(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.
One thought on “Role Model: Our Girl Friday, Rosalind Russell”
Love Rosalind Russell and Auntie Mame is an all-time fave. Thanks for reminding me–I need to netflix her entire canon.
