Jack Nicholson - unpublished photos (1969)

Love these shots of Jack Nicholson; I was up late the other night watching him play Randal MacMurphy in 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest', just an excellent film....

Re-blogged these from 8Negro blog where there are a couple more shots to see.


Great shot by Domenico Mimmo taken from inside a Piaggio Ape 3-wheeler, looking out of the cab's rear window - looks just like a still from a 1920's silent movie. judging by other shots in the set here, this was Domenico's intention.

Milano Primi Passi - 1947

A Vespa entered the Milano Primi Passi event when Carlo Masciocchi took part in the 1947 race, although he was not officially supported by Piaggio.

Racing across the valleys above the city of Bergamo would have represented quite a challenge for a small Vespa engine, however his effort was rewarded when Masciocchi finished second.
