Happy Birthday Deborah Kerr!!

(September 30th, 1921 - October 16th, 2007)

"When I was under contract to MGM, with people like poor Robert Taylor and so many others, the cinema’s job was solely entertainment. It filled a public need then. Now the cinema serves so many other purposes; it functions as psychiatrist, politician, message-maker, money-maker and, incidentally, entertainer. But it’s no good regretting that things are different. Times have to change."

All I know about getting something that you want is that there are three essential things: wanting, trying and getting the opportunity, the breaks. None works alone without the others. Wanting is basic. Trying is up to you. And the breaks - I do know this, they always happen.

Deborah Kerr in From Here to Eternity (1953)

"I slept in Frank’s pajamas, at least the top half of them, and the next day we walked along the empty beach, me in the bottom half of my travel suit and Frank’s jacket. Naturally a photographer was lying in wait and snapped a shot of us, barefoot, holding hands. I’ve always thought it was a sad little photograph, a sad little commentary on our lives then. We were simply two young people so much in love, and the world wouldn’t leave us alone for a second." – Ava Gardner
