    Joining in the chorus of approval; that is gorgeous. He looks so protective and the baby is so vulnerable. Beautiful find, Vickie.

  2. Her name was Diana and her autobiography (made into a film in 1958 by Warner Bros. staring Dorothy Malone and Errol Flynn) was titled “Too Much Too Soon”. Also in the “Bad and the Beautiful” (1952) Lana Turner’s character, Georgia Lorrison is based on Diana Barrymore.
