Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Carroll Baker

Here are two famous songs, lovely performed by the delicate singer Anita Kerr, and chosen to emphasize the beauty of the glamorous Carroll Baker.
Anita Kerr (born Anita Jean Grilli in 1927, in Memphis, Tennessee) is an American singer, composer and music producer. Kerr's career peak was during the 1960's, in a time when women in her field were rare. Among her works were jingles for WLS-AM, a trilogy of albums with poet Rod McKuen titled "The Sea, The Earth, and The Sky", choral music for the first season of "The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour" (directing her own group, the Anita Kerr Singers) and several LPs, including one on Burt Bacharach songs.
Carroll Baker (born in 1931) is an American actress who has enjoyed popularity as both a serious dramatic actress and, particularly in the sixties, a movies "sex symbol". Despite being cast in a wide range of roles during her heyday, Baker's beautiful features, blonde hair, and distinctive drawl made her particularly memorable in roles as brash, flamboyant women. Baker's flashy portrayal of a Jean Harlow-type movie star in the 1964 hit "The Carpetbaggers" brought her a second wave of notoriety. Based on her Carpetbaggers performance, Levine began to position Baker to be a movies sex symbol, casting her in the title roles of two 1965 potboilers, "Sylvia" and "Harlow". She then moved to Europe. Eventually settling in Italy, she would spend the next several years starring in giallo thrillers. A lead role in Andy Warhol's "Bad" (1977) brought her back to American shores. The seventies also saw a return to the stage. Film and television work continued sporadically through the nineties, and the 2006 DVD release of "Baby Doll" features a documentary with Baker reflecting on the impact the film had on her career. An apocryphal story has it that a Masai chief offered 150 cows, 200 goats, sheep, and $750 for her while she was on location in Africa for the 1965 movie "Mister Moses". She has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Enjoy this display of sweet music and flamboyant beauty!
