Did you know that if you Google the term ‘old maid,’ you get photos of Bette Davis?
That’s rather unexpected.
Apparently the screen legend was in a movie called The Old Maid in 1939. (I feel better not remembering it.)
In the film, an ex-lover arrives on her wedding day and “sets in motion a chain of events which will alter her and her cousin’s lives forever.”
Hmmm…wonder who ends up being the old maid in this scenario? I ask because according to the calendar, today is Old Maid’s Day.
I am tickled by the idea, the phrasing and now the discovery that there is a movie of the same name. Might need to rent it to pay the proper homage to this oh-so-archaic of holidays.
But hey, if the shoe fits…
