For one thing, she's so obviously intelligent, it's one of my favorite things about her, and that definition is really what associated itself with the word bright in my mind this morn. Then of course she glowed [no, absolutely beamed] off screen. She was so full of life and had that oh-so-perfectly-wicked sense of humor. She shone on screen too, though. I mean, she must have been one of the loveliest creatures God ever did create and she had such beautiful comedic timing.
Thanks to film we'll always have Carole - and her smile and her voice and her pretty face. We'll always have Godfrey and the shower, and we'll always have Maria Tura. We'll always have our profane angel. We'll always have Carole.
Happy Birthday You Beautiful Angel, You.
(October 6, 1908 - January 16, 1942)
The sun above is shining -
Bright days just for you.
Reflected on your golden curl.
Glowing without a cue,
Our hearts beat for you all the while,
Like they'll always do.
Your life - but half - was lived in full -
Oh how we love you -
