Picture of Her Imperial Highness, Farah Pahlavi

Hello. I saw a previous post about Iran. I'm familiar with the contemporary history of Iran. I was in high school when the U.S. failed in its attempt to rescue the American hostages in 1980. Anyway, the Shah's widow.. Her Imperial Highness Farah Pahlavi always fought for the betterment of her people. Say what you say about the Shah... but he was an ally of the U.S. and he did provide oil to Israel when other Islamic nations would not. I wrote a fan email to HIH and she sent me the following picture... from RC in Austin, Texas..

"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)
