  8. I remember seeing her walk down the center aisle at a theater in Nyack, NY..... dressed to the nines and talking to everyone. Even that 12 year old couldn't mistake her but wasn't brave enough to go up to her!

    I always wanted to use the name Agatha for a dog but I wanted Tallulah also.
    So I named her Agatha Tallulah ! And she is a mystery and naughty so it fits.

  18. "I think the Republican Party should be placed in drydock and have the barnacles scraped off its bottom"...I understand that all her life she held left wing political views and actively supported disadvantaged or displaced families.

  21. The great Mrs Patrick Campbell -the first Eliza Doolittle - once said of her: "Tallulah Bankhead is always skating on thin ice. Everyone wants to be there when it breaks."
