“Glamour is so mysterious and fragile. It’s a fascination with the unknown. But how is glamour possible now when we know everything there is to know about our celebrities?

Margo Channing is a star of the theater. She made her first stage appearance at the age of four in Midsummer Night’s Dream. She played a fairy and entered, quite unexpectedly, stark naked. She has been a star ever since. Margo is a great star, a true star. She never was or will be anything less or anything else.

Happy Birthday Bette!
