Goddesses of big screen live on

YOUR headline article on the late Lauren Bacall (News, August 14) was rather misleading, then I read the accompanying article, which stated she was "one" of the last remaining living screen goddesses – and so she was.

However, we of a certain age are still left with four iconic goddesses, namely Luise Rainer (104), Olivia de Havilland (98), Maureen O'Hara (94) and Doris Day (92). The former two ladies are recipients of two Academy Awards.

These actresses, in their own right, provided us with many hours of delight with their respective performances.
