in my day a legend was a legend.
& as a movie-mad young man I loved the Blackglama ads. this one of Judy Garland was one of her most memorable poses. & of course Andy Warhol appropriatd it for his famous print.
I still remember the poses of Gloria Swanson & Claudette Colbert & Lana Turner. but my all-time fave was that of Barbara Stanwyck who displayd her great spirit with such flare. now there was a legend.
the reason I dredge all this up is the current issue of Vanity Fair. it includes a new "what becomes a legend most?" ad. & boy do I feel old. I had no idea who the young woman in the ad was. I had to go to the company's website to discover it was Elizabeth Hurley. I rememberd she was a model who used to live with Hugh Grant before he pickd up the hooker but I had to google her to discover she's actually appeard in some movies. I don't think I've seen any of them.
Elizabeth Hurley is a lucky young lady. joining the ranks of Garland & Stanwyck. perhaps after I'm dead she'll actually become a legend. but right now I'd say Blackglama is really stretching.
