I Can’t Help Being Young, I Can’t Help Being Pretty
The fourth Baron Oranmore and Browne was the longest-serving peer in the House of Lords, passing at the age of one hundred. In addition to that, he is possibly the only Lord who never once spoke his mind in the Parliament. In addition to that, in 1951 when he was fifty-years old, he married thirty-six-year-old Constance Vera Stevens, a famous British actress working with the name Sally Gray.
It was his third marriage, and her first and only marriage. They would remain together the rest of their lives, but their marriage was a secret from almost everyone for the first two years. Finally, at the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, they attended as husband and wife.
Sally Gray’s father was a taxi driver in London and her mother was a ballet dancer. Sally learned ballet as a youngster and was easily able to play the part of a young ballerina in this story. She is Jenny Pearl, born to a working-class mother and father. Fortunately, Jenny grew to become one of the most beautiful young ladies in London, and her rise to the top of the ballet world was all but assured.
Unfortunately, she met a man. A dashing, happy, positive, devil-may-care sculptor who is full of life, adventure, and love. They argue, they disagree, they insult each other, . . . . And they cannot bear to be apart. Finally, the day comes when he asks Jenny to leave home and live with him. “Are you asking me to marry you?” she asks with eyes as big as the moon.
“No,” he replies, “An artist must always be a free soul, not bothered by marriage and the bonds that would destroy my free and artistic spirit.”
Why does everything lovely always have to end? Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn drizzled with plenty of warm melted butter and enjoy the show.
