The golden age of Hollywood. I first saw the beautiful Gloria Stuart in James Whale’s 1932 spook-thriller The Old Dark House but most know her as the character Rose, whose memories tell the story of Titanic in James Cameron’s blockbuster. Gloria was born on a dining table in Santa Monica and went on to lead an incredibly rich life, full of acting, art and activism, but not without heartache. She was a founding member of the Screen Actors Guild, formed the Hollywood Anti-Nazi League and was friends with Dorothy Parker and Christopher Isherwood. Truly a Hollywood icon, Gloria passed away in 2010 at the age of 100. #hollywood #walkoffame #losangeles #lastory #gloriastuart #seeingstars (at Hollywood Walk of Fame)

"Sometimes as we mature, we put aside our childhood dreams or passions in order to build a more stable, conventional life. We naturally seek comfort, whether it’s financial, emotional, whatever. I’m against compromise in just about any form and I’d resist giving up anything that was important to me in order to live in a more comfortable way.” ~ Alice Bag, interview with Brandeis University The Justice. Photo by @JennileeMarigomen for Zero 1 Magazine.
