In RochelleM’s Post 10 Life Lessons from Audrey Hepburn, Lesson #10 certainly pertains to TCM’s Star of the Month Marie Dressler 1869-1934.
Marie was born four years after the end of the civil war and died at age 65 at the beginning of Hitler’s rise to power. She brought laughter and tears during her many performances beginning at age 14 from chorus girl to comedian in vaudeville then from stage to screen in the infancy of filmmaking.
An MGM girl Marie was a Best Actress Oscar winner at age 61 and Best Actress nominee at age 63. Marie is most remembered for her performance as Carlotta Vance opposite Jean Harlow in the movie Dinner at Eight. She is a classic example of Lesson #10.
Lesson #10 – Expectation: People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed; never throw out anyone.
