    Ah, the good old days, when there was no enchilada sauce on enchiladas. Is that even a possibility now? I can’t remember the last time I had them served this way.

    She was so sophisticated. I always wondered the real reason behind hers and Cedric Gibbons’ divorce. He was so devoted to her…

    I need some real early hollywood devotees in the South Bay of LA here so we can view these memories together-
