October is my favorite month ... autumn in Indiana and horror movies on TCM. I am working on entries for two blogathons this month: Speakeasy's Val Lewton blogathon for which I am doing my take on I Walked With A Zombie; and the Classic TV Blog Association's Horror Host blogathon, for which I am doing a piece on my favorite TV ghoul, Sammy Terry's Nightmare Theatre. It's going to take some time and effort to do them up right. So, for the interim, here's something that takes no effort to speak of. I can't remember why it occurred to me, but I think seeing movie stars in the bathtub is fun.
Sorry, all you hopeful men -- I forgot to mention that it was not about women in the tub, didn't I? Well, just for the male readers, here's something anyway...
Tragically, I wasn't able to find a single picture of Errol Flynn in the tub -- now that would be my idea of fun.

|This little piggy will go to market clean!|
(Bob Hope in "Son of Paleface")

I believe he has a large framed version on his living room wall
|He doesn't look too happy -- and boy, what scummy water!|
(Clint Eastwood in "High Plains Drifter")
|A modern gangster's bubble bath ... cigar, drink , AC and a TV remote|
(Al Pacino in "Scarface")
|I'm sure Dana Andrews would rather be looking at Gene Tierney|
(Clifton Webb in "Laura")
|She looks a lot better out of the tub than in |
(Jack Nicholson and nameless ... uh ... ladies in "The Shining")
