    >>Anne Francis more recently - two photos
    >> 
    >>Today is Ms. Francis's 80th birthday!
    >>I don't know how many years ago these photos were taken - maybe 10 to 20 - but she is still recognizable as the lovely Anne Francis. (Unlike a lot of people who really change a lot when the age**.)
    >>
    >>The bad news is that on her Web site, Ms. Francis stated that she has been having health problems, and that she cannot send out any autographs or answer any fan mail - indefinitely.
    >>
    >>Ms. Francis was treated for lung cancer in 2008 - '09, and we could just pray that it isn't that again. I don't know whether Ms. Francis has ever been a smoker or not - but a new idea has popped into my mind today:
    >>There were lots of years back in the latter 1940s, the 1950s, and the early 1960s - back when Ms. Francis was living and working in the Los Angeles Basin - when the air there got truly putrid and stagnant with smog for months on end: smog that was caused by the exhaust gases of autos, trucks, buses, diesel locomotives, factories, and oil refineries there.
    >>
    >>Ms. Francis could have been one of those people who is susceptible to lung damage and lung cancer from that. You might find it nearly impossible to believe how bad the smog got back then, but I can tell you what I have seen: newsreel movies from the 1950s of motorcycle policemen in Los Angeles County riding around with gas masks on. Yes, that bad, especially in the inland valleys there, such as the San Gabriel Valley (Pasadena, San Gabriel, etc.) and the San Fernando Valley: North Hollywood, Encino, Reseda, Van Nuys, Northridge, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, etc. 
    >> 
    >>Burbank wasn't too good either, and Ms. Francis could have been making TV series like Honey West in Burbank. 
    >> 
    >>It has just occurred to me that the name of Ms. Francis's adopted daughter is Margaret West. Perhaps Ms. Francis gave her the last name "West" from her character "Honey West" from the TV series. Ms. Francis earned an Emmy Award for that one, too, even though it was only produced for one TV year (30 episodes) on ABC-TV. 
    >> 
    >>Ms. Francis could have even called her little girl "Honey West" ! 
    >> 
    >>Shazam, 
    >> 
    >>DAW  
    >> 
    >>**Sometimes I go look in the mirror and ask, "Who's that?"   LOL
