Good old E.W. Grove--inventor of Grove's Chill Tonic, builder of the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, NC, and endower of my public high school, yet all anyone remembers him for is that weird pig with the head of a happy baby.

UGH, MY BOO. Marlon is my favorite person in all of Old Hollywood (and new Hollywood, really) and I love this column. THANK YOU FOR COMBINING THEM.
But you got to see Lee Pace, right?? That had to make up for some of it.
