Very nice, Mamie!
Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be enbered with your old nonsense. ~ Emerson

Great job, Mamie! I had such a crush on Richard Greene when I was a kid. And Billie Burke's eyes are dazzling!

Thanks for another wonderful list Mamie. I love the picture of Gene Kelly.
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

Sorry - I know it's frowned upon, but this takes too darn long to put together to see it move to page 2 in the middle of the first day. So sorry - but I'm kicking it up. (Probably not for the only time). Anyway - I like that pic of Robert Mitchum so having it on page 1 makes it easier to see....

I've never seen a pic of a young Ethel Barrymore, such soulful eyes, just beautiful.

Wow, so many greats born in August. As RobbO said, it's so sad to see River Phoenix among those on the list. He is a epitome of the good dying young.

Thank you for doing this, Mamie!
