Legitimately saddened by the passing of Celeste Holm. I don’t think I ever saw her in a movie I didn’t like.
Celeste Holm (1917-2012)
With the date set for “early in May,” Ida Lupino and Collier Young, Warner Bros. studio executive, have announced plans to wed. It will be a double-ring ceremony, according to the couple who have yet to decide the place. Both popular in the Hollywood film colony, Miss Lupino’s and Young’s names, have long been linked by columnists. It is a second marriage for each, the star having divorced actor Louis Hayward several years ago while Young’s divorce from his present wife becomes final April 26. Miss Lupino recently completed “Escape Me Never” at the studio where her husband-to-be is a production aide to Jack L. Warner.
Ida Lupino and Collier Young
1948 in La Jolla, Calif., Yesterday - Ida Lupino, motion-picture star, and Collier Young, film-studio executive married by the Rev. George Culbertson (right), were congratulated by the minister after the ceremony.
From a 2008 auction:
This is a wonderful 3 1/2 X 5 1/2 post card that Ida has autographed and sent to, no doubt, a fan in Surrey, England. I believe she addressed the card as the “p” in her autograph is rather unique and is exactly like the “p” in Cooper on the front of the post card. The date on the post card is June 25, 1948 and originated in Los Angeles.
She addressed it herself!? Precious!

To her many fans, Ida Lupino is best known as a fine dramatic actress partial to roles such as she has in her next 20th Century-Fox film, “Road House.” To her friends, she’s a merry mad-cap, who paints her own garden fence and walls, collects antiques, befriends all the stray cats she encounters and tops it off by being a good cook. By the nice white garden fence which was, honest to goodness, painted by the beauteous Ida, she poses in a favorite outfit, a pair of very brief white twill shorts and a high-necked sweater striped in grey, black and green. (Sept. 1948)
