Hey, Bea Arthur was a Marine in WW2.
To Bea, or not to Bea, that is the question.
In reference to my earlier post, this is one tough broad:
Arthur around the Bea Butch??
I was literally laughing reading this.
Jet pack. Wrist rockets. Cool helmet.
It always bugged me when people said Bea Arthur, particularly in her role as Maude, was masculine.
How is being gruff and tough antithetical to being feminine?
Ever read the newspaper strip in 1979? In one storyline, Lady Tarkin (yes, the Grand Moff’s widow) bears a remarkable resemblance to Ackmena. Separated twin sisters maybe?
Well she always played a mans man. note: A man’s man is a man who engages in activities that are traditionally viewed as masculine, and who earns the respect of other men.
