Stars of the past

Yesterday Elizabeth Taylor passed away, media is full of cheap gossip, from her scandals to her marriages and so on.

She was a star from the galaxy, of a special Hollywood era. An era when the Hollywood stars had character, class, discipline, glamour and grace. Sure they had their share of scandals and imperfections, but no one is perfect.

At this time, Hollywood is full of multi million dollar churning mega stars, who are rich in material wealth, but poor in character and class, they go in and out of jails and rehabs like you and I go to the corner grocery store.

We look at not so distant past, there is a never ending list of stars we adore, Grace kelly, Deborah Kerr, Dorris Day, Katharine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Lana Turner, Ingrid Bergman, Betty Davis, Gary Cooper, John Wayne, Cary Grant, Jack Lemmon, Rock Hudson, James stewart, Clark Gable, Steve Mcqueen, Paul Newman and the list goes on.

Important clarification, as pointed out by fellow blogger The Devoted Classicist, Ms. Dorris Day Lives in Carmel, California, where she jointly owns Cypress Inn and dedicates time to her Doris Day Animal Foundation.


  1. Although apparently content in retirement from films, we still have Doris Day. Her hotel in Carmel, which welcomes dogs, is wonderful.

  2. Thanks for your comment, really appreciate it, I recently read about Doris Day's Carmel Hotel and forgot to mention that she is well and active. I will make a correction in the post. Please Keep visiting my blog and keep an eye on it. I treasure your comments.
    Thank you.
