Hollywood's favorite aunt

on screen everyone from Marion Davies to Deanna Durbin calld her auntie. she even playd Mark Twain's Aunt Polly more than once.  but the aunt that made Clara Blandick famous was Em of Kansas.

the actress was 81 when she killd herself 50 years ago today. Rick Castro -- whose Antebellum Gallery is within walking distance of where Blandick died -- askd me to write a poem for his blog to mark the anniversary.
