Today is my final 50 Friendly Faces post. I started this challenge the second day and got caught up doing the other days that I didn’t fo backwards to do Day 1 until last week.
50 Friendly Days Day 1 – “Famous face”
Quite frankly, this prompt held me up. What face should I choose? It was the choice that delayed the sketch so long but in the end, I chose an actor who was a Hollywood Legend.
I remember watching his movies on TV with my mom. He was a pretty big deal. My Uncle Joe always resembled him, and still does. Maybe a distant relative.
This legend had some issues in his personal life, which is sad. Hollywood wasn’t gold behind the scenes, especially then. It was dirty and tarnished but the movies they made were stuff of legends, including this fellow, who was a favorite of mine, for all his flaws. I liked him because he made me laugh with his dry wit.
I’ll let you guess. We’ll see how well I did….
