Happy 70th, Goldie!

Carole Lombard's sex appeal was apparent to all in this semi-risque pose for Pathe photographer William E. Thomas in the late 1920s...but as time went on, Lombard proved she had far more to offer, both as an actress and as a person.

The same can be said for the subject of today's entry, a worthy heir to the Lombard tradition who at first was primarily known for her giggle, good looks and great legs:

That's Goldie Hawn, of course, shown in her 1970 sex comedy romp with Peter Sellers, "There's a Girl in My Soup." Goldie's still a stunner, as this shot from January with daughter Kate Hudson makes evident (mom's on the left)...

...but Hawn, who turns 70 today, has developed into so much more. A fine comedic actress and smart businesswoman who produced her string of hit movies in the 1980s and 1990s, Goldie hasn't made a film since 2002's "The Banger Sisters" with Susan Sarandon. But has she been inactive? Far from it.

A philanthropist and humanitarian, Goldie has worked on behalf of children and the less fortunate. She regularly appears at international functions, using her celebrity status to benefit others. All in all, a pretty fantastic life for a youg girl from Takoma Park, Md., whose dream in her youth merely was to dance.

When Goldie turned 62 in 2007, I celebrated with an entry (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/52706.html). Check it out, as much of it still applies today. Happy birthday, Ms. Hawn!
