Ellen Drew, kitted out in a knitted cardigan, rides the Paramount backlot, circa 1941. Drew started her career in the movie biz as Terry Day, but there was an actor with the same name, and so the studio rechristened her. Among Drew’s finest turns: Christmas In July, Preston Sturges’ 1940 screwball money-isn’t-everything gem. Coffee figures pivotally in the plot.

Isabelle Adjani, outfitted head to toe in Team Raleigh-Creda gear, rides a vintage rod-brake step-through through a courtyard somewhere in the world. The Dutch team Raleigh-Creda competed in 1980 and 1981. Adjani’s cult psycho thriller, Possession, was released in theaters beginning in ’81. We’re not sure why the actress is in the distinctive red and yellow, but she seems happy about it.

Viola Dana wheels around the Cirque d’Hiver velodrome in Paris in a scene from the 1924 silent movie, Open All Night. The Brooklyn born actress appeared in more than 100 shorts and features from 1910 to 1929, but failed to transition successfully into talkies. Look for another Rides a Bike photo of Dana as she tricycles on the Cirque d’Hiver track!

Shaun Cassidy, starring as Dave Stoller in the ABC- TV adaptation of the Oscar-nominated Breaking Away, rides his Huffy 12 Le Grande (!) around town. The show ran for one season, 1980-81. The teen heartthrob singer-turned-actor switched to writing and producing in the 1990s — and he’s still at it. Maybe he’s upgraded his bike, too.

Sandra “Sandy” Wirth, baton-twirling beauty pageant contestant-turned-Hollywood-actress, goes hands free on her Schwinn Traveler in this odd handout photo from the prescient political satire A Face in the Crowd. Odd, because Wirth remains uncredited in the 1957 Elia Kazan-directed Warner Bros. release.
