Marpessa Dawn
Born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA on 3 January 1934.

An actress most famous for her role as Eurydice in Marcel Camus' "Black Orpheus." (1959)

She is an absolute beauty, who has been relegated to the margins of history and I'm determined to correct that!:p


With her husband George Eric Vander

Black Orpheus is showing in London at the ICA over Christmas!
Click on this link for further dates and details http://www.ica.org.uk/?lid=12601

If you can catch it I would. Everyone I know who's seen it are extremely fond of it. It has a special place in their heart. It's quite incredible!
