This Effing Lady

"Listen, dear, you couldn't write 'fuck' on a dusty venetian blind."
Coral Browne (23 July 1913 – 29 May 1991) to a Hollywood writer who had criticised the work of Alan Bennett.

  1. Nice to be reminded of her. I saw her in THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST in LA in the mid-1970s. Delicious she was.

    I understand that on occasion, she liked the girls.

  2. Miss Browne had predilections for both girls and boys over the years, as, I believe, did her last husband Vincent Price... Jx
