Happy 99th Birthday Ruby!!

Cuban full-page colour print of Ruby, sponsored by Colgate and Palmolive, date presumably 1934.

It's Ruby's 99th birthday today. (See prior post.)

I was watching the Olympic Games closing ceremony from Beijing yesterday. Watching the artistic construction of the "memory tower," I couldn't help but think of Busby Berkeley's layer-cake in "By A Waterfall" from Footlight Parade. If that wasn't coincidence enough, TCM was televising Footlight Parade and that actual sequence directly opposite to the closing ceremony sequence. Somewhere, Ruby must be smiling.
