Butterfly McQueen (1911-1995)

this is an old clip but brings back some of the wonderful moments in the career of this actress who died so tragically. this wd be her 100th birthday.

personal asides:

1) I first saw her on stage in "Curley McDimple"

2) we spoke at a 1989 screening of "GWTW" in West Virginia

3) in Gildzen at 50 Jonathan Williams wrote:
"It goes without saying that Alex will have sent Butterfly McQueen a birthday card on her 82nd anniversary (just the day before Elvis's)."
