Happy 107th, Mary! (You're aging very well.)

Happy 107th, Mary! You wear it well, you minx.

Happy Birthday to Mary Astor, who was born on May 3, 1906 – or so her publicist tells us.

To honor dear Mary, we are hosting a blogathon from May 3-10. Please visit the wonderful tributes at the links and on the dates listed below. If you’re able, leave our participants a quick “fan letter”.

Our cohostess for the Mary Astor Blogathon is the lovely and talented Dorian from Tales of the Easily Distracted. If you’d like to get even more information on the blogathon, you can visit her blog here.

Thanks to our contributors for your enthusiasm and all the Mary love.
