i don't need a reason to mention my fave actress julie christie. however:
Christie was born on 14 April 1941 in Singlijan Tea Estate, Chabua, Assam, India, then part of the British Empire.
it is so interesting that one of the quintessential swinging sixties role models was born in india. this could very well be why she shines brighter for me that the other terrific british actresses. from 'darling' to 'heaven can wait' she glows. one of my most watched films is 'return of the soldier.' she plays a complicated, dissatisfied woman opposite the terrific alan bates. plus, ann-margret is really swell in it.
happy birthday beauty!
