Veronica Lake and Eddie Bracken, Bring on the Girls (1945)
I wish (SO BADLY) that Veronica Lake’s films were shown on television more often. Sure, those of us who collect our favorite star’s movies can find them on dvd (usually… the movie this photo promotes, Bring on the Girls is one I can’t find anywhere) , but when they’re shown on television, more people are exposed to them and can become fans of the star(s) and film(s).
It seems that only a few of Veronica’s movies are ever shown – I Married a Witch is shown around Halloween each year and a few of her film noirs with Alan Ladd can occasionally be found. Occasionally.
If you are able to find her films on tv or Prime Video, I hope you’ll watch as many as you find. She was extremely talented, undeniably beautiful, and had a very special screen presence… a unique one, all her own.
