Dinah Shore was born 107 years ago today, on the 29th of February, 1916.
She evoked the excitement of nights spent doing new things till dawn.
But her career sat way outside the modern era of graphic pornography available to anyone of any age who lives in a free country and knows how to use an online device.
Honest, restrained adult sexuality was very much a part of her work as proved by lyrics like:
“I could have danced all night/and still have begged for more.
I could have spread my wings/And done a thousand things/I’d never done before.”
God Bless Freedom
