She's so beautiful. Mesmerizing.

Like Trixie Delight says, I guess it's all in the bone structure.....

Never was a precious natural resource so thoroughly wasted by a workaday guy who really should've known better!

My favorite apocryphal Fred Williamson story:

Fred walks into the ICU room of the severely ailing Richard Pryor, who's there recovering from his horrific free-basing accident, which left him with 2nd & 3rd degree burns over 60% of his body, and resultantly, his 3rd heart attack.
Disregarding all the critical med equipment present, FW lights up a cigar, and says: "Richard, what you doin' in the hospital?!"
Pryor bursts into tears, and wails: "Oh God, Fred, I never in my whole life felt so bad!! I nearly died, and now I'm in so much pain, I feel like I can't go on!!"
Yanking the cigar out of his mouth, Williamson retorts: "Hey, I didn't ax how you felt, I axed ya what you doin' in the dam* hospital!!

I've always liked Henry Daniell, and I really like this photo -- what beautiful eyes. Too bad we didn't get to see him in color very often.

Speaking of color -- do you remember those TV commercials Samantha Eggar did for color televisions back when you had to convince people to buy color televisions? "My haar (that's the way she said it) is red; my eyes are green, my dress is blue." Ooooh, we kids used to say lots of naughty things in response.

Sorry, but I'll never get over how that beautiful child Dean Stockwell grew into that grizzled, battered-looking man. I like the adult Stockwell just fine -- but it's hard to put the two together.

I love Henry Daniell!

I also can't get over that Myrna Dell (oooooh) AND Virginia Christine (more coffee?) were born on the same day. I think they are both so beautiful.

Mongo:

I can't imagine how you find these people. I never heard of Virginia Christine, or Myrna Dell. They may have had one liners or walkon roles but they never made an impression on me. Obviously other people are not like me because they have comments to make about them, so please keep them coming. . . it's just that you amaze me.

Judith:

Dean was a great looking young man, he didn't get grizzled until his late 40's or 50's, but you can't take away the fact that his face, as a child, was truly angelic. I have figurines of angels in my collection that look like him.
