CLOSE ENOUGH

I was just watching a 1985 video of Soprano Edita Gruberova on Classic Arts Showcase, and it occurred to me how much she resembled Vanessa, the real-life girl next door I’ve mentioned in previous posts–or was it the other way around?

As we all  tend to romanticize people from our past, I romanticize Vanessa.  She didn’t look this good–or did she?  What does it matter–the resemblance is close enough.

THE POWER OF PAULETTE

Paulette Goddard appeared in numerous films–yet I know her from the Charlie Chaplin film, Modern Times.  She was even married to Charlie Chaplin, at one time.  The power of Paulette is her girl-next-door beauty.
