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

Yvonne De Carlo

Here is a song by the beautiful and recently deceased Yvonne De Carlo.
Yvonne De Carlo (born Margaret Yvonne Middleton) (1922 - 2007) was a Canadian-born American film and television actress. Cast in "The Ten Commandments" (1956) in a leading role (as Sephora, Moses' wife), De Carlo was part of a major hit. The film was a huge success and De Carlo was among those to be praised for her restrained work. However, her most famous role that led her to pop culture legacy is of "Lily Munster" in the cult television series "The Munsters" (1964-1966), which allowed De Carlo to demonstrate a comic flair that her films had failed to utilize. She also played Lily in the 1966 feature film "Munster, Go Home" and the 1981 TV movie "The Munsters' Revenge". For her contribution to the motion picture industry and for her contribution to television, Yvonne De Carlo was honored with 2 stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Trained in opera and a former chorister when she was a child in Vancouver, De Carlo possessed a powerful contralto voice and released an LP of standards called "Yvonne De Carlo Sings" in 1957. This album was orchestrated by the movie composer John Williams. From 1967 onward she became increasingly active in musicals, appearing in off-broadway productions of "Pal Joey" and "Catch Me If You Can". In early 1968 she joined Donald O'Connor in a 15 week run of "Little Me" staged between Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas, performing 2 shows per night. But her defining stage role came with her big break on Broadway in the Stephen Sondheim musical "Follies", which ran from February 1971 until July 1, 1972. Notable in the role of Carlotta Campion, she introduced the song "I'm Still Here". She also received recognition for her work in various horror movies, spoofs and thrillers.
Enjoy Yvonne's beauty and very interesting voice!
