I just finished watching a documentary on Turner Classic Movies about Luise Rainer. Occasion: Her 101st birthday. Born in 1910, she is a two-time Academy Award winner, taking home Best Actress in her second American Film, “The Great Ziegfeld” in 1936 followed by another the next year for her portrayal of an unassuming Chinese woman in “The Good Earth“, stealing the honors out from under the likes of Garbo.
She was married for 47 years to her second husband, an Englishman, of whom she says, “He was idiotically in love with me” and “He thought I was the center of the Universe, which was pretty good!”
I think those are damn fine pre-requisites in a mate, and closely fit my own criteria. Proof that the gap between the younger and older generations is not so wide as some would lead us to believe!
May you live may more happy and charming years, Grand Dame Luise Rainer. Mwah!
