Trivia Answers - Women in Men's Jammies

I'm impressed by how you folks notice the little things, and especially to our Caftan Woman, who certainly knows her PJs like nobody's business.  The answers to Monday's pictorial trivia are:


A - Jean Arthur, checking herself out in the full-length mirror as Ronald Colman watches.  They're his pajamas, and this is "The Talk of the Town" (1942).



B - Alexis Smith donning Bing Crosby's pajamas for a wrestling lesson in "Here Comes the Groom" (1951).  We talked about this movie a few weeks ago, and that's when the idea for this stupid trivia post occurred to me.


C - Patricia Ellis, wearing Oliver Hardy's jammies, but still maintaining her lady-like demeanor by not taking off her hat, in "The Block-Heads" (1938).  I have to hand it to you here, Caftan Woman, I thought this would be a difficult one.



D - Finally, we have Claudette Colbert in Clark Gable's pajamas from "It Happened One Night" (1934).  She's off to use the showers "and things".

Showers "and things"! I always laugh when she says that. Claudette was so darn cute. ;)

Yeah, I love that line.

"Caftan Woman, who certainly knows her PJs like nobody's business." If one thing can truly be said of me, that is it. I'm a PJ gal from way back.

You almost had me at "The Block-Heads", Jacqueline. It took a lot of staring before the light bulb finally clicked on over my head. Next to PJ's I'm a sucker for a great gag and the "chair" bit in the movie is a winner.

I second that on the chair gag.

Two more examples come to mind: Veronica Lake in "I Married a Witch" (1942) and Audrey Hepburn in "Roman Holiday" (1953).

Dang, you're absolutely right, my friend. Looks like we'll have to have a sequel to this post someday. Who'd have thought there'd be so many ladies in this attire?
