When I think of style and sense-of-aesthetic, Rand Corp. does not immediately come to mind. (Insert emoticon with blank stare).

here be a puzzler for our vintage celeb experts -



ran across this image of a young lady a-wheel on the back lot of a film studio

seems like i should recognize her but am unable to do so

clear she is on a borrowed studio machine as her first name would not be "bud" or "bill"

image suggests a mid-to-late '60's date based on hair, clothing, shoes and convertible in the background

Kudos for pedaling (actually doing anything) in those cockroach cracker footwear. Those metal pedals are sometimes bastards even with shoes.

While "Breaking Away" was brought up, here are scans of two theater lobby cards from a set I got from the U.K. I also have a set from Canada, but they are too large for me to scan.

Normally I don’t give a toss about “celebrities” since they’re just people doing a job but this one popped up on a Fecebook thing and I loved it

Some celebrities aren't just people. They're more like aliens from some far more advanced society sent here to save us. (ymmv.)
