*Any meaningful discussion of 15-year-old Paris Hepburn begins with her iconic last name, its impactful, well-documented history dating back centuries to England and its enduring influence representing the Golden Age of Hollywood, class, humanitarianism and power to defy societal norms.

*Looking back over his extraordinary career, Stephen Wrench once wryly and proudly declared that he’s “performed and written with many infamous artists and bands but been a member of nothing.”

*Sir Sean Connery, who died on Halloween, was not only one of the most famous actors of the past 50 years, in 1999 he was named the “Sexiest Man of the Century” by People magazine.
