History...  
It's amazing how the web can pull you from one subject to another. And the fascinating things you learn. For those of you who are interested in knowing about three very interesting women from Hollywood's history that you've probably never even heard of, check out the following links.

Mabel Normand
Mary Miles Minter
Olive Thomas

These are the basics, all three have excellent linkage at the bottom of the page...

Yes, I know, most people will be bored by this entry. This entry isn't for everyone, it's for the people who might be as fascinated as I am...

I wanna watch a bunch of movies from them all, now. It's amazing how important they all were and how much they've been forgotten now. I mean, Thomas had people fainting at her funeral...

It's sad how quickly some people are forgotten after their deaths. And you know we'll have to wait at least 50 years after the Cruiseoid is dead before people will forget him.

Let's hope he doesn't martyr himself in some James Dean/Marily Monroe way, or we'll NEVER be rid of him...

I think, if he's made it this far... the only way that'll happen is something like a plane crash a la Patsy Cline.

This is one of my favorites... Although the article doesn't mention that she was a race car driver...

I'd heard of her and her death, but never knew what a wide swathe she painted in life. Huh. She seems interesting, thanks...

Wow... you're right, I'd never heard of any of them, and they're really interesting... thanks for posting that.
