  2. She does look fey in that picture.

    I can't help but think that had it been present day there would have been so many more changes to the hair, outfit, and even her name to make her more marketable to the public.

    I agree. But she's quite marketable the way she is, that's what's wrong with our modern society.

  5. Ah, but back in the day, Maude was considered a lovely name. Who would think a name such as Clara Bow would be on everyone's lips?

    (My sister always said if she had a daughter, she'd name her Paulina Maude; God sent her two sons!)
