I started posting again earlier this month so I missed out on a few lost greats. Ruby Dee, beautiful and incredibly talented. James Garner, cool, a man’s man and a part of my early childhood as Rockford. I am posting now, so sadly I have to add to the list of titans that have left us behind. It was announced today that the amazing talent of Lauren Bacall has left us at the age of 89.
As a child watching old movies, I always wondered, and still do. Why Maryilyn Monroe was considered Hollywood’s great beauty over Lauren Bacall. Well, Lauren Bacall didn’t kill herself, and Lauren Bacall never presented herself as an object sexual fantasy. Lauren Bacall was a class act, all the way.
