1929 and 1930 and 2012?

In 1929 (top), Warner Baxter won best actor for his portrayal of The Cisco Kid in "In Old Arizona". And he apparently wore an ENORMOUS hat.

In 1930 (bottom), George Arliss won best actor for playing Bejamin Disraeli in "Disraeli".

I broke my own pact by not posting last week, but in my own defense, I spent most of last week away from my studio for the holidays! Lame excuse. As a result, there'll be another post this week. There has to be anyways, because I have another few small spots for FDU coming up very quickly, but I'd also like to get another actor or two in.

Here's to an excellent, illustration-filled 2012!! Picture making for the win!!


  1. Did Warner Baxter wear an enormous hat in the movie or to the Oscars? These are the important questions.

    The hair on the second dude is sweeet!

  2. Hahaha I WISH he wore that hat to the Oscars! Unfortunately he polished up, but he did seem to have kept the creepy mustache.
