A tribute to a Goddess of film.
I have one more card to show you, and it's one that is very important to me. I was going to include this in yesterday's mail post, but it deserves its own. Maybe I'm "selling" this card a bit more than I should.
Brittany Murphy was an adorable person and a good actress who met her end much too soon. As a teenager, I watched Clueless more times than I should have, where she played the new girl in school adopted by Cher. She played one of the patients in Girl, Interrupted, voiced Luanne on King of the Hill, and was an airhead in one of my favorite movies, Drop Dead Gorgeous. She played sexy and cute at the same time, and could be dramatic as good as any other actor. Many of her later films were forgettable, but even so they were still enjoyable. Brittany was one of my favorite actresses and I was deeply saddened to hear about her death in 2009. I recommend any of the above movies, Uptown Girls, or The Ramen Girl. I'm glad she was included in a Razor Pop Century release, and until recently this card has been quite elusive.
Her presence in a movie was like a kiss of sunshine.
