The other day I stumbled upon these wonderful old photos while I was researching vintage kitchens. I love seeing some of my favorite stars and celebrities cookin’ up somethin’ tasty.
How many of them can you identify? Answers at the end of the post. 🙂
♦ ANSWER KEY ♦
Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward
Barbara Billingsley (June Cleaver)

Wouldn’t it be fun to taste Betty White’s cake, Lucy’s pot roast or Joan Crawford’s pie? I especially love the pics of Shirley Temple, Audrey Hepburn and Natalie Wood (didn’t realize Shirley was a leftie). And I love the old stoves.
Paul and Joanne look so “normal,” and who would have thought a former Prime Minister did her own washing up? Hmm, Robert Mitchum can wash my dishes any time. 🙂

How fun are these photos? I missed a few but was surprised at how many of these stars I recognized.
I’m wondering which photos were taken in actual homes vs. movie sets.
What a treat! And, boy, Robert Mitchum was rather handsome back in the day, wasn’t he?
Yes, he really was. Sigh . . .
Fun quiz! I got about 75% of these. I’m shocked I didn’t recognize Marlon Brando.
Marlon was a little tricky. You have to look really carefully, but that’s definitely him. 🙂
I was surprised to see the Audrey Hepburn and I have the same white enamel salt box (with a wood lid). I feel so special!
How cool! Audrey is my all-time favorite female actor. Hold onto that salt box!!
I only missed Ann Blythe. That’s what comes from spending all my teenage years babysitting – I became a late-night-movie-star expert. 🙂 Toss in a few TV stars….fun! Thanks, Jama.
Wow — you’re good!
I missed six of them. Outta 27, not too bad. Cool stuff!
I want Ann Blyth’s blouse!!!
She looks too dressed up to be seriously working in the kitchen. What do you think the pattern is on her blouse? They look kinda like flowers but also turnips :).
You can also tell by the tender hold on the rolling pin! I thought it might be beets, but turnips is probably right!

Very fun. I love tough-as-nails Robert Mitchum washing dishes!
That was fun…got ’em all save for Natalie Wood. LOVED Paul and Joanne – especially his dorky socks and shoes!
I like his socks too — he could wear ANYTHING and still look good :).
That dog looks ready to eat what Billie Holiday is cooking! Natalie Wood is sooo adorable. Robert Mitchum is handsome, but nobody is better looking than Paul Newman. Just sayin’…
Yeah, I hear you. Paul Newman is the man. And I’ve always loved Natalie Wood.
I only got Shirley Temple… 🙂
You need to watch some old movies. 🙂
And watch them more often… 😉
I loved that post. Geesh, so many were so posed! Very cool.

I got a few. Great post, Jama!
Glad you liked it!
Fun! I didn’t do as well as I should have–especially missing Paul Newman!
Poor Paul! And he even wore his best white socks just for you. . .
Ahh, this was so much fun! I knew Shirley Temple, Liza Minnelli, Judy Garland, Audrey Hepburn, Jean Harlow, and Lucille Ball right away!
Right after posting these, I saw Shirley Temple in A Little Princess and got excited when they showed that kitchen scene. 🙂
