“My son tells me, ‘Do you realize you are the last one? The last person who was an eyewitness to the golden age?’ Young people, even in Hollywood, ask me, ‘Were you really married to Humphrey Bogart?’ ‘Well, yes, I think I was,’ I reply. You realize yourself when you start reflecting—because I don’t live in the past, although your past is so much a part of what you are—that you can’t ignore it. But I don’t look at scrapbooks. I could show you some, but I’d have to climb ladders, and I can’t climb.” 

RIP Betty Joan Perske (September 16, 1924 – August 12, 2014)

This may have been my absolute favorite thing at the show. It’s the “real” body of the Frankenstein Monster unearthed from the ruins of castle Frankenstein in Vassaria! This thing look 100% real in person. The figure was about 7’ tall.
