More Silver Screen...

Just a quick nod to another classic Hollywood beauty, Ardis Anderson Gaines. She was known to the public as Brenda Marshall.

A contract player at Warner Bros. in the early 1940s, Brenda Marshall played opposite Errol Flynn in the swashbuckler, The Sea Hawk in 1940. It was a busy year for Marshall as she had parts in five movies that year. She was in four movies in 1941. After that her output slowed.

She was married to William Holden for many years, from 1941 to 1973. It was a less than happy union and was marked by many separations. After marrying Holden, her career declined and she faded from the screen.

She died in 1992 in Palm Springs.

Your love for starlets indeed knows no bounds... even beyond the grave. Creepy.

One great benefit of having a rich fantasy life is that no one is ever eaten by worms and time knows no bounds.

Much more pleasant than the reality that everyone gets eaten by worms eventually and the clock never stops ticking.

Wow! What a babe.

Did you see The Sea Hawk? It's $14.99 at Fry's and I'm really tempted.
