Commandeers? Oh is that what they called it back then. That one cop certainly looks pretty happy about being "commandeered."

Ah, a photo op - everyone knows she was really waiting for the strip-search by Sergeant Mary.

Yikes, Rob! I'm just picturing Tallulah being (wo)manhandled by some big Hope Emerson-type matron.

(shudder)

I'll say this though . . . she woulda owned Women's Lockup in half an hour.

From what I hear, Tallulah wasn't overly choosy about that sort of thing. She seems to have drawn the line at farm animals though.

I loved Hope - she was the best tough broad ever. In "Cry of the City" she answers a door at night in one of the best shots I ever saw. BTW, did they know each other? Coulda happened.
