Talking to Jane Mulkerrins of the Telegraph this year -
"'I've never dieted, never exercised, I eat like a pig, and I drink - mainly vodka,' declares China Machado, putting a Parliament to her lips before adding, somewhat superfluously: 'I still smoke, too'. If ever evidence were needed that it really is all in the genes, I'd present Machado - spry, sparky and unfeasibly youthful-looking at 82 - as exhibit A."

China (pronounced Cheena) was born in 1929 the same year 
as Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jacqueline Kennedy (below)


and Carmen was born June 3 1931 the same year 
as James Dean  and Anne Bancroft (below) 

1929 -31 was a good vintage for the birth of unforgettable legends. 
My Mom another Singular Beauty and most amazingly strong, 
and magnetic character was born in 1930,

Sylvia Rosemary Clarke Palmer c 1969

- the same year as  Clint Eastwood, Sean Connery, Ray Charles, 
Warren Buffett, Richard Harris, Gene Hackmann, 
Steve McQueen, Tippi Hedren, Jean Luc Godard 
and Spacemen Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin.

The same year the Empire State Building was started
and efficiently finished by 1931.
