      Actually, Edward I just realized that is true for me as well! But somehow she is so present in photographs that it seems as though I have.
      I also want to read her autobiography…

        Yes I think that is a good comment.She is so photogenic and her image so pervasive that it is quite easy to imagine that you have seen her films.I did not know that there was an autobiography- so thank you.I know however that although she lived to a late old age that she must have been a heavy smoker as she had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

        Ha! You beat me to it! Suggesting autobiography-wise… 😉

    I love this photo. Her severe haircut + feminine outfit. She looks like a million $.

    Dearest V
    Now that’s what The Dandy calls a ‘seasonal look’.
    I wonder if a trim of purple tinsel would suit me….?!?

      I’d go with silver, it’s a classic look. xox, V

        Dearest V
        Imperial purple tinsel on the deco mantelpiece and silver strings of beads on the tree. ‘Twas the compromise before Christmas.

    Love her hair/face, but … um… am I the only one to wonder if she’s smuggling a softball under there? What is that? It’s too low (I hope) to be a boob. It’s too small and perfectly round to be a stomach (egads)… I mean… what IS THAT?!?!
