I would love to shake the hand of the person who had the wild audacity to create this pants-pissing, hilarious cartoon urging young people to vote. It touches on so many themes: hipster culture, superhero worship, incredible amounts of gratuitous sex and violence and even dolphins. However, it also makes the point that personal involvement matters. The GREATEST political Get-Out-the-Vote Ad ever created–bar NONE.
To those whimpering that this is too offensive: really? Been to the movies lately? Voter apathy in this country is way too high. Any means by which we can get more people to vote and continue to be a part of the law-making process can help.
Born in OH
Queen of Silence
Daughter of the American Revolution
Her father disappeared
Her mother was an actress
Her young sister always feared
Lill would die at any moment
Becuz the good die young
They’d sell popcorn at the old Majestic
next door to their mother’s Candy Kitchen
Word came of her father in OK
She went and cared for him until he died
The Majestic burned down
Mother moved them to NYC
next door to little Mary Pickford
Lill danced with Bernardt when she was 12
She was Griffith’s angel
Garbo was her apprentice
“The Birth of a Nation”
“Those little virgins,
after five minutes you got sick of playing them”
She could outshoot Huston and Lancaster
Outlaw Jennings, the one who taught her
To Gielgud’s Hamlet, she was “lewd Ophelia”
She cared for the Griffiths as they died
She was there, bedside.
“I never approved of talkies…
Silents were so much more expressive!”
75 years in showbiz.
No Man. No kids.
The last words of her long career were,
“Good night, dear.”
Didn’t get the nomination
“At least I never lost to Cher.”
