Let A Smile Be Your Umbrella today

“Whenever skies are gray,
Don’t worry or fret,
A smile will bring the sunshine,
And you’ll never get wet!
So, let a smile be your umbrella,
On a rainy, rainy day”

So sang Betty Clooney, the second half of the sister act that was dominated by the famous Rosemary. On 5 August 1976, Betty Clooney, the aunt of the glamorous George, died in Las Vegas from a brain aneurysm, and after her death her family established a foundation for victims of brain injury. It operates the Betty Clooney Center for Persons with Traumatic Brain Injury near Los Angeles.

In memory of Betty Clooney, then, Rainy Day says: “Let a smile be your umbrella / On a rainy, rainy day.”

The producers of Argo, George Clooney, Grant Heslov and Ben Affleck, had a fine time in London last night when their drama about the Iranian hostage crisis in 1979 stole the show and won the Best Film and Best Director gongs at the BAFTA Awards event. The British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) ceremony is the final major film occasion before this year’s Oscars, which will be handed out on 24 February in Hollywood, in a show hosted by Seth MacFarlane. The Big Mo is certainly with Affleck now. Go Argo!
