RIP Polly Bergen (1930-2014), who I’ve always been impressed with for her work in Cape Fear (you always believe her terror in the egg scene), The Caretakers (a very good lead performance), Move Over, Darling (a fun supporting role, especially when she’s being chased by Doris Day) and a later appearance on “Murder, She Wrote.” I’ve always wanted to see Kisses for My President too, in which Polly plays the first female POTUS. I’m sure that that must be a really fascinating film to study, especially since it was made in 1964.

Beauty is how you feel inside, and it reflects in your eyes. It is not something physical.

The youngsters are amazing to me. They have a passion for old pictures. And they have a tremendous interest in it. They are keeping them alive, actually. The studios-I wish we had more youngsters watching it then, the film, they’ve allowed them to disingrate, most of them are sawdust now.

“My real life began with my marriage,” Grace said. “Sometimes, looking back after so many years, I think I really hated Hollywood without knowing it. I had lots of acquaintances there, and people I enjoyed working with and learned a lot from. But I found a great deal of fear among people in Hollywood—fear of not succeeding, and fear of succeeding but then losing the success. I’ve often said that it was a pitiless place, full of insecure people who had crippling problems. The unhappiness out there was like the smog—it covered everything. And I didn’t want to have to go along with all those illusions about youth when I was older. I had to be in my makeup chair at seven in the morning when I was twentysix. Rita Hayworth [who was thirty-seven] told me she had to be ready at six. I heard that Joan Crawford and Bette Davis [fifty and forty-seven, respectively] had to show up at five. What did that predict for me, if I stayed in the business any longer?” Grace Kelly (November 12, 1929 - September 14, 1982)

Happy Birthday, Greta Garbo! | 18 September, 1905 – 15 April, 1990.

“She has this great appeal to the world because she expresses her emotions by thinking them. Garbo does not need gestures and movements to convey happiness, despair, hope and disappointment, joy or tragedy. She registers her feelings literally by radiating her thoughts to you.”  Clarence Brown
