Taking A Second Look

Guthrie Dean; 1900 Jenny Lind — Fort Smith, Arkansas

The recent death of Jayne Mansfield calls to mind the pattern of tragedy set by other movie sex symbols. Marie (the Body) McDonald died from an "acute drug intoxication." A Chicago fire took the life of sultry Linda Darnell. One of Hollywood's all-time glamour queens, Marilyn Monroe, took an overdose of drugs and Carole Landis an overdose of sleeping tablets. Carole Lombard's reign as queen of Hollywood ended abruptly in an airplane crash. She was married to Clark Gable at the time. And now comes the auto crash death of Jayne Mansfield, outside of New Orleans. The Bible warns that "God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap." Galatians 6:7. Isaiah 28:1 tells us that worldly beauty "is a fading flower." The Lord said unto Samuel: "For man looketh on the outward appearance, but the Lord looketh on the heart." I Sam. 16:7. Peter states that it is the hidden man of the heart, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price. I Peter 3:4.
