cary Grant, Paul Newman, Clint Eastwood, Sophia Loren--this isn't cool, this is freaking awesome!!"

    When my brother send me the email, I knew I had to post these photographs on my blog. Aren't they faaaabulous?

    "I think people in every generation have a tendency to look back at the past and remember as the time when we got everything right. Hard to believe, but people at one time held a dim view of Paul Newman and Marlon Brando."

    I think you're exactly right about that. We don't seem to really enjoy the decades we live in until we get older and look back; appreciating what they were.

    "And I can't believe teen-aged boys wore suits and ties on dates! I don't dress like that for my job!"



    HA! It's so funny you said that because I was watching an old I Love Lucy episode over the weekend and notice that Fred and Rickie BOTH had suits on in the middle of the day; just hanging out in the Ricardo's apartment!

    " Ron, is how THIN people were in the '50s and '60s! I don't think they thought they were, but oh my, people carry much more weight as a whole today, don't you think?"

    Very interesting observation! And you're right. But what I think is ironic is that today society seems to be so obsessed with working out, eating healthier but yet, we do seem to see more weight as whole today.

    "I love the one with the bobbie-sox and the passing of notes in class. That's a way of life today's kids won't know -- nor will they ever be caught red-handed and forced to read that message to the entire class, ha!"

    OMG...me too! You must have gone Catholic school, am I right? Because I did and had to do the same thing!

    Yes, the picture of Paul Newman does look like Matthew McConaughey. In fact, one of other readers (Bijoux) said the same thing.

    ". Did you forget Robert Redford, Clark Gable, Vivien Leigh, Elizabeth Taylor....Well, of course, you couldn't list ALL of them! There were far too many, huh?!"



    Yes, and you mentioned MANY of my favorites. Vivien Leigh to me, was the most beautiful woman ever. And so talented!

  15. Hiya Matt!

    " I have always thought I was born in the wrong time because whenever I see images from the 40's through the 60's, I feel more connected."

    It's funny you mentioned that because I feel the same way. I'm a child of the 50's, but have always felt more connected to the 30's and 40's.

    "Love the shot of the teenagers and their first car. Damn, and what a great car it is. Love the wheels and hubcaps. And I like how the guys are just sitting there natural."



    That photograph reminds me of something you would see on the TV show, Happy Days", which took place in the 50's!


    The photo of Paul Newman is so candid and natural.

  18. The definition of cool has certainly changed...or perhaps not as it depends on perhaps the generation being questioned. Yes, Marlon Brando was the epitome of cool while Audrey Hepburn is the essence of classy. And these are just my opinions. My mother thought Montgomery Clift was "It" so much she named my brother after him, ha!

  19. Wow. I'm so glad I grew up in that era. Marlon Brando looks so much like Warren Beatty in that gif. What wonderful photos. Damn right we were cool!

  20. Ron, as one of your other readers shared, the photograph of Paul Newman is an uncanny resemblance to Matthew McConaughey. That is such a beautiful photograph! And I agree with you, Cary Grant was one handsome man. Classy and very cool!


    I love the one of the girls passing a note as texting Lol! The pic of Sophia Loren is gorgeous. That's what I call one sultry woman. Love the expression on the kid dancing. He is so into it!

    You made a very good point there, Suzi! The definition of cool depends on the generation being questioned. Marlon Brando was definitely cool, while Audrey Hepburn was sooooooooooooo classy!

    "My mother thought Montgomery Clift was "It" so much she named my brother after him, ha!"

    Robert, it's so funny because I didn't even notice the resemblance until Bijoux pointed it out. He and Matthew look so alike; especially in that photograph.

    "I love the one of the girls passing a note as texting Lol!"

    Yes, and I did that as kid myself. And boy, did I get in trouble.

    I love the "high school fashions" on the cover of Life Magazine, circa 1969. There's something pretty hot about hippie chicks, and that's the vibe I'm picking up there. Although, I have to admit there's a fine line between hippie chic and some of the polyester monstrosities from the 70s. Let's just say I won't be showing you any old pics of myself from back in those halcyon Tang- and Big Wheel- fueled days.

  25. Oh gosh. Thank Tom for us. What an awesome thing to pass on. THANKS TOM!! :-)
    (In case you get busy and forget. LOL)
    I just gotta tell ya....I wasn't convinced we were taking a "look back" by the neckline photo...seems it's fashionables to dress in attire that looks very much like what they were wearing in the photo. Complete with the hair, no less.
    Wonderful photos of wonderful times. Gosh, I did a lot of texting in school and didn't even know it.
    And then there was Cary Grant, looking quite dapper. Suit, tie, vest, overcoat and hat in hand.....omg-- I could look at that photo for quite some time...wow, what a looker...
    I was gonna mention the tights on the gals, but I think I'll look at Cary Grant a bit more instead. LOL
    Hope you've enjoyed your Monday!!

    Oh, this was just great Ron! I loved every one of these photos.


    Is it a sign of getting old when things from many years ago look SO much better than what is presently the norm? I don't know...maybe, but maybe not.


    I see so many uncool, downright sloppy looking people everywhere now. Where has COOL and also classy gone to? Oh, another thing I dislike now so much, girls who go around dressed like hookers (and aren't hookers!!!) showing ALL, leaving nothing to the imagination, come on... a little decorum pllllllease! ;-)


    but these photos above are the epitome of all things beautiful and timeless, IMO!


    The one of Paul Newman, I had never seen him with a beard before, I think he was better looking clean shaven but he's still gorgeous in this one. And oh so lovely Audrey, did she ever look anything but angelic? Such a beautiful, graceful woman. Gone much too soon, sadly.


    I'm so glad your brother sent your these and that you in turn shared with your readers!

  38. Helloooooooo there Geraldine!

    "Is it a sign of getting old when things from many years ago look SO much better than what is presently the norm? I don't know...maybe, but maybe not."

    Yes, I think so because it seems that every generation says the same thing.

    "I see so many uncool, downright sloppy looking people everywhere now. Where has COOL and also classy gone to?"

    I'd have to agree with you about that because I see the same thing. And the people I do see who seem to dress 'classy' are from a completely different generation.

    "The one of Paul Newman, I had never seen him with a beard before, I think he was better looking clean shaven but he's still gorgeous in this one."



    I had never seen him with a beard either because I was so used to seeing him clean shaven. But I have to say, I think he looks kinda sexy with the facial hair. And yes, wasn't Audrey the epitome of beauty and grace? Gone WAY too soon. She was only 63.

  40. Hey there Jay!

    "Love the 1950s necklines (I am SO envious of those)..."

    Aren't they FAB? To me they were so classy, and at the same time sexy.

    " Cary Grant of course. Old school cool indeed. Nobody was cooler, and yes, he was a very handsome!"

    He was so debonair! My mother just loved him, so I grew up watching many of his films. What I loved about Cary Grant was that he was very talented when it came to comedy AND drama. "Penny Serenade" was one of my favorite films of his because he nailed the humor but was also very sincere with the dramatic part of the story. His performance was so touching.

    And I don't know if you knew this, but was from Bristol, England!

    Thanks so much for stopping by, my friend. Have a great weekend!

  41. Yes, I did know he was from England. It's really funny to contemplate that, because he was so 'American' to us as kids. I still love his movies, and you're right; he really nailed the comedy, and could also do sincere. He was certainly talented.

  42. "Yes, I did know he was from England. It's really funny to contemplate that, because he was so 'American' to us as kids."

    Jay, I was actually going to mention that same thing in my previous comment to you. For many, many years, I thought he was American because he really didn't have a distinct accent. But even more so, he seemed very American, didn't he?

His fingers are REALLY big and long, not that it MEANS anything... but ummmmm ..... doesn't look like he is really packing. I'm just sayin!

  56. "I think that pic of Audrey Hepburn was at the release of Roman Holiday - when she cut her hair short! "

    Benze, I think you may be right about that! And maybe she was going to the premiere of the movie.

    "Love the old styles & isn't it great wider hips & bigger booties are coming back in style again?"

    Yes, it sure is. It's when bodies where more natural and didn't have that 'gym body' look.

    Thanks so much for stopping by and catching up on my posts. You're a sweetheart! Hope all is going well and that you're feeling better.

  57. " Wasn't this movie the one with all the controversy about Meg & her co-star? Where Meg & her hubby split up? Or am I thinking of the wrong film?"


    Yes, you may be right. I think she was married to Dennis Quaid at the time.

  58. The film which sparked controversy over Meg and her co-star Russell Crowe was Proof of Life. She was still at the peak of her powers in French Kiss and didn't it show?
