Linda Darnell - 'What I Got Don't Need Beads' - Episode 23

Linda Darnell was hardcore. A Madonna face with an ice heart. She was also funny, generous, extremely giving of her time, loved Mexican food and palling around with her bestie Ann Miller. Instead of being labelled a 'tragedy', we here at Any Ladle's Sweet wish to celebrate Linda by discussing 3 of her finest roles: Forever Amber (1947), A Letter to Three Wives (1949) and No Way Out (1950). Come children... Resources: A Letter to Three Wives (1949) Dir. Joseph L. Mankiewicz [DVD] 20th Century Fox. Davis, R.L.
