Happy Birthday, Bebe Daniels!

We only just today learned that Bebe Daniels, the lovely star of 42nd Street and so many other motion pictures of the 1910s, ’20s and ’30s who was born 115 years ago today, was cousin to Calvert “Larry ‘Bud’ Melman” DeForest. Now that we see them pictured together, we can’t imagine why we hadn’t made the connection before. The resemblance is uncanny!
