Looks like the illuminated ones actually do depart in threes, as this week Heaven's Hollywood has two brand new stars . . . actress Maria Schneider, star of Bertolucci's intensely erotic 1972 film, Last Tango in Paris, and Gladys Horton, lead vocalist for '60s Doo-Wop girl group, The Marvelettes (who were an inspiration for the creation of The Supremes). Both women should be honored for participating in the creation of art that expanded people's hearts, in result, helping to pave a more liberated creative path. To begin the honoring, i'm off to spin my favorite Marvelettes 45, and will be moving Antonioni's 1975 film, The Passenger to the top of my Netflix Queue, so I can watch Maria in action opposite Jack Nicholson . . .
