      Aw, drat! You beat me to it. I remember getting quite a crush on her when, as a hormonal junior high school boy, I saw Dr. Zhivago on its first release. (Julie Christie and Geraldine Chaplain, though about the same age as Miss Tushingham, were playing characters that seemed a tad too old to make for a plausible romantic fantasy.)

    • Thanks!

      I knew her name right away. “The Knack (and how to get it)” was a favorite 1960s film of mine.

    Prediction: The Antonin Scalia funeral will not last as long as Jack Layton’s funeral.

    Ah! Rita Tushingham in a taste of honey, my favorite british movie when I was 16 yo.
    SCOTUS will now tilt full left. I hope the congress will do their job right when obama
    select the replacement.

    This is a great remembrance of Antonin Scalia. Just one small episode that says a lot:

    Definitely, it’s Rita Tushingham. I recognize her from Dr. Zhivago.

    Check out Dark Roasted Blend for its compilations of stars from past decades. You might have to dig around a little bit to find the David Collard’s blog pieces but he does nice work as well.

    A classic for contemplation. ..
