Guest Post - Celebrity News

Well hello everybody. FJ has just returned the favor and made me a contributor to his blog so that now I can do guest posts.

My first one will be a short one (relatively speaking - LOL), in the spirit of FJ's own posts. I will however, do more than just shamelessly promote my blog on his like he did on mine.


Anyway, today is the old movie actress Maureen O'Hara's 90th birthday (according to imdb.com) She was in a number of movies with John Wayne for those of you unaware of who she is.

She was also the mother in the classic original version of Miracle On 34th Street with Natalie Wood when NW was a kid.

Also, last week, another old movie actress, Patricia Neal died. I believe it said she was 84. She was the wife of the children's author Roald Dahl (Charlie And The Chocolate Factory, James And The Giant Peach) for about 30 years before they divorced

She was in movies like The Fountainhead (which I have seen myself and liked even though it was written by the extreme right-winger Ayn Rand), Hud, Breakfast at Tiffanys, and The Subject was Roses.

The last movie mentioned was done not long after she had a series of major strokes (in her 30's! and while pregnant with her 5th child who was born healthy) and apparently was one of her finer performances.

Check out some of these ladies films. I'm sure you won't be disappointed, especially if you are a fan of old movies as I am.
