Susan Hayward Pic of the Day

After a decidedly macho post yesterday, I thought we'd bring things back to a more tender-hearted level, yet still retain a western theme. This photo from the November 11, 1949 LIFE Magazine session features some famous redhead with a lot of attitude. I should mention that it was fifty years ago today that Susan won her Oscar for her performance in I Want to Live!

"Deadshot" Susan: Brooklyn, New York's most notorious old west outlaw.

  3. What a lovely picture! And Trixie: The reason may be that the boys now connect cowboy costumes with sexy women wearing them!
