Pic of the Day: Turkeys and Classic Screen Queens

A turkey interrupts Bogart and Bacall’s wedding day, May 21, 1945.

After perusing Life.com’s Everyone Loves Turkey photo gallery, we noticed that getting your pic snapped with a turkey seems to be the mid-20th century equivalent of flashing the paparazzi your hoo-ha while getting out of a car. Everyone was doing it. What do you think it means? Did they eat the turkeys after the photo shoots? Peep more gobblers after the jump.
