This awesome YouTube channel uploaded a bunch of Roddy McDowall's home videos yesterday and they're unspeakably genius. Every single cool actor of the '60s hanging out, swimming, eating hot dogs, playing volleyball, building sandcastles. Paul Newman and Lauren Bacall and Ben Gazzara laughing together -- while Natalie Wood lounges nearby. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE IN THESE VIDEOS. SO MANY PEOPLE. I can't even begin to write them all down.
Here are cool people hanging out together at various parties during the summer of '65:

There are even more AT the YouTube channel, so definitely check them out.

I'm so glad that now I have an exact place and time to direct my time-machine to. GOODBYE ALL! ;-D

THAT was awesome!!! No wonder why Roddy appears as a source every time someone makes a biography or a documentary about classic stars, he was friends with everyone!

LOL to Lauren kissing Kirk Douglas :) And Natalie Wood's faces :) And what a delight must have been seeing Paul Newman playing volleyball in person.

Thanks for letting us know about those vids, Millie!

These videos are so fun to watch! Roddy McDowall seemed to be friends with everyone in Hollywood. He was always seemed to be able contribute great anecdotes on so many of Hollywood's other big stars. I wonder how many more home videos he has like this of other parties at his house and different events. Thanks for sharing. said...
