Happy Birthday Ginger Rogers

"Perhaps I'm old-fashioned, but Black and White film still hold 
an affectionate place in my heart,
they have an incomparable mystique and mood."

"I did everything he (Fred Astaire) did, but backwards and in heels."

"Looking back at my life's voyage, I can only say that it has been a golden trip."

"When two people love each other, they don't look at each other;
they look in the same direction." 

At the age of ten, I thought if a boy kissed you on the lips,
you would have a baby, and I surely wasn't the only youngster who believed that!"

"My mother told me I was dancing before I was born. 
She could feel my toes tapping wildly inside her for months."

"My love for ice cream emerged at an early age - and has never left."

"When you're happy, you don't count the years."

Marilyn . Monroe

When she’s there, she’s there. All of her is there! She’s there to work. 
- Clark Gable 

Marilyn was an incredible person to act with…the most marvelous I ever worked with, and I have been working for 29 years.
- Montgomery Clift

When you look at Marilyn on the screen, you don’t want anything bad to happen to her.
You really care that she should be all right…happy.
- Natalie Wood

I got a cold chill. This girl had something I hadn’t seen since silent pictures.
She had a kind of fantastic beauty like Gloria Swanson, when a movie star had to look beautiful, and she got sex on a piece of film like Jean Harlow.
- Leon Shamroy, on MM’s 1946 screen test

She looked like, if you bit her, milk and honey would flow from her. 
- Artist Franz Kline 

Still she hangs like a bat in the heads of the men who met her, and none of us will ever forget her. 
- Sammy Davis, Jr. 

Marilyn is a dreamy girl. She’s the kind who’s liable to show up with one red shoe and one black shoe. 
- Jane Russell 

It was impossible to think of Marilyn Monroe except as Cinderella. 
- Diana Trilling

Happy Birthday Dad!

A day of joy
laughter and happiness,
for a special person,
surrounded by bliss!
Presents stacked high
with ribbons and bows,
family come
as the party grows! 
A day to remember,
a different age, 
a step ahead,
a whole new page,
You're my favourite lad
Happy Birthday Dad!

Vivien Darling

Vivien Leigh otherwise known as Lady Olivier sent the world reeling 
at the intensity of her Southern-Belle performances, 
Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind 
and Blanche DuBois in A streetcar named Desire.
Her glamour, acting ability and obvious beauty attracted me easily,
and I now consider her one of my beloved icons.
