  1. It's wonderful to see how all these beauty's of bygone time's were our height's and not like to day's trailing into the cloud's

    xLOL Nora & LOLA:)

  3. I adore Jane Powell so much! Seven Brides for Seven Brothers is one of my favorite movies and I loved her with Howard Keel.

  4. Oh I haven't seen such young pictures of her before.

  5. She looks so sweet and "girl next door", awww! I had no idea she was so pint sized, I'm 5"2, and would be an inch and a half taller than her - something that I rarely get to say about anyone in the Hollywood limelight! ;D

    Wishing you a wonderful day, sweetie - big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica
