About Vintage Stuff

The aim of Vintage Stuff is to display some of the ephemera that I have collected, often inadvertently, over the years. I am now deliberately seeking out interesting old adverts, screen shots, leaflets, obscure record covers, picture postcards and illustrations; anything that catches my eye, in fact. They will be mainly, but not exclusively of UK origin (so many vintage blogs appear to be American) and almost always a scan from something that I actually have in my collection, rather than off the net. If you do re-blog, please acknowledge the source. Further stuff, mainly photographs, can be found on my Flickr pages, via the Benny Hill record cover.

Ava Norring

Born in Hungary in 1929, Ava Norring moved to the USA following her first marriage in 1948. Despite being dubbed "20th Century Fox's Hungarian answer to Zsa Zsa Gabor", her only credited film appears to have been as Beatrice in The Snows of Kilimanjaro. These pictures are part of a spread by Robert Halmi from the June 1955 issue of Esquire magazine; the advert for the film appeared in the December 1952 issue of Photoplay.


  1. It´s good to see some material about Ava. Thanks a lot!

  2. I'm fascinated by these minor characters lost in Hollywood history.
