The peanut butter and banana sandwich was a favourite of Elvis Presley, who was renowned for his food cravings. Presumably Presley ate his with caramelised bananas and crispy bacon on Hawaiian bread grilled in bacon bacon fat. The sandwich is sold in many restaurants and is often referred to as ‘The Elvis Sandwich’ or ‘The Elvis’.

Oswald the Mickey Rabbit
Oswald the Mickey Rabbit

Oswald the Mickey Rabbit shows the demise of Oswald the Lucky Rabbit and the rise of Mickey Mouse. While part the legal rights to the former Universal Studio’s character (made by Walt Disney in de 20’s) have been sold to Disney in 2006, the fame and success Mickey has gained, will never be matched by Oswald. Unlucky bastard!

The Assumption of Marilyn
The Assumption of Marilyn

The Assumption of Marilyn is a sequel of sorts to ‘Holi Mary’. I felt that first paining didn’t depict the controversy and conspiracy evolving around Marilyn Monroe’s death well enough. Mainly the theories about the involvement of the Kennedy brothers, the FBI and her doctor.

Somewhere over the Barbiturates
Somewhere over the Barbiturates

Despite her professional triumphs, Judy Garland struggled immensely in her personal life, starting when she was a child. Her self-image was strongly influenced by film executives, who said she was unattractive and constantly manipulated her onscreen physical appearance. She followed the yellow pill road of barbiturates and alcohol, which ultimately led to her death at the age of 47.

You Little Bastard!!
You Little Bastard!!

While filming Rebel Without A Cause, James Dean bought the Porsche 550 Spyder. The name “Little Bastard” was given by Dean’s language coach, Bill Hickman. Actor Alec Guinness (Obi-Wan Kenobi) told Dean that the car looked “sinister”: “If you get in that car, you will be found dead in it by this time next week.” Seven days later, Dean got killed in a car crash. That “Little Bastard” not only killed James Dean, but killed and maimed others who came in contact with it causing many to say that the car was cursed. After years of accidents and deaths the curse continued when the California Highway Patrol decided that it had had enough of the “Little Bastard” and while transporting the car back to Barris, the car mysteriously vanished from the train wagon and has not been seen since…

Pin-Up-Down-Fall
Pin-Up-Down-Fall

Veronica Lake became a popular pin-up girl for soldiers during World War II. She changed her trademark peek-a-boo hairstyle at the urging of the government to encourage women working in war industry factories to adopt more practical, safer hairstyles. Although the change helped to decrease accidents involving women getting their hair caught in machinery, doing so may have damaged Lake’s career. She started to struggle with mental illness and alcoholism and lost her inner battles at the age of 50 due to kidney failure.

How Lucky was Oswald?
How Lucky was Oswald?

Oswald the Lucky Rabbit is a cartoon character created by Ub Iwerks and Walt Disney for Universal Pictures in the 1920s and 1930s. In 1928, Disney traveled to New York City in hopes of negotiating a more profitable contract with producer Charles Mintz of Universal Studios. Due to economic problems at the time, Mintz told Disney to settle for a 20 percent cut. Disney angrily decided to quit his job and therefore leave the character he created. He and Iwerks would go on to develop a new cartoon in secret, starring a new character which would soon become the most successful and popular cartoon character in film history and later become the foundation of a global entertainment empire. Universal Pictures continued creating Oswald cartoons until 1943.

Holi Mari
Holi Mari

Holi Mari reflects the final years of Marilyn Monroe’s life that were far from sacred and joyful and were marked by illness, personal problems, and a reputation for unreliability and being difficult to work with. The circumstances of her death, from an overdose of barbiturates, have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a “probable suicide”, the possibilities of an accidental overdose or a homicide have not been ruled out.

Humphrey got Cig

Once, after signing a long-term deal with Warner Bros., Humphrey Bogart had predicted with glee that his teeth and hair would fall out before the contract ended. By the mid-1950s, his health was failing. Bogart was a heavy smoker and drinker and had developed cancer of the esophagus. He almost never spoke of his failing health and refused to see a doctor until January 1956. Bogart died in 1957 at the age of 57.
