Al Moore - February 1951 Esquire Magazine Gatefold - “The Last Musketeer” -

"Like Porthos, Athos, Aramis,
Living a life of darling,
She’s plumed and booted, ideally suited
For Everything she’s wearing.

She’s the last of the Musketeers -
D’Artagnan’s on the shelf.
But this girl of your schemes had diamond dreams:
She’s all for one - herself!

Contrary to Alex Dumas,
She hasn’t used her sword of yet.
By blinking her eye’s she slays fifty guys:
She’s one for all - she can get!”

A beautiful illustration from Esquire to say farewell to the month of February.

With actors, all our ages are out there for all to see - you can’t hide anything, really. And it’s kind of a relief. This is my age, this is what I look like without makeup on - who cares? That youth culture - that lying about your age - it’s all denial of death anyway.
