The "Wails" of August

I join the folks at THE SILENT MOVIE THEATRE on Fairfax in sending good wishes to SUZANNE PLESHETTE who is battling lung cancer. No actress ever got more out of a 2 line greeting ("Hi Bob!") than she!

Speaking of silent films always reminds me of LILLIAN GISH. Miss Gish was an amazing actress & a lovely woman who made over 80 films in her 99 years including the first great epic: THE BIRTH OF A NATION. She was one of only a handful of silent film actresses to make the transistion to "talkies" successfully. On her very last film, "The Whales of August" she had the pleasure (??) of working with BETTE DAVIS.

After a particularly moving take the cast & crew rushed Miss Gish to compliment her.
And good old Bette barked: "Of course her close-up was great! She was there when they invented them!"

Is it just me or does anyone else find it a bit depressing that the strongest candidate to succeed the SON of one president is the WIFE of another president?!
Is this why we fought the war for Independence from the British monarchy?

I think that after he is sentenced for his crimes in California that creep JOHN KARR should be required to reimburse the American people for this charade he perpetrated AND be forced to buy a "King Prawns & Chardonnay Dinner" for every person living in the U.S.
