"Catch My Star" Winner

The first "Catch My Star" winner is ..........Big Drum Roll.......................................Leslie Ehrlich! Leslie, was the first to answer all four questions right! Her answers were: Bill of Divorcement, Topper, Wizard of Oz, and Ziegfield Follies.

Her prize is a replica silkie of Billie Burke(that I am going to print up), and a squishie. Billie Burke is the most famous of the actresses that I had found.

Other things that I found out about her besides she has a ton of movies and Broadway shows that she had played in is as follows.

She was born Mary William Ethelbert Appleton "Billie" Burke on Augest 7, 1884. She was married to Florenz Ziegfield Jr. Both her and her husband lost thir money during the stock market crash in the 1920's, That facilitated her come back to the film world inBill of Divorcement, where she played Katherine Hepburns mother in the film. Her husband passed away while she was making this film. She had only one oscar nomination and it was from the film Merrily We Live.

I have enjoyed learning about her life and career very much. I just hadent relized that she played in films that I absolutly enjoy to watch. Now I am going to watch for her every time I sit down to watch the classic film channel!

Next month I will put up another actress. Be ready the other ladies are not as easy as our Billie Burke!
