95th birthday of Hollywood star Ann Blyth. The photo above is from her 1951 film I'll Never Forget You, one of my favorites. She co-stars with Tyrone Power in a haunting time-travel romance. It's a beautiful film, and her work is deeply moving. I hope you get a chance to see it soon.Happy birthday to a stellar actress and a lovely woman.
