Howards End: An Ivy-Covered Cottage in the Country
Scene from "Howards End" Dialogue of Henry Wilcox "Ruth’s last wish when she dies is scribbled on a piece of scrap paper on her death bed: Howards End should go to her new friend, Miss Margaret Schlegel." Her husband Henry and children are understandably baffled by this request, and a little angry. " Why would she leave the house to someone outside the family?" Her daughter Evie rips the paper up and tosses it into the fire.
About a month after Ruth’s death in Sept 1948, “The Babe Ruth Story,” a film by Allied Artists starring William Bendix, was released to theaters. Bendix is shown above in a 1948 back-page magazine ad attired in his Babe Ruth outfit, singing the praises of Chesterfield cigarettes. It appears he is also holding a Babe Ruth-monogrammed “Louisville Slugger” baseball bat.
