Myrna Loy arriving at a Royal Command Performance, 1948
this is the most important thing that has happened to me in centuries
William Powell was given a standing ovation from cast and crew on his first day back to work on the film Another Thin Man after battling rectal cancer. Powell looking remarkably fit and tanned, seemed embarrassed by the attention. He held up his hands and the familiar grin began to play at the corners of his mouth as he tried to think of something funny to stay. The applause stopped and Bill found he couldn’t speak. Myrna Loy rushed over to him and gave him a kiss and a big hug.
Mile high glow.
LULAC Convention, Houston, Texas 1963.
Do you believe in following sudden impulses?

Happy Birthday Katharine Hepburn!
(May 12, 1907-June 29, 2003)
Her energy was phenomenal. I’d get to the studio at seven and she’d been there since six, riding the grounds on her bicycle. She has a wonderful wild and lunatic passion for everything she does. It is a tremendously infectious sort of thing and she creates a state of excitement.
