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.

The Road to… series, starring Bob Hope, Bing Crosby and Dorothy Lamour are super fun to watch (I don’t really like Zanzibar and Hong Kong but that’s only my opinion!). I highly recommend them if you’re feeling sad/having a bad day! Here are links to watch them online:

Happy Birthday Jacqueline Kennedy! | July 28, 1929 – May 19, 1994

"She epitomized elegance in the post–World War II era. There’s never been a first lady like Jacqueline Kennedy, not only because she was so beautiful but because she was able to name an entire era ‘Camelot’ … no other first lady in the 20th century will be able to have that aura. She’s become an icon." —Historian Douglas Brinkley

I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles — Vera Lynn

I love Vera Lynn in a way I can’t quite describe. More than one of her songs are special to me, but this one has an interesting story. My grandmother passed away before I was born (I have her name and my grandfather’s tattooed on my arm). But I’ve always loved this song. Once, I played it while my mom was in the room with me, and she told me that my grandmother used to sing this to her as a lullaby. 

Chance is an interesting thing.
