I think, absolutely, that Phryne is a person that often finds herself more liberated than women are today and realizes the luxury of her independence. She knows what it is to have money, to own her own home, her own car and yet she’s not stingy with her money either. She’s quite happy to buy cars for other people. She is definitely someone who holds on to her independence. Many men would like to marry her but…she’s not the marrying kind.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Natalie Wood
(July 20, 1938 - November 29,1981)
"She was very smart. She read a book a week and had a wicked sense of humor. She was just adorable — one of the few movie stars I’ve met who was really worthy of that title." Dennis Stock
"Nobody really knows her story. She was a superb actress, even if many of her pictures weren’t so hot. She was overlooked. And given her terrifying stage mother, the fact that Natalie did as much as she did was extraordinary." Peter Bogdanović
"She was the ultimate professional. I have so many wonderful memories of Natalie. I will think of those rather than the tragic ending." Ruth Gordon
Evening Post: August 12, 1899.
"She immediately alighted, caught hold of the astonished youth, and gave him a sound thrashing, using her fists in a scientific fashion…”
I would love to know what this means.
I think that might be code for “punched him in the balls with devastating accuracy”.
Joan Crawford by George Hurrell, circa 1932
