Happy 91st birthday, Deborah Kerr ♥
“She has made 44 movies. Light romances and dark ones, epic adventures and costume dramas, comedies, and even one of our most beloved musicals. She played nuns and nannies, nice ladies and occasionally, ladies who weren’t so very nice. But always a lady. If there was a main line to her career it was as a surrogate mom to troubled teenagers, to haunted children, and most often, to men who had somehow forgotten to grow up - until they met her, that is. In her singular way, she combines warmth with elegance, passion with patience, common sense with uncommon wit, great strength with even greater vulnerability. For three decades she has been a radiant presence on our screens. This year the Academy’s Board of Governors has awarded an Honorary Oscar to this lovely woman whose name is Deborah Kerr.” - Glenn Close at the 66th Academy Awards.
