Norma Jeane

If you’re from another planet, you might not know that today is Marilyn Monroe’s birthday – she was born in 1926 and died in 1962 from a barbiturate overdose.  Below, a bit of Marilyn in ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes.’

And below that, the one, the only, the original – Carol Channing. Ms. Channing celebrated her 90th birthday on January 21 and to her, many – if somewhat belated – happy returns.
