plus she had a lisp

gloria grahame was just so dang fun to watch. whether she played good or bad (mostly bad) her unique style has never been matched. her characters seemed innocently swept up in the mess of life. she certainly played out and out bad ('sudden fear') but her wonderful role in 'in a lonely place' takes us on a trip inside a person who is really trying to navigate the rocky waters of a man she allows herself to love. bogart as the sourpuss lets her in for a rough ride. i thank them both for the treat.
today is gloria's birthday!
