We celebrate the life of Joan Rivers, friend of a friend, who proved that having a passion, something to love, provided a woman success and a good life, even if you didn't have a man in it. Our mutual acquaintance called her "the best dressed woman in Hollywood," quite a compliment for one who lived into her 80s. And, we celelbrate Lauren Bacall, who visited my home town a few years ago, and who mesmerized with that honeyed, roaring voice. We loved her as the mother of another excellent woman in "The Mirror has Two Faces," a film of which Pym would have approved. There will be more posts on the Excellent Women of TV in the fifties and sixties, shows that Pym must have seen and speculated about.
