My mind’s a complete blank tonight.
But today I discovered someone I’d never heard of before: Pauline Boty.
She was a pop artist, actress, dancer, and famous beauty in early 60s London. She was at the centre of early 60s pop culture. She knew the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol. She appeared in several Ken Russell movies. All the guys were madly in love with her.
And then, in 1965, after giving birth to a baby girl, she died of leukemia aged just 25. And seems to have been almost completely forgotten thereafter. Which I guess is why I’d never heard of her. And that now seems to be like never having heard of Marianne Faithful or Nico or somebody.
