Happy Birthday, Paulette!

Today is Paulette Goddard's 99th birthday!

The gorgeous, witty Paulette is one of my favorite's. She always had a great line (whether on screen or off). Many have seen her as the deliciously catty Miriam in The Women, but she made lots of other great films too. My personal favorite is probably The Ghost Breakers. Because I've seen it a billion-zillion times!

An example of Paulette:
"Actors and actresses who say they never go to see their own pictures are talking through their hats. You don't have to be a Freud to know that the most fascinating person in the world - actors or anybody - is yourself."

^You know you want that hat!

C. Parker over at Starlet Showcase did a very fun photo post of her, which also links to a great post he did of her last year! Check it out.

Definitely. She would've been great. Would have made the film completely different though.
