Art deco bus

Handwritten page of a diary dated November 13, 1962

…  told me we were going on a bus tour and I about died. Boring times ten! But it turns out this bus was really old and I felt like maybe Greta Garbo could’ve taken a ride in the olden days in this very seat where I was sitting.

After Marilyn Monroe died last summer I read somewhere that she is the actress with the most charisma of all time. But I think not as much as the smoky and wonderful Greta Garbo or even Lauren Bacall (especially when she was talking to Humphrey Bogart). There was this starlet named Geraldine De Vorak who got to play Garbo’s double for a while and she looked so much like her that she started to get full of herself and started acting like a big star. But she didn’t have the charisma so not very many people have ever heard of her. When I get to Hollywood some day I’ll be very dark and mysterious BUT I won’t get conceited.
