it’s a colorful life

It is said that all the screen stars from the 1940s were beautiful. All of them. Well the studios made sure of that. I understand it was written in their contracts that actors had to be “made up” at all times whenever in public. They were told how to wear their hair, how to act, what to wear, who to date.
But, I think I figured it out– black/white film. Maybe anyone has the potential to be beautiful in black & white.
Just think how much prettier our lives would be if the world we existed in was simply black & white.
Gray hair wouldn’t matter so much, choosing eye glasses would be a breeze. Wallpaper wouldn’t even exist, or maybe even paint. I’m thinking there might be two paint colors: dark and not-so-dark. Choosing a car would be strictly on style and shape. Blondes wouldn’t be having more fun, red heads would get more respect and eye color wouldn’t matter at all.
It would be simpler. Life would be less dramatic, less amplified, less high def. Most importantly, there would be less to dislike about everybody and everything. I like it.
