Loretta Young. . I’ve seen Loretta Young in films before, but I need to see more of her in the future since I really enjoy watching her onscreen.

“But one thing I can say is that I’m getting better, making less mistakes every day. My biggest mistake all my life was putting my total trust in certain people, trusting their judgement against my own, almost putting my destiny in their hands. Well, I’ve learned self-reliance now, and I do mean self; I don’t need others anywhere near as much as I used to. I depend on me. So I’m growing up.” — Ginger Rogers.

Remembering actress Joan Bennett (1910-1990), who passed away 29 years ago today 😞🙏🏼💖. Born in New Jersey, she was the youngest daughter of actor Richard Bennett (1870-1944) and his wife, actress Adrienne Morrison (1883-1940). Acting had been the family profession for generations and her older sisters, Constance Bennett (1904-1965) and Barbara Bennett (1906-1958), would also become actresses. Joan Bennett began dabbling in acting while still a child. She made her screen debut in 1916, but did not work steadily until reaching adulthood in the late 1920s. She would go on to appear in films such as “Puttin’ on the Ritz” (1930), “Moby Dick” (1930), “Little Women” (1933), “The Man in the Iron Mask” (1939), “The Woman in the Window” (1944), “Scarlet Street” (1945), “Father of the Bride” (1950), and “Father’s Little Dividend” (1951). By the late 1950s, Bennett was working more frequently in television, appearing in guest roles on shows like “Danger”, “Climax!”, and “Burke’s Law” before starring in the cult classic gothic soap opera, “Dark Shadows” from 1966-1971. She was married 4 times and divorced 3. While married to her 3rd husband, producer Walter Wanger (1894-1968), Wanger shot and wounded her agent Jennings Lang (1915-1996) in a jealous rage after spotting Lang in a car with Bennett. Thankfully, Lang survived and went on to live another 40+ years, happily marrying actress/singer Monica Lewis (1922-2015) a few years later. Wanger and Bennett remarkably remained married another 14 years before divorcing, but Bennett’s film career suffered from the resulting scandal. She had a total of 4 children: one by each of her first 2 marriages and 2 from her marriage to Wanger. Her final marriage lasted from 1978 until her death. Joan Bennett died of heart failure in 1990 at the age of 80 😞🙏🏼💖. #joanbennett #rip #gonebutnotforgotten #gonebutneverforgotten #oldhollywood #classichollywood #vintagehollywood #classicactress #vintageactress #oldhollywoodactress #classicbeauty #vintagebeauty #oldhollywoodbeauty #thebennettfamily #bennettsisters #classictv #vintagetv #classictelevision #vintagetelevision #darkshadows

Happy Heavenly Birthday to actress Fay Bainter (1893-1968) 💖💖💖. Born in California, Bainter began performing in the theater when she was still a child. Making her Broadway debut in 1912, she worked steadily on stage for the next 20+ years. Her first screen appearance came in “This Side of Heaven” (1934), and she would go on to appear in films such as “Quality Street” (1937), “Young Tom Edison” (1940), “Our Town” (1940), “Woman of the Year” (1942), “Journey for Margaret” (1942), “State Fair” (1945), and “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty” (1947). She received Academy Award nominations for her work in “White Banners” (1938) and “The Children’s Hour” (1961), winning the award for “Jezebel” (1938) (she was one of the few actresses to be nominated in the same year for different roles, one in the leading actress category, the other in the supporting actress category...her 1938 win was for the latter category). Bainter was married for over 40 years before the death of her husband. The couple had one son. Bainter’s niece was actress Dorothy Burgess (1907-1961), who was charged with manslaughter after her involvement in a fatal 1932 traffic collision. Burgess predeceased her aunt (as well as her mother, who was Bainter’s older sister) when she died from tuberculosis 😞🙏🏼💖. Fay Bainter passed away from pneumonia in 1968 at the age of 74 😞🙏🏼💖. She is buried in Arlington National Cemetery alongside her husband, who had served in the Navy. #faybainter #happybirthday #heavenlybirthday #happyheavenlybirthday #oldhollywood #vintagehollywood #classichollywood #classicactress #vintageactress #oldhollywoodactress #stageactress #academyawardwinner
