    She had the most beautiful hair on the planet!

      I think she still does 😉

    Like porcelain. “The Helen Hayes of Television”, I do like that. I remember reading a critic (it may have been Pauline Kael) commenting on how different Ms Saint looked in North by North West than elsewhere.
    Ms Saint rarely seemed as well-used in cinema – those obvious exceptions apart – as she should have been.
    I very much like the photograph.

      Maybe it’s because I’m talking to you, Mr. George, but there’s a formality to the portrait that kind of reminds me of Gainsborough…

    With her generous eyebrows, loose black turtleneck and almost grim expression, I feel certain she has just been reading Sartre. Reminds me of Audrey Hepburn’s character (pre-transformation) in Funny Face.

    And, if she hadn’t had generous eyebrows they would have been penciled in 😉

    oooh, thank you for this. I adore her serious face expression, even when she smiles. and also: what. a. name – saint.
    an interesting comparison, too. because to me she’s like an edgier, cooler grace kelly – or, other point of view: softer and sweeter lauren bacall 😉

      She did exude a kind of calm, thoughtful, intelligence — and no matter how transformative a performer you are – a little bit of your true nature always shows through 😉

    Psychic–just got my Bluray copy of North By Northwest and watched it last night.

      Love, love, LOVE – that movie and the work of Production Designer, Robert Boyle 🙂

    Pensive and Gainsborough.

      Maybe just a wisp of cloud above and the trace of a tree limb…

    Who could not like North By Northwest?Those dead from the neck up I think.
