Three icons in one place: a great photo!

Spotted on Classic Movie Digest’s Facebook page:


Ladies and gentlemen, you have Elvis Presley (the King of Rock ‘n Roll), Frank Sinatra (the Chairman of the Board), and Fred Astaire (Gershwin’s favourite singer and the screen’s most graceful dancer) in one shot.

I wonder what the conversation was about?  And I wonder what Joe Esposito was thinking (one of Elvis’ Memphis Mafia, in the background between Elvis and Frank).

Presley and Sinatra appeared together on a TV special:

And on also on YouTube, someone has had fun putting a clip of Fred dancing with Rita Hayworth to one of Elvis’ hits:

Three fabulous guys from the golden age of film and music.

My home town – some photographs

My home town is Oldham, Greater Manchester. Once you leave the urban town, it is a beautiful place (50% countryside) and I hope these photographs, taken three years ago, do it justice.  The building is Hartshead Pike, which sits high above, looking down on to the residential areas.
