Because it’s ANZAC Day Down Under…
My grandfather Ted, back row second from the left. Taken at a training camp in Egypt, en route to Gallipoli in 1915 as a reinforcement. He later transferred to the 1st Machine Gun batallion.
I’ve always wondered how many of the boys in this photo survived the war. 
 

Reblogging myself as it’s ANZAC day again today.

At Paramount, Josef von Sternberg cast a stunner named Theresa Harris—glamorously dressed as she sang—in a suggestive black nightclub sequence in Thunderbolt.

Bogle, Donald. Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams: The Story of Black Hollywood (2005).

I’ve shared part of this clip before, but this is a longer version I found on Youtube. This movie—Thunderbolt was released during the “Pre-Code” era of film. ThunderboltHearts in Dixie, and Hallelujah were all released in 1929 and each created a new spark of hope for black entertainers of the time.

Also in this scene: Curtis Mosby and His Blues Blowers, a very popular 1920’s/1930’s band; and although I’m not completely sure, I believe the actress speaking in the beginning (wearing the uniform) is none other than Madame Sul-Te-Wan.
