Ruth Elizabeth Bette Davis!
“I’ve never had any trouble with her, but it may be true some guys find her hard to get on with. The fact is she’s a talented, tough, temperamental filly with a strong mind of her own. Unless you’re very big she can knock you down. But she’s a hell of a gal.”
Happy Birthday Joan Crawford!
March 23rd ca. 1906 - May 10th 1977
The Little Girl Across The Street
She was just the little girl who lived across the street
All legs and curls and great big eyes and restless dancing feet
As vivid as a humming bird, as bright and swift and gay
A child who played at make-believe throughout the livelong day.
With tattered old lace curtains and a battered feather fan
She swept and preened, an actress with grubby snub-nosed clan
Of neighbourhood kids for an audience enchanted with play
A prairie Bernhardt for a while. And then she went away.
We missed her on the little street, her laughter and her fun
Until the dull years blurred her name as years have ever done.
A great premiere in Hollywood…..the light, the crowds, the cars,
The frenzied noise of greeting to the famous movie stars,
The jewels, the lace, the ermine coat, the ballyhoo and cries,
The peacock women’s promenade, the bright mascaraded eyes,
The swift excited whisper as the limousine draws near,
“Oh look! It’s Joan. It’s Joan! It’s Joan!” On every side I hear
The chatter, gossip, envy, sight, conjectures, wonder, praise,
As memory races quickly back to early prairie days…..
The little girl across the street, the funny child I knew
Who dared to dream her splendid dreams
and make her dreams come true.
-Don Blanding, Joanie’s childhood neighbour and later a successful poet.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JUDY GARLAND!
June 10, 1922 – June 22, 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”
