Welcome to Sal's Place, where old school coppers, villains, spies, and a blonde 007, rub shoulders with the great, good, and glamorous of the Golden Age of Hollywood

  • all-about-bette:

    My attention was drawn to the slashes of bright red lipstick, but even more stricking were her eyes. They were accentuated by blue eye shadow and layers of false lashes with brown, not black, mascara. It was the eyes that dominated.

    I was to learn that Bette customarily took this kind of care with her appearance when meeting someone for the first time. She shared with Mae West the belief that the first impression was the one that counted most and always remained. The next time, one met more of a private person and less of a star, someone who had put in fewer hours of preparation. By the third meeting, she could be quite casual, without her false eyelashes, without the carefully coiffed wig, but never without her bright red lips.

    Happy Birthday Stephen King! (September 21, 1947)
