The ravishingly beautiful Deborah Kerr was born on this date in 1921.

She appeared in The King and I, From Here to Eternity, The Hucksters, The Night of the Iguana, Quo Vadis, Tea and Sympathy, Separate Tables.

I remember seeing her the first time I went to Radio City Music Hall in 1957 - the movie was "Tea And Sympathy". Probably most people remember her from "An Affair to Remember" with Cary Grant. There was never a more romantic film!

She received many nominations for an Oscar but never won. She was given an honorary one before her death on Oct 16, 2007

Thought she was fab in "Tea and Sympathy," one of the most bizarre movies ever made!
