RIP Luise Rainer
If you have never heard of Luise Rainer, I wouldn't be that surprised. After becoming an instant starlet, and the first actor to ever win back to back Oscars for her roles in The Great Ziegfeld and The Good Earth, she quickly disappeared from Hollywood. Sadly, at the age of 104, she has passed away. Leaving Hollywood was her choice, and while I think agree that it was our lost, it is not often that people are able to leave at their height with an indelible memory of their work. Rainer was one of those actresses, and remains in the forefront of film and Oscar history. My thoughts and prayers go out to her friends and family tonight, and I know that she will be missed. Rest in Peace.
