Marvelous photos, somnambule! I love the first and third photos in #74. And she's stunning in the 1941 studio portrait and in the Queen Kelly still.

I can't believe that she once spent $125,000 a year on clothing... back then!

Great quotes. I agree with Mr. DeMille.

^ Thank you lady stardust! All of these are fantastic, especially the first photo. She looks so lovely & so serene in it. I wonder which film it's from?
