Happy Birthday, Dahling!

                                      Faithless (1932)

Tallulah Bankhead  was born on this day in 1902.  A very interesting lady, not your typical Southern belle, I'll just let her speak for herself.

      "I'm as pure as the driven slush."

     "My father warned me about men and booze, but he never mentioned women and cocaine."

     "If you really want to help the American theater, don't be an actress, dahling.  Be an audience."

And, purportedly, her last words were:  "Codeine ... bourbon."
