oo la, tallulah!

from 35.00

#art/#history: born 31 january in 1902, tallulah bankhead was a whiskey-voiced libertine with a social conscience. an alabama native whose legendary turns on stage & screen (you may've seen her in hitchcock's 'lifeboat') were nearly dwarfed by her infamy. rumoured to have cavorted with garbo, dietrich & billie holiday, tallulah told the doctor who performed her hysterectomy (necessitated by venereal disease): 'don't think this has taught me a lesson.'
a staunch supporter of civil rights, tallulah booed segregationist south carolina governor, strom thurmond, when he appeared during harry truman's inauguration parade. wouldn't you just love to have knocked back a few pints with her? wild times.

try me!
