Notice the his and his bunny socks.


About Robert Edler

... a somewhat unknown and/or imaginary actor, writer, director, producer, photographer, friend, brother, uncle and all round good fellow that you really should get to know because he lives with that most glamorous fourpaw Mademoiselle Renee. (Mlle. Renee for short)

  1. Love the socks and colorization. Who chose pink?

    • There’s a long story involved here. With all the old wive’s tales and premonitions available in 1942, my younger sibling was supposed to be a girl. I too was expecting … a Baby Ann to arrive. So my mother got a lot of pink shower gifts. When the baby came home and I was presented with a Baby Jimmy, I started to cry saying “I don’t want a Baby Jimmy, I wanted a Baby Ann.” Eight years later my second sibling was another boy. The photo colorization was typical mid-40’s work of the Famous Barr photo studio.

  2. The color story is a great tale in itself!
