Local Indianapolis photographer Steve Kinnett took this amazing picture of part of our holiday light display featuring 30,000 Christmas lights at our CMG headquarters. This is the 16th year we adorned our trees with lights. Over 110,000 cars pass by CMG daily on I-69, just north of Indianapolis.
The iconic Coca-Cola glass bottle, the Greyhound Scenicruiser, the shell of Air Force One, the Shell logo, the Studebaker Avanti, a tear drop shaped streamlined pencil sharpener, and the Elna Lotus sewing machine were all designed by the same man – Raymond Loewy.
So, it’s only fitting Google would honor one of the most influential designers of all time, on what would be his 120th birthday, with a Google Doodle.
Today’s Doodle is inspired by the Pennsylvania Railroad’s S1 steam locomotive he designed. Check it out here:
Happy Birthday, Raymond Loewy!

MUSIC BOX FILMS TAKES U.S. RIGHTS ON
BETTIE PAGE REVEALS ALL
“Queen of the Pinups” Documentary to Open NY and LA on November 29
Chicago, IL (August 8, 2013) – Music Box Films announced today that it has acquired all U.S. rights to Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Mark Mori’s BETTIE PAGE REVEALS ALL, an intimate look at one of the world’s most recognized sex symbols, featuring Bettie Page herself telling her story for the first time in her own words. Music Box Films will release BETTIE PAGE REVEALS ALL in New York and Los Angeles on November 29, followed by a national theatrical rollout and later on all home entertainment platforms.
In Mori’s documentary, the real Bettie Page emerges from the veil of myth and rumor via interviews Mori taped a decade prior to her death in 2008. With earthy, razor sharp wit, Bettie tells her life story — from humble beginnings as one of six children born to an impoverished southern family, to high school salutatorian, to her career as a scandalous 50s pin-up model. The film also uncovers previously unknown details about Bettie’s many torrid affairs, told from both her and her lovers’ perspectives. We follow her story through her sudden retirement at the peak of her modeling career in 1957, and discover a strange tale of decades of broken marriages, born-again Christianity, and bouts of mental illness, before ultimately resurfacing in the public eye in the early 90′s, unaware of her cult status.
With a stunning array of photographs, archival material and movie footage, BETTIE PAGE REVEALS ALL shows how Page’s unabashed sexual expression and provocative poses set the stage for the 1960s sexual revolution and ushered in a modern era in fashion. The film definitively demonstrates why, for stars like Katy Perry and Beyonce, and for new generations of fans, Bettie remains an irresistible style icon. Revealingly, Forbes in 2012 listed her as one of the top ten posthumous celebrity earners.
Music Box president William Schopf negotiated the deal directly with the filmmaker.
