"It profits me but little that a vigilant authority always protects the tranquillity of my pleasures and constantly averts all dangers from my path, without my care or concern, if this same authority is the absolute master of my liberty and my life."

--Alexis de Tocqueville, Democracy in America

Girl of the Day - Jeanne Crain

 It's Jeanne Crain's birthday.   I can't frankly remember what I saw her in... probably 1945's State Fair... but for some reason I remember her as one of the great beauties of mid-century Hollywood.   Her career, like so many actresses', petered out, undoubtedly partly because she had seven children.    Good for her.
