In the hallway after a dinner party, thinking herself unobserved, screenwriter Philip Dunne watched as she twirled a large lavender cape- going “V-R-R-R-O-O-O-M-M-M! as though she was a toreador! It was fascinating to see the was she sort of commanded the was she walked; her boldness about presented herself. And yet I always had the feeling she was saying. “Here’s little Betty- here she is,a big movie star and a glamour girl. It can’t really be me!”
-Bogart, A.M Sperber and Eric Lax
“All and all, I have no complaints. I’m damn lucky”

It doesn’t have to be complicated, simply “Thank you Betty” or “You’re amazing” is enough. :)

Lauren Bacall’s 88th Birthday is coming up on September 16th:
She has talked in interviews about how she doesn’t feel like she has very many fans anymore. She doesn’t see all the love she gets here on tumblr from all of us.
So for her birthday, every note this post gets I will add one piece of confetti to an envelope, to represent a fan and send it to her.
I want to show her that she is loved and appreciated for her lifetime of work and show her all the fans that are still out there.
LIKE AND REBLOG SO THIS CAN GET LOTS OF CONFETTI FOR BETTY!

“JUDY. Say that name and everyone knew whom you were talking about. There was only one Judy and she was honored by being called her first name only, a tribute accorded to few in the annals of show buisness”
Happy Birthday Judy
June 10th 1922- June 22nd 1969
“Please all I am is Judy Garland. I am tired of trying to behave like Judy Garland is supposed to behave like Judy Garland is suppose to behave. I don’t think many people could have lived through what I have. I’m glad I’m a woman with enough guts to cry about the lonely, dead-end streets of her life, but I ‘m still a woman with a dream in her throat”
“Don’t give in, fight for your future, independence is the only solution”
-Katharine Hepburn (May 12 1907 - June 29 2003), Me: Stories Of My Life
Happy Birthday Ingrid, sweetie.
