The Ladies in Red


"Oh, maman! Just think! I am to be queen! I shall be queen of MGM!"

MISS NORMA SHEARER
August 10, 1902 - June 12, 1983


MISS RHONDA FLEMING
August 10, 1923



MISS ARLENE DAHL
August 11, 1928



We missed their birthdays during our little hiatus. Many happy returns, especially to the still lovely Rhonda Fleming and Arlene Dahl - perhaps a special appearance at a screening of Slightly Scarlet (1956) is in order?

  1. Red is my colour of choice for those 'Modess' days.

  2. Is that hole-laden shot of Miss Norma, the postcard Joan used as target practice out at the range? :-P

  3. My late Aunt and Uncle were neighbors of Ms. Fleming's in Bel Air. She was an impressive person when I met her.

  4. Oh, we adore all three, especially Ms. Fleming. Her scene with Robert Mitchum in "Out of the Past" is one our favorite bits of film noir.
