Holm sweet Holm

Last night, at the wonderful Ball for Life, I was introduced to a slightly bewildered Celeste Holm, who is 90 years old and still beautiful. Here she is back in 1956 with Frank:

I told the grande dame that my book, which I was toting (natch), was intended for single women who had not been chaste — to show them how they could change their lives.
