“Give me a sense of purpose, a real sense of purpose, now!” – The Pretenders/Chrissie Hynde
This isn’t trending like a white or gold (or is it blue?) dress (really Facebook?!?), but the Academy of Arts and Sciences did give the grand Carla Laemmle (1909-2014) some post-Oscars memoriam recognition for her contribution to motion pictures.
As one of the premium members of Universal’s film dynasty, Carla appeared in Lon Chaney’s classic silent The Phantom of the Opera and spoke the first lines in the beloved Dracula, featuring the one and only Bela Lugosi.
Since her death this fall, Laemmle’s family has, frequently, updated her fan page with new photos and interviews.
