Actresses with only one leg. A pre-emptive strike since it's clearly only a
matter of time:

<list begins>

Sarah Bernhardt

<list ends>

Perhaps you are thinking to film the Flannery O'Connor story about the
Bible saleman who steals a woman's wooden leg. THe story is called Good
Country People.

She was a very famous French actress. She did most of her career on
the stage in the 19th century, but she lived into the 20th century and
did some well known work in silent films.

Excuse me while I kill myself.
When I was a kid, any girl with a penchant for drama got called Sarah
Bernhardt. She may have been the first superstar. She played Hamlet.
Rostand wrote a play for her. Fame . . .

That much did turn up at IMDB, but that you guys knew she had only one
leg made me believe you were talking about someone else. I have to
admit I hadn't heard of her. Of if I had, it was in passing some time
back.

It rings a bell, but from far, far away. A distant memory. No one I
know ever referred to her so casually . . . nor so often. You sound a
little histrionic yourself, Little Sarah.

But now that I think of it, I don't know who Sarah Bernhardt is. When I
looked her up on IMDB, nothing of any use came back. Who is she?

She injured it on stage jumping down from a parapet. A few years later it
became gangrenous and they amputated. Ya wanna hear her telling jokes about
Mariah Carey?
