Classic Movie Legend Tribute: Eleanor Parker


Happy Birthday to Classic Movie Legend, Eleanor Parker, born June 26 in 1922!

Eleanor Parker, a versatile actress if I ever saw one. Her range was so expansive she would later be dubbed “Woman of a Thousand faces.” So, to celebrate this great star’s birthday, let us look at some of those (beautiful) faces.

    Beautiful!!!! I’ve always loved Eleanor Parker. Unfortunately because she didn’t want a lot of fame because of her love of privacy, she didn’t do a lot of publicity for her films and is not well known today except for The Sound of Music.
