You can't hide from the FBI.
Talk about a shitty day. The artful above photo shows Eleanor Kindig, who was arrested for giving false information to the FBI. The Compton, California native disappeared, and after being found in New Mexico, spun a fanciful tale about being abducted. She had run away to avoid legal troubles back in California. Thanks to her fib, her troubles were just starting. That was today in 1952, and the photo is from the Los Angeles Examiner collection held at the University of Southern California.
Tinkle, tinkle, little star.
Joyce Compton, née Olive Joyce Compton, launched her Hollywood career in 1925 and managed a few uncredited roles before being named one of the Western Association of Motion Picture Advertisers’ Baby Stars in 1926. WAMPAS Baby Stars was an award that each year singled out thirteen young actresses on the cusp of fame, and Compton went on to appear in well over one-hundred films during more than five decades in show business. The shot above is a First National Pictures promo from 1926 showing her modeling a tinkle garter, which was a garter belt with bells on it. To what end? Don’t ask us. It was the twenties, so maybe they helped women be heard above all the roaring.
