Pity the poor starlet of yesteryear. If she was young, pretty and oh-so-hopeful for full-fledged fame and fortune, she had to submit to some pretty humiliating photo sessions - all in the name of publicity. Once they were famous, I'll bet these gals would not have considered these photos too much of a treat.

|Silent sweetie Bessie Love puts on her best |
Halloween smile (love the shooties)
|Clara Bow was a real trouper and sat for seemingly |
endless Halloween photos. Here she looks especially adorable.
|Nancy Carroll was another cutie who seemed to |
have to pose with a plethora of pumpkins
|Another pumpkin pose from the lovely Nancy Carroll|
|Beautiful Anita Page was always ready, willing and |
able when it came to nutty publicity photos
|Poor Joan Crawford - not her best look|
|The very feline Paulette Goddard (again - love the shoes)|
|Even Ida Lupino had to be blonde and cute and pose with a gourd|
|Pretty Pier Angeli is looking for a good script.....|
|Ann Miller confides that she is ready for her close-up|
|And here she is - looking pretty terrific|
|Doris Day is always a treat 365 days a year|
And just in case you were wondering if any male beauties had to endure such posing....well, this is the best I could come up with!

Wishing you all a Halloween filled with thrills, chills, fun tricks and even better treats!
