Don't you love Coral Browne? So imperiously elegant yet pratfall-funny and blessed with a filthy mouth (at least according to a friend of mine who was a friend of hers).

The House of Beauty and Culture said...

AL - have you heard what she said regarding Ms York?

An Aesthete's Lament said...

Do divulge.

The House of Beauty and Culture said...

When doing the sex scene our dear Coral kept gagging -- not because of the scene, but because of Ms York's hygiene. Or rather lack of hygiene, seems she and Mr Soap were complete strangers.

An Aesthete's Lament said...

Oh. My. Presumably the never-shy Coral said something direct about it. And withering.
