The beautiful Celeste Holm was born on this day (April 29th) in 1917 in Brooklyn, New York. She brought so much charisma and talent to EVERY single performance, often stealing scenes from household names… she had a quality (much like Joan Blondell, Thelma Ritter, S.Z. Sakall, and a select group of others) that made you want to keep your eyes on her and your ears tuned into whatever it was she had to say.
You dare not look away, EVEN if you wanted to.
Some of my Personal Favorite Celeste Holms Films:
- Come to the Stable
- All About Eve
- High Society
- Champagne for Caesar
- The Snake Pit
- Tom Sawyer (’73)
- Gentleman’s Agreement
- Cinderella (TV Movie)
- The Tender Trap
The films above are jut the tip of her wonderful filmography which also includes numerous wonderful guest appearances on tv.
Thank you for all the wonderful entertainment, Celeste Holm, and happy birthday!
