Claudette-Cleo-Cigarette

Claudette Colbert
When she wasn't playing Cleopatra or smoking cigarettes, Claudette Colbert could sometimes be seen playing a character named "Cigarette" in Under Two Flags (1936), where she replaced Simone Simone, who was being particularly "difficult" to the film's director, Frank Lloyd, who later directed Colbert in Maid of Salem, which featured Chief John Big Tree, a Seneca Indian who showed up in John Ford westerns and Cecil B. DeMille extravaganzas, which is of course completely irrelevant, except to provide a slender linguistic thread to the otherwise unrelated photographs in this post. Thank you for playing.

Gliding toward oblivion sounds cool - I'm muddling that direction.

Haha, interesting! I love Colbert in It Happened One Night. She's very beautiful.
