I adore Ida! She was a fabulous actress and director.
Hard to believe Ida was brought to America for the purpose of playing Alice (in the 1933 "Wonderland," a role that went to Charlotte Henry). She'd have been terribly miscast in the part, exuding sensuality rather than innocence.For more on Ida and "Alice," see http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/265188.html
Bless you, VP, for your informative gobbets. They're like olives in my martini.
Thank you, Iconista. I hope one of these days you will add "Carole & Co." to your blogroll.
Oh Darling! Are you not already there? I suspect some New Year spring cleaning might be in order.
