Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Kim Novak

Here is a famous song performed by the great jazz singer Jo Stafford, chosen to illustrate Kim Novak's beauty and class.
Jo Stafford (born in 1917, in Coalinga, California) is an American pop singer whose career spanned the late 1930's through the early 1960's. Stafford is greatly admired for the purity of her voice and is considered one of the most versatile vocalists of the era. Originally, she wanted to become an opera singer and studied voice as a child. At Columbia, she was the first recording artist to sell twenty-five million records. In the 1950's, she had a string of popular hits with Frankie Laine, six of which charted. In 1966, Stafford went into semi-retirement, retiring completely from the music business in 1975. Stafford wouldn't perform again until 1990, at a ceremony honoring Frank Sinatra.
Born (in 1933) Marilyn Pauline Novak, a Roman Catholic of Czech extraction, Kim Novak is an American actress who was one of America's most popular movie stars in the late 1950's. She is perhaps best known for her performance in Alfred Hitchcock's "Vertigo" (1958). She was discovered by Columbia Pictures searching for another beauty to replace the rebellious and difficult Rita Hayworth. Columbia decided to make the blonde and buxom actress their version of Marilyn Monroe. She soon became a most demanded actress. She was paired opposite Sinatra in "Pal Joey" (1957), which also starred Rita Hayworth. She showed a cunning sense of humor in Billy Wilder's cult classic "Kiss Me, Stupid" (1964) opposite Dean Martin. Novak has also made occasional appearances on TV over the years. She joined the cast of the series "Falcon Crest" in the role of Kit Marlowe during the 1986-1987 season. For her contribution to motion pictures, Novak was awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 1995, she was chosen by Empire Magazine in its list of the 100 sexiest stars in film history.
