Happy Birthday to Mae West

So, today is the birthday of another favorite actress of mine: Mae west and I’m trying to share one of my favorite videos of her: an  Interview with Dick Cavett.
I love this interview because it was actually a funny one, once, Mae made the interviewer embarrassed many times with her directs answers and I found that too funny, kind of impossible not to.
Pretty obvious Mae was the kind of lady who did what she wanted and the way she wanted in a time when not all did that, even stating that she had made a fortune out of censorship.
Wanted to spend the day watching some movies and reading more about her, but will just have time for this at night, so want to wish a happy birthday to this lady that didn’t even take too long to become one of my favorites from the Old Hollywood.

Happy Birthday, Mae! 🎂💕

Today marks 50 years of Vivien’s passing.
She’s probably most remembered due to her role in Gone with the Wind as Scarlett O’Hara, for which she won an Academy Awards for Best Actress for her performances as Scarlett O’Hara in Gone with the Wind (1939) and Blanche DuBois in the film version of A Streetcar Named Desire (1951), a role she had also played on stage in London’s West End in 1949. She also won a Tony Award for her work in the Broadway musical version of Tovarich (1963).

Happy Birthday, Moe!

Today’s is to be celebrated as Moe Howard’s birthday. 🎈 He would have turned 120 years old today.
He was born Moses Harry Horwitz on June 19, 1897, in the Brooklyn, New York City neighborhood of Bensonhurst to Solomon Horwitz and Jennie Gorovitz, the fourth-born of five brothers of Lithuanian-Jewish ancestry. He was named Moe when still very young and later called himself Harry. His parents and brothers, Benjamin and Irving were not involved in show business, but Moe, older brother Shemp Howard, and younger brother Curly Howard all eventually became known as members of The Three Stooges. He loved to read as older brother Jack recalled: “I had many Horatio Alger books, and it was Moe’s greatest pleasure to read them. They started his imaginative mind working and gave him ideas by the dozen. I think they were instrumental in putting thoughts into his head to become a person of good character and to become successful.” This helped him in his acting career in later years, such as in memorizing his lines quickly and easily.

Happy Birthday, Moe 🎂🎁🎉
