I have been entranced by you ever since I saw you in “To Have and Have Not” at the Stanford theater. I think this was about 5 years ago when I was 18. You were mesmerizing, smoldering, smokey and stunningly gorgeous. I was instantly obsessed and started researching you and watching all your films. I also read your wonderful autobiography, “By Myself and Then Some”.
You will always be one of my favorite actresses. I wish you could have gotten your wish of winning a real oscar for one of your roles. I think you were the last actor alive of such a high caliber from that golden era of Hollywood.
I feel so lucky I got to see you in person a few years ago. I had always had a dream of actually meeting you. I am sad that it can no longer come true.
Thank you for inspiring me.
RIP Lauren Bacall (aka. Betty).
“Marilyn’s need to be desired was so great that she could make love to a camera. Because of this, her lust aroused lust in audiences, sometimes even among women. There was nothing subtle about it. She was no tease. She was prepared, and even eager, to give what she offered.” — William Manchester
HAPPY BIRTHDAY MARILYN MONROE!
Marilyn Monroe ( Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962)
Retiring from tumblr
I am retiring from tumblr. This place seems to have been overwhelmed by teenagers…I think I am too old for tumblr now.
I may still post a few pics now and then, but probably infrequently.
Thank you to everyone who has followed me. Tumblr was fun.
