Role Model: Our Girl Friday, Rosalind Russell


(Video biography from the special features on the “His Girl Friday” DVD.)

“Taste. You cannot buy such a rare and wonderful thing. You can’t send away for it in a catalogue. And I’m afraid it’s becoming obsolete.”

So said the “bold, brainy and beautiful” Ms. Rosalind Russell. It was tough to choose which wonderful woman to feature for a first role model post. I think that Ms. Russell, whom I first encountered as “Auntie Mame” and learned to love even more in “His Girl Friday”, fits the bill.

Time for dinner and a movie.
