Girls and Guns

Martha Gellhorn and Ernest Hemingway

 Our recent post about Ernest Hemingway and Martha Gellhorn brought to mind the above photo.  We thought it was time for another installment of Girls and Guns.

Slim Keith

Marlene Dietrich

Carole Lombard

Helen Mirren


  1. The bookseller Heywood Hill, Ltd, announce in their Summer List an extremely attractive new book by the Duchess of Rutland, on the culture of shooting at her extraordinary estate - I am very keenly anticipating its arrival, but based on the shop's advice I can't help but recommend it to you. The portrait of Carole Lombard, meanwhile, as in the case of all such memories of her, only makes one wish she were still with us - such an approachably naturally good humoured lady she was. The inclusion of Helen Mirren, here, is deliciously satiric.

  2. I am your newest follower, just had a photo on my blog of my 4 year old granddaughter at the alamo..this post is good. I look forward to reading it.
