I didn't know Esther well. She was a friend of friends. After she passed away, there was a box filled with snapshots she'd taken. Many were recognizable theatre celebs of long ago. Other photos were of her and others. Some photos had inscriptions on the reverse, which I've noted. Others had nothing. This box was destined for the trash bin. I saved it.

When it comes to Mae, there are just too many great quotes to choose from.

"I used to be Snow White, but I drifted" is one of my favorites.

and let's not even mention, "Myra Breckinridge" and Mae with an earpiece hidden under the wig so that she could be fed her lines. Zowie!
