Happiest birthday wishes to two of my favorite ladies of classic cinema!
Marsha Hunt turns 99 today, October 17th...
...and Julie Adams turns 90.
I've been fortunate to hear each of these ladies speak at screenings on multiple occasions, and as I have recounted in the past, I had a small role in a play starring Adams when I was a teenager.
Just about a year ago I found myself sitting at a reception table with both ladies following Coleen Gray's memorial service. Although the circumstances were very sad, it was a great honor and privilege to spend more personal time with them and enjoy their reminisces.

A tribute to Julie Adams, which also has many links, was posted here last year.
