A Legend?


Photo grabbed from imdb.com

My morning paper contained a little blurb about Zsa Zsa Gabor and her recent surgery. The headline proclaims "Legendary Actress Recovering After Surgery." WHAT? When did she become legendary? She's the old-time version of Nicole Richie, for crying out loud. I checked imdb.com, and yes, she had a part in John Huston's Moulin Rouge, and a decent role in Lili, but most of her roles were in B movies or on TV, and in many of those TV appearances, she played herself. (Maybe they confused Gabor with Garbo, who really was legendary?!)

She really is more famous for being famous. Does that make her a legendary actress, or just an old, famous lady? And, oh, I hope she improves after this surgery. I don't wish her any ill will, after all.

NOTE: I posted this one on my own blog, too, but I felt it was open for discussion here with the rest of the film freaks!

Wasn't she in Green Acres, or was that the other one.

Yeah, I always get the Tilly's confused too, although one is much sluttier.

The other one, Eva, was in Green Acres (and IMO, Eva was the classier of the two Gabors.)

"although one is much sluttier."

They're both pretty slutty, in an endearing sort of way.

Didn't one of them (Tilly, not Gabor) have Colin Firth's baby? I'm mad at that one.

Wasn't there a third Gabor sister who did even less than Zsa Zsa?

Joe the Troll said...

Yes there was - Magda. And Zsa Zsa has the same birthday as my mom.

Are you talking to yourself, Joe?
