The Great Gatsby (1974) dir. Jack Clayton
Brazilian journalist and writer.
She was a Brazilian writer, poet, playwright, journalist, and translator who had a large role in the Brazilian Modernist movement. Pagu was also politically active, being associated to the Brazilian Communist Party during the 1930 decade.
Galvão was an “advanced” woman for the moral and social standards of the time. When she was 15 years old, she collaborated with the Brás Jornal newspaper, using the pen name Patsy.
She completed the course at the São Paulo Normal School in 1928, and joined the Movimento Antropofágico, influenced by Oswald de Andrade and Tarsila do Amaral. The nickname “Pagu” was given to her by the poet Raul Bopp, who dedicated a poem to her (Coco de Pagu).
Pagu was arrested in 1931 by participating in a harbor workers’ strike in Santos, the first in a series of 23 detentions in her life.
In 1935 she was arrested in Paris as a foreign communist using a false identity, and was repatriated to Brazil. Pagu resumed her journalistic activity, but was again arrested and tortured by the forces of the dictatorship of Getúlio Vargas, and was jailed for five years. Upon leaving prison in 1940, she broke away from the Communist Party, choosing to instead follow a socialism of Trotskyist line. She joined the newspaper A Vanguarda Socialista.
She unsuccessfully attempted a run for state representative in the 1950 elections.
In 1952 she attended the School of Dramatic Art in São Paulo, taking their shows to Santos. Linked to the avant-garde theater, they presented her translation of Ionesco’s The Bald Singer. She also translated poems by authors such as Guillaume Apollinaire. Known as a major cultural influence in Santos, Pagu encouraged young talents such as actor and playwright Plinio Marcos and composer Gilberto Mendes. She devoted herself particularly to the stage, especially in encouraging amateur groups.
While still working as an art critic, she was stricken with cancer. She traveled to Paris to undergo surgery, but without positive results. Disappointed and desperately sick, Pagu attempted suicide, but did not succeed. She returned to Brazil and died in 1962, due to the disease.
She was married twice: Oswald de Andrade (1930) and Geraldo Ferraz (1941). She had two sons.

Amelia Earhart (1897-1937).
American aviation pioneer and author.
Earhart was the first female aviator to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. She set many other records, wrote best-selling books about her flying experiences, and was instrumental in the formation of The Ninety-Nines, an organization for female pilots. Her disappearance during a flight around the world in 1937 became an enduring mystery, fueling much speculation.
During a visit to her sister in Canada, Amelia developed an interest in caring for soldiers wounded in World War I. In 1918 she left junior college to become a nurse’s aide in Toronto.
She went on her first airplane ride in New York City in 1920, an experience that prompted her to take flying lessons. In 1921 she bought her first plane, a Kinner Airster, and two years later she earned her pilot’s license. In the mid-1920s Earhart moved to Massachusetts, where she became a social worker at the Denison House, a settlement home for immigrants in Boston. She also continued to pursue her interest in aviation.
In 1928, Earhart became the first female passenger to cross the Atlantic by airplane (accompanying pilot Wilmer Stultz), for which she achieved celebrity status. In 1932, piloting a Lockheed Vega 5B, Earhart made a nonstop solo transatlantic flight, becoming the first woman to achieve such a feat. She received the United States Distinguished Flying Cross for this accomplishment.
In addition to her piloting feats, Earhart was known for encouraging women to reject constrictive social norms and to pursue various opportunities, especially in the field of aviation.
In 1935, Earhart became a visiting faculty member at Purdue University as an advisor to aeronautical engineering and a career counselor to women students. She was also a member of the National Woman’s Party and an early supporter of the Equal Rights Amendment.
During an attempt to make a circumnavigational flight of the globe in 1937 in a Purdue-funded Lockheed Model 10-E Electra, Earhart and navigator Fred Noonan disappeared over the central Pacific Ocean near Howland Island.
She was married to George P. Putnam.

This week marks the 100th anniversary of “The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari,” one of the first great ho-rror films! With contorted sets and distorted psychology, “Caligari” weaves a web of surrealist nightmare that’s still ensnaring folks to this very day! Tim Burton owes his entire aesthetic to “Caligari”; Universal took notes for their monster films; the entire genre was built upon its twisted foundation. It features one of the first surprise endings and one of the first movie monsters and… well, words can’t do it justice! Check out the film below and see the birth of the ho-rror genre!
Here it is, folks:
