Vision and Bite Update; No great fall-out from the removal of the wisdom (apart from the actual tooth) but my left eye is not as good as it was over the weekend. Hey, diddle diddle! Onwards, upwards.

‘Digital collage using a vintage theatre poster for the musical comedy The Earl and the Girl and several pieces of ephemera in my collection. Produced by William Greet, it was first staged in 1903 at the Adelphi Theatre, London, before transferring to the Lyric Theatre in 1904. The show was also produced on Broadway in 1905 with Eddie Foy in the lead. The book was by the then well-known actor-manager Seymour Hicks, with music by Ivan Caryll and lyrics by Percy Greenbank.’

This enchantress  was the famous late 19th and early 20th century actress and singer Miss Marie Tempest [1864-1942], who is referred to in the description on the back of my original print as ‘the prima donna of the English stage’ and possessing ‘a very beautiful voice which has had the training it deserves’.

I imagined a faded portrait in a frame that has suffered neglect and fire damage with a hint of gold breaking through. Naturally, I imagined no such thing but this is what came out when I faffed around in Photoshop with a couple of textures from 2 Lil’ Owls: 2LO Confetti 6 (Normal), 2LO – Crackle 11 (Multiply).

Theatrical aficionados might be interested to learn that the actress was the original Judith Bliss in Noël Coward’s Hay Fever. She was made a Dame in  1937.


“Hitler has taken nearly everything from me but my life, but you can’t live on regret. You’ve got to live for the present and future, not the past.”
She was forced to sell her art collection after losing her home in a German air raid during WWII. IMDb

This is a digital collage from 2012 in which I used a vintage theatre poster for the musical comedy The Earl and the Girl as my starting point and layered it with several pieces of ephemera in my theatre collection, including a black & white postcard of the actor-manager Sir Seymour Hicks.

The above is not the postcard I used but another one for sale at my First Night Vintage store on Zazzle. Why? Because I don’t seem to have uploaded the other one for sale!

The Earl and the Girl was produced by William Greet and first staged in 1903 at the Adelphi Theatre, London, before transferring to the Lyric Theatre in 1904. The show was also produced on Broadway in 1905 with Eddie Foy in the lead. The book was by Hicks, with music by Ivan Caryll and lyrics by Percy Greenbank.

There may well be more postcards around of actress Pauline Chase than any other early 20th century actress! Certainly they were everywhere when I began my theatrical collection at the age of twelve. A second-hand bookshop (sadly, no longer extant) on Richmond Hill in Surrey, was a regular haunt and this image of Miss Chase was bought there. The actress is playing Saint Joan in A Pageant of Great Women at the Scala Theatre 1909.

Take care and keep laughing!
