“Life without emotions is like an engine without fuel.” Mary Astor

Annex - Astor, Mary_03


  1. George Kaplan

    Such a striking image; the composition, the interplay of light and shadow, and then there’s Ms Astor herself: her pose, her expression, her gaze, her dress, her arms… (!)

    (I also can’t end this comment without mention of your tagging capabilities, Ms Lester! You must spend such a long time summoning them up, incredible dedication… You’re a wonder!)

    • Besides the diary (which was destroyed and was a key element in the custody battle for her daughter) she wrote a stack of really good books – both autobiographies and novels – I imagine she would have had a sensational web log as well 😉

  2. What a really stunning picure.With a few exceptions they dont seem to make women as beautiful as this anymore.Then I am just a romantic.For that matter they dont seem to take pictures like this anymore.
