I'm sure I'm not the only one who was glued to my television yesterday for Jean Harlow's TCM Summer Under the Stars day. As long time readers know, I'm generally not a fan of Summer Under the Stars. I used to be, but just like with Oscar month, is tending to feature more and more recent material, 1970's stars, and the like. When I think of the term "classic film star" I don't think Angie Dickinson, featured August 18th. I understand she is well known, had a lot of roles, and is part of pop culture, but when I think 'classic' she's probably about the last person I would think of. It's all about context. Bette Davis or Angie Dickinson - which one is more of a 'classic film star'? There's no comparison. And yes, Summer Under the Stars features Bette Davis and Spencer Tracy for the umpteenth time.

Marion Davies Rancho Mirage, California estate at 1 Von Dehn Road is for sale. It was built in 1956 for the well known actress. It is 13,908 square feet with 9 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms. Clearly every room has their own bathroom with more to spare. It resides on almost 3 acres. The asking price is almost $4 million. Clearly, the interior has been redone recently and wouldn't have been anything Marion would have used.
