Inside Dope on Mary Astor



No, don't misread me, Mary Astor was not a dope fiend! My favorite blogger just posted a wonderful interview with Mary Astor's daughter, Marylyn Roh. Wonderful insight to Mary Astor and some great photos, too! Her daughter at 20 was almost the spitting image of Mom. Reading her comments and responses is a delight.

I can't add to the Siren's post, but it's a must read. Do it, go here now.

The divine Mary Astor is well loved by this film fan both on film and in her two wonderful books, My Story and A Life on Film. Curmedgeonly or not, in the end I would have loved to talk to her, it seems there was not a lot of BS-ing around, she called a spade a spade and how can you not love that? She was also stunningly gorgeous and that throaty voice gets me every time.

I get a kick out of the way her daughter just got in touch with the siren! It gives hope to all historical researchers......
