I passed Lauren Bacall - walking her Yorkie / on 5th Avenue in New York / in the early 80s
The street was deserted / and I knew who she was immediately / she was soooooo elegant - so much so - I still remember exactly what she was wearing (3/4 length camel hair coat (belted) with large lapels & scarf )
Robin William’s second wife Marsha Garces (Married from 1989 to 2010). She was the family maid who stole da Husband (Robin). Interestingly, she’s always referred to as “The Filipino Maid” - but I thought, “she don’t
look that Asian to me”. After some quick research I found out that her Dad is Filipino and her Mother is Finnish !!!!! That explains the Sisu she used to get her man :)
She was an American actress & singer in famous 1930’s musical films. She was one of the most influencial sopranos of her time, introducing opera to movie-going audiences & inspiring a generation of singers.
