i will never get over the fact that jean arthur was in her 40s in the talk of the town
Happy Birthday Jean Arthur | 17 October, 1900 - 19 June, 1991
The underlying characteristic of her playing, no matter what the role, was that the world was a funny place, but not fun. Her comic genius was founded in a combination of fear, sadness and sweetness: her eyes flashed in indignation, flooded in dismay or blinked in disbelief; her lips quivered when confronted with injustice; but she could also assume a bold assurance of being believed no matter how blatantly she was lying.
