MARLENE'S EYES
Paris gives Dietrich first class treatment.

Above are scans from Paris Magazine, one of the more elegant celeb and art publications of the 1930s. Marlene Dietrich popped up quite a bit in its pages (with eyes famously enhanced by Max Factor), and you also get images of Joan Walsh, photography from Rémy Duval, Roger Schall, Jablonowsky, and Fred Wallentin, all from 1934. We have more scans from an issue containing a couple of nice shots of Josephine Baker that we’ll get up soonish. Until then you can see more from Paris Magazine here.

Femmes Fatales Feb 5 2013
SCHALLEY DANCE?
And now for my talent I’m going to stun the room into total silence.

We’re reaching a bit farther back than usual for a femme fatale with this great Alfred Cheney Johnston image of Jacqueline Schalley, aka Jacqueline Schally, a Folies Bergère and Ziegfeld dancer who was once chosen the “Fairest Girl in France.” Based on that distinction she was sent to the U.S. to do a nationwide publicity tour before competing in New York City in an international beauty pageant. No word on whether she won, but then again, the judges probably never saw her like this. Photo is from 1927.

1913—Federal Reserve Created
The Federal Reserve Act is signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson, creating the Federal Reserve Bank. The Fed was created mainly in response to a series of bank panics, in 1873, 1893, and 1907, but over time its role has evolved and expanded, and the bank has been the subject of criticism from those who see it as a tool used to control the lives of workers.
1982—Jack Webb Dies
American actor Jack Webb, who was most famous his ongoing role in the television cop show Dragnet, dies of a heart attack at age 62. Webb had been sickly since the age of 6 after developing asthma, and had been ill many times during his life.
