Groovy Photos: Heartwarming Moments In History
Written by Lyra Radford
Much of history consists of conflict because unfortunately, there can be no change or real growth without it. But there is always room for compassion in there too, in fact, it's necessary. They are two sides of the same coin. Compassion, laughter, fond memories are extremely important in life, without compassion there is no incentive to grow in the first place–no inspiration. Compiled here are some of the more of the lighthearted moments in history. Iconic figures just starting out, happy children on the streets of Paris, and acts of transformation in Germany just after the Second World War. All these faces... inspiring. All these moments... heartwarming.
Two ways to rev up any guy, a cool engine and Michelle Pfeiffer in cut-off shorts.
Pfeiffer's early acting career consisted of bit parts in films that didn’t achieve much critical or box office success: Falling in Love Again (1980) with Susannah York, The Hollywood Knights (1980), and the Curse of the Dragon Queen (1981).
Pfeiffer will be the first to tell you she had a long way to go, in fact, what she later said of her early work: "I needed to learn how to act... in the meantime, I was playing bimbos and cashing in on my looks."
She didn’t start to see much growth until she was cast in Scarface (1983) as cocaine-addicted trophy wife Elvira Hancock. A role which she almost lost out on because of her involvement in the flop of a film Grease 2.
After Scarface, an article in Vanity Fair titled "Blonde Ambition", summed up the direction Pfeiffer’s career was taking; "she is on the verge of stardom. In the parlance of the industry, she is hot".
