Here are 10 things you should know about Kay Francis, born 116 years ago today. We will happily watch virtually any picture that features her name in the credits.
Here are 10 things you should know about actress Theresa Harris, born 112 (some sources say 109) years ago today. Harris could sing, dance and act and was obviously beautiful, but was extremely restricted in the roles she was allowed to play. The loss was ours every bit as much as hers.
Here are 10 things you should know about Constance Bennett, born 116 years ago today. She was a glamorous star who downplayed her own talents, but her career spanned a full half-century.
Here are 10 things you should know about Helen Vinson, born 113 years ago today. Her Hollywood career was relatively brief—she appeared in just over three dozen movies—but memorable.
Here are 10 things you should know about Dickie Moore, born 95 years ago today. Some years ago, we were lucky enough to attend a special event at NYC’s Film Forum: a Q&A with Moore and his wife, actress Jane Powell.
It was a delight to see these two Hollywood veterans in tandem that night. They couldn’t have been more charming, and their mutual affection and respect was readily apparent—in short, they were darned cute together—as they delighted those assembled with insider tales of Hollywood’s glory days.
Moore was darned cute in the movies back in the day, too. He’s one of our favorite child actors of the 1930s.
