The birthday girl for July 7 is Shelley Duvall.
Hot on the heels of writing a post about Janet Leigh, I discovered that Shelley Duvall is also a Cancer. At first glance, these two women seem to have nothing in common. Janet Leigh fits into the archetype of the hard-boiled Cancer dame. Shelley Duvall is a modern-day Mother Goose with big, sensitive eyes that could break out into tears at any moment.
So it’s interesting to see that both of these women share something else: a single cinematic scene that will define their career where they share the screen with an axe-wielding (or knife wielding) maniac. Are Cancer women simply better screamers? It’s something I might need to look into.
