Imagine your icon owning cows, but the cows escape. There are now cows everywhere. Your icon breaks down in tears.

The man I married, Gary Cooper, taught me to look at life each day through new eyes. To see beyond the obvious, to look for the “something else” that is always present…

It’s a Wonderful Life (1946) dir. Frank Capra 


Robert Montgomery and Joan Crawford for Untamed, 1929


Happy Birthday William Horatio Powell | July 29th, 1892 March 5th, 1984

His careful attention to the neceties of grooming; his perfectly tailored suits, spotless cuffs, and collars; his orotund voice curled around well-turned phrases; the deferential way he bowed his head slightly when being introduced all would have helped him gain entry at any elite, leather-chair-and-brandy-snifter men’s club.

I’m not a ladies’ man. I haven’t the physical characteristics for one thing. Not handsome. Someone like Valentino should have played this part. Not Bill Powell.
Unfortunately, or perhaps it is fortunate that I have always been forced to stand on my acting ability. I haven’t a personality such as Jack Gilbert`s, for instance, that attracts women and makes them like me for myself. When I am on the screen I must make them forget me entirely and think only of my acting”

Powell is to dialogue as Fred Astaire is to dance. His delivery is so droll and insinuating, so knowing and innocent at the same time, that it hardly matters what he’s saying.

errolflynns: "Ahh I never noticed that Scarlett and Mary were similar, but now I absolutely see it! A+ posts. :)"

hee thank youu :)))

tbh i always though the main similarity between them was their sense of belonging/love they have for their land. like both would go to great lengths to save Tara/Downton. But after reading the book/rewatching the film i started noticing some other similarities as well. I guess some might seem really far fetched but i still in essence they somewhat similar.
