Ooh, your helmet is so big

I received this vintage ’60s card today from Sean, who sent it to me after he found out I was looking for work (and, if you’re reading this, feel free to hire me) as a “feel-better” card.  In truth, it does make me feel kinda tingly.  Neither of us could find much online about her except for a few vintage postcards and calendars for sale, all of which appear to feature photos from the same shoot.  My guess is that she was an up-and-coming actress posing for publicity photos, and that she turned out to be not-so-up-and-coming.

Sean writes: “I found her at a great postcard shop here in Madrid that has tens of thousands of vintage cards plus lots of other collectables. I’ll be blogging about it… when I find the time. Which reminds me, you need to blog more often!”  Well, now that I’m only spending 40 hours a week looking for a job instead of 50-60 hours a week doing one, I’m back in the blogging habit.  Not only is it fun, but it keeps my collection organized!

    Bonjour,
    Je vois que tu parles très bien le Français.
    Donc je vais commenter ton post dans la langue de Molière:
    Aujourd’hui, en France, la “une” (the front page) de tous les journaux etaient les 50 ans de la poupée Barbie. Une autre égerie sur le retour (up and coming).

    Editor’s Translation: I see that you speak very good French. So I’ll post your comment in the language of Moliere: Today, in France, on the front page of all the newspapers was “50 Years of the Barbie Doll.” Another up-and-coming muse.
