Happy Birthday Marion Davies

Marion Davies

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.

  1. Lovely Marion, funny lady and gifted mimic; I simply adore her. My favorite film of those being aired is “Bachelor Father,” Marion is quite good and paired opposite a very young Ray Milland as her half-brother.
