Oliver Twisted

One of Felix In Hollywood's favorite glamor girls, Edna Mae Oliver, celebrates her 127th birthday today!


My affection for this 'voice of snarky reason' is so great that she was the topic of a post in my first thirty days of life here in blogland.  To re-live the glory and excitement, go here.

That explains why there were so many Edna Mae films on TCM today.

I researched her with the idea of doing a post on her birthday also, but I couldn't find the right spin.
Now that I have read yours, I realize that I could have written about how we look alike!
