To Mary Astor (1906-1987), a true lady of Old Hollywood and a remarkable actress. I have also always loved her style (see the hat collection above) and her versatility (from her character in the famous The Maltese Falcon to her mother portrayals in Meet Me in St. Louis or Little Women). Here’s also a hint of her quick wit:
"There are five stages in the life of an actor: Who’s Mary Astor? Get me Mary Astor. Get me a Mary Astor type. Get me a young Mary Astor. Who’s Mary Astor?"
