For the past two days we’ve been celebrating Dorothy Lamour.
As we mentioned, Joe interviewed Lamour many times and almost wrote a book with the lady. She was a classic Hollywood star.
Also as mentioned, Lamour was born exactly 100 years ago today.
The photo above is a candid shot of Lamour at the height of her stardom in the mid- 1940s as she’s giving an autograph to none other than our late pal Donald Gordon. No average autograph hound, Gordon worked at Columbia Pictures for a while, and made personal friends with many stars of the time. And Lamour was anything but unfriendly.
Below is a shot of our birthday girl with one of her frequent co-stars and great friends.
