When You're Smiling...

...the whole world smiles with you.


  1. What a great trio and what a great photo!

  2. Love, love, love Margaret Leighton---and I am assuming that her slatternly attire was in the service of one of Tennessee Williams's plays. Would you happen to know which play that was?

    1. My dear Mr. Worthington, it was "Slapstick Tragedy," two one act plays.

  3. WHY have I never seen this before? It's too wonderful...

    (And how did Steve Jobs finesse the product placement of that distorted Apple logo above Judy's head?)

  4. Oh, my goodness, what a fantastic photograph. I, too, adore Margaret Leighton. Last winter I had the great good fortune of seeing the Ohio Theater's splendid revival of "The Mutilated" (one half of "Slapstick Tragedy") with Mink Stole and Penny Arcade (both of whom were top notch, by the way). Such a wonderful, strange, outrageous, beautiful play. In reading the program I learned that the original production of "Slapstick Tragedy" had been on Broadway, which I found utterly preposterous. What COULD those producers have been thinking? And then I read that divine Margaret Leighton had played Trinket in that Broadway run. Unbelievable. What an evening that opening night must have been.
