I spent last Saturday with him, and it’s a pleasure to be with such a person, because he is so very generous, and he’s got so many things to tell you. You can only just absorb and observe.” - via

Burt Bacharach & Angie Dickinson

Burt Bacharach, an American music producer and pianist is known for his chart-topping tunes dating back from the mid-1950s through the 1980s. Here with have David along with girlfriend Angie Dickinson at the time, enjoying some rays in a very relaxed and shaded corner located in their garden during the 1960s. Mister Bacharach is wearing a favorite piece of mine as mentioned before for the F/W season, a turtleneck (white), with a simple pair of plaid trousers. Bacharach appears to be penning his next hit perhaps? If you wanna get a clear idea of what this gentleman was all about, than let his musique speak for itself!

From a 1970s show called 'Shindig'. Features Stevie performing Bacharach's 'Alfie' on Chromatic Harmonica.

Betty White

On how she became involved: “We did the pilot, and three weeks later it got picked up for ten shows. I never saw a quicker turnaround in my life. They asked if I would do some more, and I explained that wasn’t our deal. They kept going, ‘What if you only had to work three days…’ what if this, what if that. They made so many concessions that I was embarrassed to keep saying no.”

- Betty White's response to Emmy magazine’s Issue #7 question are how she became involved with her "Hot in Cleveland" castmates as she channels Botticelli’s Venus.
