Vintage Mugshots: Old-School Criminals Working The Camera

Gallery

Bygone Theatre

Working on Rope has got us thinking about true crime and the bizarre attraction the world has to criminals and the supposed “glamour” that surrounds them. While we of course don’t support or encourage crime itself, you’ve gotta admit, some of these vintage mugshots are pretty stylin’. Want one of yourself? Join us for Retro Radio Hour – Suspense! and have one taken in our Mugshot Photobooth!

Bygone Theatre

I came across an interesting Business Insider article today on the costs associated with working as an actor; even as someone who is well aware of the small return on a huge investment (of both time and money) I was shocked by some of the numbers.

Consider the cost of training and promotional materials, for one;

School: some go the 4 year BA route, which will cost about $20 000 in total, but even if you are forgoing traditional education for workshops or conservatory programs, expect to spend thousands here.
