Happy birthday, Marion Davies. You would be 115 today, if you had taken really excellent care of yourself. TCM is partying it up for Marion’s birthday. Gene Zonarich of the excellent 11 East 14th Street recommends The Florodora Girl, Five and Ten, and Blondie of the Follies. Gene really knows his stuff, so we should listen to him.
In honor of Marion’s birthday, we’re all going to forget that whole William Randolph Hearst business. We’re definitely going to forget all those Orson Welles shenanigans. We’re especially going to stop wondering why wordpress.com suggested “Sarah Jessica Parker” would be appropriate tag for this post. Instead, we’re just going to enjoy Miss Davies for the fine actress she actually was.
