Scarlet O’Hara, Gone with the Wind (1939)
I walked on set the first day and I looked over and I saw the most beautiful child with an unusual beauty, a special kind of beauty and I said “that’s Dorothy!” and I remember what a beautiful person she was inside.
-Ray Bolger remembering Judy Garland
"She talks at you as though you were a microphone; She lectured the hell out of me on temperance and the evils of drink. She’s actually kind of sweet and lovable, though, and she’s absolutely honest and absolutely fair about her work. None of this late on the set or demanding close-ups or that kind of thing. She doesn’t give a damn how she looks. She doesn’t have to be waited on, either. I don’t think she tries to be a character, I think she is one.” — Humphrey Bogart

I got an e-mail from tumblr today that they took down the Wizard of Oz edit I posted a year ago. Why? Everyone does edits, and why is it now suddenly being taken down? I mean seriously, I don’t make any money from editing photos, I do it for fun just like everyone else, so I don’t think we should be punished for that.
Joan Rivers was one of a kind, truly. Through her life it seemed she never received the true recognition she deserved. Yes, she was regarded as a living legend, but never respected as one. Joan was brash, and outspoken, and she was always being shamed on for that. But, underneath was a truly kind hearted, and caring woman. She had dreams of becoming a great actress, but no one would ever take her seriously as an actress after started her comedic career. Probably the only real look we have at the true woman behind the laughter and behind the excessive plastic surgeries, is her documentary Piece of Work. Before I saw that documentary a few years ago I was like everyone else, I thought she was just another comedian. But, to see her open up, to see her confess her dreams, to speak openly about her heartaches, was beautiful. She may have always thought she wasn’t attractive and beautiful on the outside, but I believe she was one of the most beautiful people on the inside, and that’s where it really counts.
