"Franklin, this cup 'o soup is really delicious. It really really is!"

"Let's smoke our ciggiebutts between this soup and the salad course, Mr. President."

" Katherine, please do me a big favor. Eleanor hasn't been eaten out in years..."

How many thousands of years ago did this happen OP?

R4 = the GOP, still bitter about losing 4 elections to FDR.

No thank you Mr. President, I'll light my own goddamned cigarette.

"May I borrow your wife for the afternoon?"

Hey Kate, look at that ugly dyke Eleanor looking out through the Blue Room window, finger banging herself looking at you.

I love old candid photos like this, simpler times I guess before the PR machines made everything a photo-op.

Incredibly overrated and declasse. Both.

How much pussy have you been getting these days, Kate?

Scotty Bowers was right. Her skin was awful.

"Wow, you really are super dykey in person."

I'd say this is from 1942, or 1943.

More photos of FDR & Kate here:

[quote]They were both unapologetically liberal Yankee aristocrats who used their cigarettes like theatrical props and delivered their crisp, taut opinions in the now-vanished “Mid-Atlantic accent,” that American upper-class tone popularly called “Locust Valley Lockjaw.” They were even distantly related through a common ancestor on The Mayflower. When President Franklin D. Roosevelt met actor Katharine Hepburn on September 22, 1940, however, there was more commonality than met the eye.

I love how he's drinking the soup straight from the bowl. Real old fashion high WASPS and white trash were not really that far apart in the sense of not being pretentious. Pretentious is for the nouveau riche and for the middle classes.

Do I see Camels and Chesterfields?

by Anonymousreply 1801/24/2013

Yes you do r18. Camels were FDR's favorite brand and Hepburn apparently favored Chesterfields. This was back in the days when all cigarettes were unfiltered and stronger than shit.

Hepburn smoked like a freight train, it's amazing she lived to be almost 100 years old.
