Birthday Girls

A very happy birthday to two very different ladies of the stage.

Miss Josephine Baker, who would be 102 today wherever she is now appearing:

And Miss Colleen Dewhurst, a protean force in the theatre and brave enough to be married, twice, to George C. Scott:

I saw Dewhurst twice on stage, both times in vehicles that weren't very good but in which she shone. How many stars today can carry a bad play and make you like it?

  1. Darling, my sainted mother could have been Ms Dewhurst's less glamorous sister. The resemblance was really quite amazing.
