I'm EmJo! 24 years old and just trying to figure it all out. Mostly interested in Classic Hollywood and 60s music, though I have been known to have other interests.

Happy birthday Clara Bow! | July 29 1905 - September 27 1965.
"Fame hasn’t given me everything. I hope to marry some day. I would rather marry a man with a good disposition than a man who is good looking. I seldom dance in public for fear of causing comment. Picture people should keep their married lives private. Some day I want to direct my own pictures. I am afraid of love."
Grace Ethel Cecile Rosalie Allen Gracie Allen (July 26, 1902 - August 27, 1964)
Dubbed as The Smartest Dumbbell in the History of Show Business, Gracie Allen is a legend to say the least. She portrayed the scatterbrained Gracie that you all know so flawlessly that people believed she was actually “stupid” in real life. Gracie’s character is unmistakable. She was undoubtedly one of the funniest ladies in the history of just about every medium there is; Vaudeville, radio, films & television. Gracie Allen was unlike any other; charming, funny, and the type of person to cut the iron chord on the electric iron to save electricity. Happy birthday, Googie.
"You’re too smart for one girl"
“I’m more than one.”
"You’re more than one?"
“Yeah, my mother has a picture of me when I was two.”
Happy Birthday William Horatio Powell | July 29th, 1892 – March 5th, 1984
His careful attention to the neceties of grooming; his perfectly tailored suits, spotless cuffs, and collars; his orotund voice curled around well-turned phrases; the deferential way he bowed his head slightly when being introduced — all would have helped him gain entry at any elite, leather-chair-and-brandy-snifter men’s club.
“I’m not a ladies’ man. I haven’t the physical characteristics for one thing. Not handsome. Someone like Valentino should have played this part. Not Bill Powell.
Unfortunately, or perhaps it is fortunate that I have always been forced to stand on my acting ability. I haven’t a personality such as Jack Gilbert`s, for instance, that attracts women and makes them like me for myself. When I am on the screen I must make them forget me entirely and think only of my acting”
Powell is to dialogue as Fred Astaire is to dance. His delivery is so droll and insinuating, so knowing and innocent at the same time, that it hardly matters what he’s saying.
I know…but maybe talking in person will help. Either way, done with this.
