what's in a name

she remains one of the truly adored and respected actresses. born lucile de vasconcellos langhanke, mary astor (1906-1987) never fails to win my admiration. her last film 'hush hush sweet charlotte' offered this incredible image. she looks like a noble brought down by hard times yet holding on to custom.

pride and vanity definitely was not a lame duck ploy used by this brilliant aging icon. it takes strong will and character to continue a passion for acting and passing on the torch to other actresses to be themselves from the start to finish.
