That face, luminous and inscrutable as the moon before the camera.
(Years ago I was inventing character names for a – never-written – story, the heroine was named Greta Hepburn! Named for, well, the first name is obvious while the surname comes from Not-Katharine. Ha. Dear me. It is to cringe.)
What about Cary Niven, or Lana Loren, or…?
Quite apart from how glamorous Greta is, aren’t those stage hands in their crisp white shirts and baggy tweeds just too-dapper-too-be-believed?
The Perfumed Dandy

Everyone in this photo looks fabulous. They ALL look like movie stars!
