31. A meister of disguise

31.jpg


These photos were doctored up to give OSS agents an idea of what Hitler would look like if he went into hiding in disguise. The top-left photo is the authentic one, if you for some reason didn’t already know that. The photos were made by a makeup artist from New York named Eddie Senz.

Steve Buscemi was a New York firefighter before he was an actor. He joined when he was 18 and worked as a firefighter for four years. After 9/11, Buscemi quietly returned to his old engine and worked for many days alongside other firefighters to sift through rubble.

33. Slice of Life

33.jpg


This photo was staged by Life Magazine, which provided all the trucks for free. The photo shows families moving into new suburban homes in Lakewood, California. Makes sense, since the brand names of the moving trucks are all mysteriously unobscured to the camera.

34. Mike Tyson poses with a young Robert Downey, Jr.

34.jpg


In Mike’s own words:

When there was no fighting or training I would stay in the city at Steve Lott’s apartment. Many times I would visit Columbus Café owned by Paul Herman and Mikhail Baryshnikov. It was located on Columbus Avenue near Lincoln Center.

The Café drew famous actors, actresses, models, musicians and athletes.

Here’s a shot with a very young Robert Downey Jr. His great funny film with Rodney Dangerfield, “Back to School,” was playing in the movies.

Hi career skyrocketed. You must see one of his last movies, “The Judge,” with Robert Duvall – a powerful film. (source)

35. Soviet space dog

35.jpg


This is Laika, the first animal ever to be sent up into orbit. She was a Moscow stray before she was a Cosmonaut. Nobody expected her to survive the trip, and she didn’t. There’s now a monument erected to her in Moscow, of a dog standing on a rocket.
