There’s a storm a-coming and we’re going to have to stay warm somehow, so let’s just take a moment to step away from the Daguerreotypes and say helllloooooo to Gene Kelly.
Hey Gene. Hey.
holy crap Gene Kelly what yes ok.
RIP Ruby Catherine Stevens
July 16, 1907 - January 20, 1990
Underneath her sullen shyness smoldered the emotional fires of a young Duse, or a Bernhardt. Naive, unsophisticated, caring nothing about make-up, clothes, or hairdos, this chorus girl could grab your heart and tear it to pieces. She knew nothing about camera tricks: how to “cheat” her looks so her face could be seen, how to restrict her body movements in close shots. She just turned it on - and everything else on the stage stopped.
- Frank Capra
Happy 109th Birthday, Cary Grant
(January 18, 1904 - November 29, 1986)
“Everyone tells me I’ve had such an interesting life, but sometimes I think it’s been nothing but stomach disturbances and self-concern.”
A million lights, they flicker there
A million hearts beat quicker there
No skies are gray on that great white way,
That’s the Broadway Melody!
