  1. Don’t forget Ms Gordon’s late-life acting turns in Harold and Maude, Rosemary’s Baby (oh, EVIL!), and, of course, the Which Way films of Clint Eastwood featuring Clyde the Orangutan! 😉
    PS And isn’t that a hatfest for those ladies?! Claudette pulls that look off best. 🙂

  2. I’m sure it doesn’t look good for me if I admit that one of the highlights of my life was the evening I had dinner in an Indian restaurant with my husband, and Ruth Gordon and Studs Terkel were eating at the next table.
