The Historical Birthday-Tea Party 31st January

Lets have a big hand and a whoop or two for Miss Tallulah Bankhead 1903-1968. Tallulah (her real name!) was a good actor who played a lot of bad women and I found this hilarious quote from Carl Elliot

I fear Tallulah has suffered from the sometimes swashbuckling, sometimes naughty characters she played on stage and screen.

While Tallulah had this to say

Only good girls keep diaries. Bad girls don’t have time.

I’m as pure as the driven slush.

I don’t think she was joking, and she was certainly unrepentant, leaving hospital after an emergency hysterectomy she said Don’t think this has taught me a lesson!

She has been linked with numerous women (Katherine Cornell for one) as well as men, described herself as ambisextrous, and I think basically would shag anything with a pulse, though she made a fuss when asked to play a lesbian on screen.

I’m not sure we’d get on, but she’d probably just gatecrash the party if she wasn’t invited, so I’m just sealing the envelope now!
