So did Louis B. Mayer, who commented: "A nice Jewish girl like Norma shouldn't go out with a roughneck like that." Rumor has it that it was Mayer who put the kibosh on co-starring Norma and George in a remake of A FREE SOUL.

Anyhoo, the relationship was the one of the three serious Raft romances where he didn't actively pursue marriage. But he was close to a father image to Norma's two children during the time he and Miss Shearer were a couple. Try to picture George Raft building sand castles on the beach with Norma's little daughter.

Nice start, Joe and I will visit it everyday and may not post at all ... but look at the pictures that you selected here thanks for starting up a new CANDIDS thread.

I won't be posting that much anymore to reflect my Rita Collection and I have already sold 28 photos yesterday and I'm taking the time off to reflect and I hope to resume posting pictures in a month from now.

Erik, funny story regarding DeNiro. Apparently when he was preparing for his role as Travis Bickle for TAXI DRIVER he got back behind the wheel of a cab and one night happened to pick up as a fare a fellow with whom he had studied acting. The fellow recognized DeNiro and asked what he was doing driving a cab. DeNiro replied that he was doing research for his upcoming movie. Even though DeNiro was an Academy Award winner and established actor, the fellow said warily, "Yeah, I know, Bobby. I've been there."
