Hey, Did You Happen to See...

...the most beautiful boy and girl in the world?

DAME ELIZABETH TAYLOR
February 27, 1932

VAN WILLIAMS
February 27, 1934

Also born today: Joan Bennett (February 27, 1910 - December 7, 1990), whom we always (unfairly) regarded a bit as Constance's less-interesting younger sibling. Incidentally, Joan played Elizabeth Taylor's mother in Father of the Bride (1950) and Father's Little Dividend (1951), and, when called upon, could do a pretty fair imitation of her big sister Connie:


This is not, we hasten to add, a photo of what we've been doing on our little hiatus.

  1. Stunning eyes. If Taylor ever proposed to you would you say "yes"?

    Trying to find the last milliner in London who might be able to reproduce that hat (your header) for me.

  4. Joan and Constance Bennett are (were)my great-aunts! Joan never quite got to A-list but I love her for her adaptability, including having a role in "Dark Shadows" back in late 60's.
