Margaret Mitchell, author of the novel "Gone With The Wind", died on August 16, 1949 at age 48.
She was struck by a taxi as she crossed the street on August 11 and died 5 days later without fully regaining consciousness.

That'll explain why she didn't become one of those many annoyingly-long-lived bints associated with that movie (just like the stars of it), then.

Nice pic. I remember that I always used to think lugubrious meant fat, before I looked it up. Probably because of people like him.
