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! 🎂💕

Remembering Vivien Leigh

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, Carolyn Jones.

Born Carolyn Sue Jones on April, 28, 1930, she would’ve been 87 years old today.

She started her career in the 50s, but many of us, myself included, remember her mostly because of the 1964 TV show, The Addams Family, that was when I had my first contact with her, let’s say, and after that I became her fan.

Based on everything that I’ve read about her, she seems to have really been a very admirable and strong person, who, while undergoing treatment for cancer, she continue to work as much as she could, telling her friends that she was actually being treated for ulcers, and not only because of that, but also because of the feeling, the energy that she transmitted.

One of the things that AJ Benza said, and that I fully agree with, is that Hollywood doesn’t make them like this anymore,so I would like to take this moment to remember Carolyn and celebrate her life.

Happy Birthday, Carolyn.
