I've finally gotten to the bottom of things...

So read the epitaph of the writer and actress Ilka Chase.

Starring as Lisa Vale in the classic Now, Voyager

In a 1955 television commercial for the Ford Thunderbird.

Smart people have always known...taste and know how are just as important as cost.

Who better qualified to be an arbiter of taste than the only child of legendary Vogue editor in chief, Edna Woolman Chase?

Ilka Chase also said, America's best buy is a telephone call to the right man.

Isn't she wonderful? I hear a voice very like her own inside my head on occasion. " a veritible symphony".

Ilka Chase with her fluty voice out there pushing Thunderbird cars...just made my head spin.
Priceless. Thank you for this snippet of antiquity.
